About Ari Shaffir

Ari Shaffir: Jew
Ari Shaffir was raised as a religious, Orthodox Jew. He attended orthodox Jewish school, lived in a religious community, and lived in a Jewish seminary in Israel (known as a Yeshiva) for 2 years. Once he returned to America, Ari lost his religion, realizing he was, and probably always had been, an atheist. For the next two decades, he came to terms with the religious upbringing and thoughts that are rooted deeply within him. And now, 20 years later, he’s finally ready to talk about Judaism from both an insider perspective who knows more than almost anyone about the religion, and also from an outsider perspective as someone who has no allegiance to the teachings.

There are several ticket resellers and secondary markets selling tickets to our events. Ticket resellers often try to mimic our website to appear legitimate. However, the ONLY official website for The Pabst Theater Group venues is www.pabsttheater.org. Please note: we set up occasional offers through sites including, but not limited to: Groupon, Goldstar, official artist websites and their official fan clubs. If you have any questions regarding the legitimacy of a secondary outlet selling tickets to our shows, please call our box office directly at 414-286-3205.

If you are interested in an event that has already sold out, please sign up to become an eMember and follow us on social media – we will announce any releases through those channels. Do not buy from a third party or ticket scalping company.

Purchasing tickets from any other seller or website runs a very high risk of receiving fraudulent and/or invalid tickets.
