THE JOKE’S ON ME – 2021 REUNION TOUR
The Sofia @ B Street Theatre ~ November 20-21, 2021
Performs with his all-star band
What a difference 2 years make! After retiring the band in 2019, the pandemic seems to have changed things. All the players are longing to get back together and have some fun.
So, here we go again! As always there’s music and the stories about them. Comedy and just an all around great time. Same amazing musicians. (Plus Jack.) Lots of new songs and stories.
Virtual tickets are now available for the Sunday performance on November 21st at 4pm. Streaming will occur via Vimeo and a link will be emailed to you prior to the event.
Please note, virtual tickets only gain you access to a virtual link, not the show in-person.
"The Joke's on Me" has had a swell run of 11 shows across eleven years. This will be an evening of terrific live music and laughs as Sacramento's adopted favorite son performs with his all star band.
Along with some long-standing keepers, Jack has added new personal faves this year by Gerry Rafferty, Mountain, Dave Edmunds, Michael Nesmith, Vanilla Fudge and The Beatles.

Jack’s back story:
Across the country, PBS viewers know the Emmy-winning Gallagher from his long running shows, “Money Track,”“Money Moves,” “Off-Limits” and “Kids, Cash and Common Sense.” Network/cable television included his own ABC sitcom “Bringing Up Jack,” and an occasional recurring role as Larry David’s doctor on the HBO Original Series “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
A favorite of talk/variety show hosts and audiences, the nationally known stand –up comedian has made numerous appearances across the years on “The Tonight Show” with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, as well as NBC's “Late Night with Conan O'Brien.”
And a certain generation knows him from the 1991 Bobcat Goldthwait cult classic, “Shakes the Clown.”
But it is his one–man monologue shows commissioned by Buck Busfield and the B Street Theatre here in Sacramento that have created and sustained Gallagher’s die-hard fans. His critically acclaimed works--“Letters to Declan” (1998), “Just The Guy” (2003),
“What He Left” (2006), “A Different Kind of Cool” (2010), "Complete and Unfinished" (2013), the aforementioned "5 Songs"(2015), "Concussed: Four Days In The Dark" (2017) and "A Stand-Up Guy" (2019)have given the Irish-American writer, monologist and family man a longer-form chance to dig for common truths via his autobiographical and comic exposés. Becoming a rock singer with a kick-ass band, well that was a life-long dream now fulfilled.
