Natasha Leggero will not be traveling to Fargo for its second annual Comedy Fest, kicking off tonight at the Fargo Theatre. Nick Thune has been added to the lineup and will perform this evening with Moshe Kasher and local mc, John Kennedy.
“Not exactly kicking off my tour with a bang as I am canceling my first show,” Leggero said in a released statement. “Fargo, please understand! I am a worried new mom and I don’t feel comfortable leaving my baby amidst an escalating global pandemic while LA is in a state of emergency. My husband, Moshe Kasher, is a very brave man of his word so he will be there. I am not scared of Fargo, just the hourly escalation of all things Corona here in LA and I don’t feel comfortable traveling and leaving my child. Please accept my truly talented replacement, Nick Thune.”
