Comedian Tig Notaro and musician John Popper will perform at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater this fall. 

Notaro will perform on Sept. 19 and Popper will perform Sept. 25. Tickets for both shows will be available 11 a.m. Friday, July 13. Tickets start at $35 for Notaro and $40 for Popper. 

Both shows start at 8 p.m.

A harmonica player, guitarist and vocalist, Popper formed his band, Blues Traveler, with his high school friends in the late 1980s in New York City. Their 1994 release, “Four,” brought them mainstream success. 

Popper went on to release a solo album, “Zygote,” in 1999, and has continued to tour with Blues Traveler and as a solo performer.

Singer songwriter Katrina Woolverton will open for Popper.

A comedian, actor and writer, Notaro will perform the following week. In 2017, Rolling Stone named Notaro one of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time. 

Her work includes writing, production, and acting in the semi-autobiographical Amazon series, “One Mississippi.” Her 2016 HBO special, “Boyish Girl Interrupted,” was nominated for an Emmy Award and a Grammy Award. She also received GLAAD Media Award nominations for the Netflix original documentary, “Tig,” and her memoir, “I’m Just a Person,” is a New York Times Best Seller.
