Two days after announcing Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes’ July 11 drive-in concert, Monmouth Park in Oceanport has confirmed a second one: a comedy show featuring Jim Gaffigan, July 12.
Tickets go on sale June 5 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.com, with pre-sales already having started.
The admission fee is $165 per vehicle ($200 or $225 for gold circle), with a maximum of four people allowed per vehicle. As with the Jukes show, this one is presented by the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank, and will benefit the Basie and the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.
Gaffigan posted on his Facebook page, today: “I’m excited to announce I’m starting a Drive Thru Comic Tour. Yes, stand up comedy while you sit comfortably in your car. My first show will be in Oceanport, NJ July 12 @ Monmouth Park. More to come.”
Gaffigan provided no details on any other drive-in shows.
