Louie Anderson’s Spring Tour of Minnesota Cities Continues with Select Standup Comedy Dates in Coon Rapids, Ham Lake, Mora, Duluth And Grand Rapids

TWIN CITIES — May 9, 2016

Minnesota’s favorite comic son is coming back again to give audiences 10,000 more laughs in his home state this month. Entering the third leg of his Minnesota spring tour, Anderson is returning for one-night stands in Coon Rapids (5-20), Ham Lake (5-21), Mora (5-24), Duluth (5-25), Grand Rapids (5-26).

His special May 20th date in Coon Rapids will include a silent auction for Vets, including autographed scripts, his best-selling books, pictures and other memorabilia.

“I have one goal in stand up right now,” Anderson says of his Minnesota spring romp: “I want to play every city and town in the state that made me the stand-up comic I am! Life is short, laugh your ass off.”

The man Comedy Central calls “One of the greatest Stand-Up Comedians of all time” has returned to the stand up circuit after a smashing first season of the new FX show “Baskets”, which is on hiatus until shooting commences again next fall. Anderson is riding a new wave of popularity not only among fans fond of his family-centric stand-up act, but with TV critics and the media for his quirky and touching motherly portrayal of Christine Baskets. The show also stars Zach Galifianakis.

A best-selling author and two-time Emmy winner, who grew up in the St. Paul projects with 10 other siblings will be back for the following shows:
