Stranded Comedian John Mulaney Abruptly Cancels Show in Placer County, Promises Rescheduled Date

Thunder Valley, a popular casino resort near Lincoln, California, left comedy fans disappointed on Thursday night. Comedian John Mulaney was forced to cancel his show at the Venue due to unexpected travel complications. Mulaney, renowned for his Netflix stand-up specials and his time on “Saturday Night Live,” made the announcement just one hour before his scheduled 8 p.m. performance.

Taking to social media, Mulaney expressed his apologies to ticket holders and explained that he was stranded one plane ride away. He promised to reschedule the first night of his two-night set for Friday, April 19. Thunder Valley Casino Resort officials confirmed that tickets for Thursday’s show would remain valid for the new date, and those who purchased tickets through the casino could obtain refunds at the Rewards Center. While Ticketmaster users were not alerted through the app, the new date for those who booked through the system was already visible at showtime.

The exact location of Mulaney’s travel troubles remains unclear. His previous show took place at a casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma, and he was spotted courtside at an NBA game in Los Angeles on Sunday. Despite the cancellation, Mulaney assured his fans that his 8 p.m. performance on Friday would go ahead as planned. Tickets for the concert titled “John Mulaney: In Concert!” are still available.

This isn’t the first time Mulaney has faced difficulties with show dates in the Sacramento area. In September 2022, he canceled shows in Concord and Reno, Nevada. Friday’s show at Thunder Valley offered ticket prices ranging from $74.95 to $149.95 via Ticketmaster.

In a message to his fans on social media, Mulaney apologized once again for the cancellation. Despite the disappointment, comedy enthusiasts can still look forward to his upcoming show on Friday.
