The beloved comedian from When Harry Met Sally, Analyze This and, for the younger generation, Monsters Inc., will be doing a stand-up special at Dr. Phillips in 2017.

Crystal is an award-winning actor, director, writer, comedian, and producer. He announced the "Spend the Night with Billy Crystal" Tour coming off of a critically acclaimed Australian tour, and will bring his brand of warm, relaxed and often political comedy to more than 30 U.S. cities.

According to WESH-2, "Spend the Night With Billy Crystal" will be "loose, unpredictable, and intimate" with both stories and film clips, Crystal said.

Tickets for the Feb. 1, 2017, show go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. and will be available here. Regular admission tickets start at $69, and there will also be several VIP packages available.
