January 5, 2023

Tickets on sale now

ISMO live at Finlandia's Hirvonen HallFinlandia University will host stand-up comedian ISMO on February 17 and 18 for two shows. Tickets are on sale now.

The widely acclaimed comedian and Youtuber was named 2014’s Funniest Person in the World in his U.S. debut at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood. ISMO has been called “the most insightful comic in Finland” and as a new resident in the United States, ISMO continues to be the ultimate observer. His uniquely observational comedy makes people see familiar things differently through his new-to-America perspective.

ISMO’s universally hilarious point of view has attracted fans like Gabriel Iglesias, who recently asked ISMO to open for his groundbreaking special at Dodger Stadium in front of 60,000 fans. In 2018, ISMO was the first Finnish comedian to perform on Conan, and the clip of his set has become one of the most viewed late-night sets with over 106 million views. In the fall of 2019, ISMO made his debut appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden with an overwhelming response. 

Both shows will be held in the Hirvonen Hall Auditorium, 417 Quincy St. in Hancock. Three seating options are available, including:

  • $45 – Exclusive SeatingThe Exclusive Seating is the middle section of the floor level in the Hirvonen Auditorium. These seats are cushioned and provide a great view!
  • $40 – Standard SeatingThe Standard seats include the seats down the left and right sections of the Hirvonen Auditorium.
  • $35 – Balcony SeatingThe Balcony Seating consists of all the seats in the balcony of the Hirvonen Auditorium.
