Shane Gillis performing at Dr. Phillips Center

A comedian who holds the record for the shortest tenure in Saturday Night Live history will take the stage at the Dr. Phillips Center this weekend.

Shane Gillis will perform on Friday, September 15, at 7 p.m. at the Dr. Phililps Center for the Performing Arts (445 S Magnolia Avenue).

Gillis was named one of Just for Laughs’ “New Faces” at their yearly comedy festival in Montreal, and claimed the title of “Philly’s Phunniest” in 2016, a year after finishing third.

In 2019, Gillis joined Saturday Night Live as a featured cast member. Five days after he was brought on, and without ever appearing in a show, NBC released him for comments he made in a podcast a year prior.

In the years that have followed, Gillis has produced several successful projects, including multiple standup specials and “Gilly and Keeves,” a collection of comedy sketches that he co-created with comedian John McKeever.

Gillis is one half of the “Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast” with friend and fellow comedian Matt McCusker, and is a frequent guest on the “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

This month, Gillis released his second live comedy special on Netflix, Shane Gillis: Beautiful Dogs.
