By this time, probably everybody would already be familiar with the deal that goes with the Wilbur Theater. And for those living under a rock, here’s a quick recap. This historic performing arts theater is well known for hosting live comedy and music. And just for the record, all notable celebrities including Jimmy Fallon, Kathy Griffin, Joel McHale, Joe Rogan, Tig Notaro, and David Cross have performed their stand-up comedic bits here. And if anybody is keeping score of their success, all you need to do is sell out at Wilbur. If you manage to do that, you just made your mark! Now after trying throughout his career, Jay Pharoah has finally achieved that milestone. Undoubtedly, this is a huge moment for the actor who is completely humbled by the response.
Jay Pharoah’s Long Career
Jay Pharoah has been in business for the past 9 years now. But this remains the only time that he was completely sold out at the Wilbur Theater. The American actor, comedian, rapper and impressionist has done great things ever since he debuted on Saturday Night Live in 2010. In fact, he was even titled the ‘breakout player’ for that particular SNL season. Moving on, he worked on some independent films and sport comedies along with commercials alongside fellow SNL cast members. He even hosted the American Music Awards in 2016 alongside popular model Gigi Hadid. Now Pharoah has resorted to working on his first album with record producer Myles William.
Recently, Jay Pharoah took to Instagram to express his gratitude at the latest milestone he accomplished in his career. For the first time in his career, he was sold out at the Wilbur Theater. In fact, over 1100 tickets were sold in Boston this time while back in 2011, he could not even manage to complete 200 tickets at the same venue. He dedicated an Instagram post to this thanking Boston for making this possible. He even added in the caption that it might not mean a lot to many people. But these little moments kept him going in life. And encourage him to continue striving to achieve greater things.
Jay also added in the caption that it was just the beginning. He attributed the glory to his God, and concluded by thanking Boston another time.
