Show cancelled: Comedian Mike Birbiglia

Comedian Mike Birbiglia has cancelled his performance at Furman University originally set for Thursday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. McAlister Auditorium.

Citing weather-related concerns, his agents have issued a statement:

“With Hurricane Irma on the prowl and South Carolina declaring a state of emergency, we are cancelling a handful of dates in the south.  Unfortunately, Furman is amongst those dates, along with a Charleston, SC date and another in NC.  We expect travel to be a nightmare and weather to be unpredictable.”

Ticket refunds from Ticketmaster are available through that outlet. Furman faculty, staff and students who purchased tickets can receive refunds through the Furman Student Activities Board (FUSAB) office located in Trone Student Center. Ticket must be presented to receive refund.

University officials do not expect the event to be rescheduled.
