Though there were no tour dates posted at the time, I knew something was up when I spotted Stephen Merchant‘s mug at the bottom of the Citi Private Pass website yesterday. Turns out I my instincts were right and tickets are now on presale (Citi Password: first 6 digits of your citicard; Live Nation Password: KEYS) for Stephen Merchant at The Town Hall on December 20, 2011*. It’s quite possible (likely even) that more tour dates will be announced between now and then, but for now it’s just NYC. In the mean time, you can catch Stephen as the voice of Tom in Gnomeo and Juliet and as Owen Wilson’s hapless buddy Gary in the new Farrelly brothers film Hall Pass.
* Put your tickets in a safe place.
