Following a brief Intetnet presale, tickets went on sale Feb. 3 for an April 10 appearance by Comedy Central's newest breakout standup star, Daniel Tosh, at Johnny Mercer Theatre.
According to Civic Center director Cindy Ogletree, it was sold out by noon. So a second show was added.
Focusing on Internet videos, the comedian's series Tosh.0 is in its fourth season. According to Comedy Central, it's the highest-rated cable comedy show among viewers 18-34, and that's where the money is, folks.
Tickets for Tosh's second show - at 9:30 p.m. - are $39.50, $49.50, and $59.50, at etix.com.
More bands and artists have been added to the March 7-10 Savannah Stopover. They are Milagres (their third Savannah appearance), Gemma Ray, X Ray Eyeballs, Pujol, St. Lucia, Girl In A Coma, Guards, Doldrums, Ponderosa, Brown Bird, Buxton and Chamberlin, Betsy Kingston and The Crowns, Fine Peduncle, The District Attorneys, Speak, Quincy Mumford, Christopher Paul Sterling, The Ewins, The Head, The Preservation, The Victories, Wowser Bowser and Bare Wires.
Jack White's Third Man Records will be here on March 9 and 10 with its "Rolling Record Store."
