Taking the stage on Carnival LIVE sailings in early 2016 will be music legends Gladys Knight, Journey, KC & The Sunshine Band and Trace Adkins, plus comedienne Kathy Griffin. In addition, Carnival has just announced that they have added country star Sam Hunt, plus comedians Chris Tucker and Jim Gaffigan to their lineup.
Chris Tucker is an award-winning actor and comedian best known for his starring role as Detective James Carter in the Rush Hour films. He became a favorite on HBO Def Comedy Jam and starred in the 1995 cult classic Friday and 2013 Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook.
Jim Gaffigan is a comedian whose humor largely revolves around fatherhood, observations, and food. He is also regarded as a "clean" comic, using little profanity in his routines. He has had several successful comedy specials, including Mr. Universe and Jim Gaffigan: Obsessed, both of which received Grammy nominations. This is a man that has sold out a show in Madison Square but you can see him up close on your Carnival cruise!
Getting tickets to any of these shows is as easy as purchasing them on Carnival’s online shore excursion booking page prior to sailing, or contacting the shore excursion desk once onboard (if there’s anything left by the time you get onboard). Tickets run about $30 dollars per person. VIP tickets will sell for around $100 per person but that will guarantee seating in the first three rows and include an exclusive meet and greet with photo opportunities.
