One of the nation’s fast-rising comedians, John Crist, has sold out venues across the nation on his ‘Emotional Support Tour’ since February, and today, he announces a performance stop at Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, MN on Friday, April 12, 2024 at 7:00 p.m. 

“I’m not surprised we’re adding all these new dates! Every time we do the show and post clips of it online, the comments are filled with people asking, ‘When are you coming to my city?,’” says Crist. “And every night in our meet and greets, people tell us they flew to see the show, so we figured we’d add as many more cities as possible in 2024!”

A viral sensation, Crist has amassed a loyal fanbase of 7+ Million followers and more than 1 Billion video views – all thanks to his no-holds-barred approach to southern-bred humor and undeniable relatability. Named among Pollstar’s Top 10 Comedy Tours in the World and on track to sell well-over 100,000 tickets, here’s a peek into why fans can’t get enough of his laugh-out-loud, stand-up set:

[],” via YouTube and his best-selling, debut book, “Delete That” via Penguin Random House, but he also launched his weekly podcast, “Net Positive []” — one of the fastest-rising comedy podcasts in the nation, which features bi-weekly, in-depth conversations with special guests including fellow comedians Matt RifeLeanne Morgan, and Trey Kennedy, musicians Tyler Hubbard and Scott Stapp of Creed, and more. 

From NASCAR to the popular “church or weed shop” debate, Country music lyrics in real life and more, Crist covers all of life’s important topics across the internet. To purchase tickets to the ‘Emotional Support Tour’ and for additional information on John Crist, please visit []
