Antoine won a crowd favorite when he featured at the Paramount Theater last Fall and by popular demand, he returns to Charlottesville.

Since 2002, the tour has traveled the country with hugely successful shows and has established the reputation of putting out high quality comedy with only national headliners on the bill.
