She will perform another set Saturday, July 16 at 7 p.m. on The Heath Mainstage. The previously announced 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. performances on Friday, July 15th, are now sold out. Online or by phone, tickets for the additional show are now available for purchase at a cost of between $18 and $35.

Hannah Einbinder has swiftly made a name for herself in the entertainment industry as both an actor and a stand-up comedian. Opposite Emmy Winner Jean Smart on HBO Max’s Hacks, she plays "Ava," a new comedic writer who, following a Twitter controversy, gets the only job she can find: writing for legendary stand-up comedian "Deborah Vance" (Smart) in Las Vegas. Hannah and the program have been renewed for a second season due to its critical praise.

"An LA-based stand-up comic facing her first main part, Einbinder, shines in the character of Ava, which is her first major film role. It's all the more effective when Ava finally begins to face some painful realities about herself because of her precise timing and tired California drawl, which she delivers to the role with such appealing conviction," says EW.

She was nominated for several awards for her work in Hacks, including the 73rd Primetime Emmys for best supporting actress in a comedy series, the Critics' Choice TV Awards for best supporting actress in a comedy series, the HCA TV Awards for best supporting actress in a streaming comedy series, the SAG Awards for best ensemble cast in a comedy series, and the Gold Derby TV Awards for best comedy supporting actress.

It's true that Einbinder has never had a prominent role on television before, but she's no stranger to the world of stand-up comedy, having performed at numerous clubs and festivals across the country. A 2019 New Face of Comedy at the famous Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, as well as one of Vulture's "Comics to Watch of 2019," she has solidified her position as one of the industry's most witty newcomers. Chelsea Handler, Dana Gould, Demetri Martin, and Reggie Watts have all performed with Einbinder as an opener. Earlier this year, she made her network television debut as a stand-up comic on Stephen Colbert's Late Show. Los Angeles is where she currently calls home.

Ticket prices range from $25 for normal sitting to $35 for front row VIP table seats, $32 for VIP table seating, and $28 for mezzanine table seating. Cocktail service is included at all ticket prices, with a two-drink minimum, unless otherwise stated.
