Comedy icons, writers, producers, actresses and “Saturday Night Live” alumni Tina Fey and Amy Poehler broke the record for most consecutive shows by any comedian at the Beacon Theatre with their sold-out run of 11 consecutive shows at the iconic venue between February 7 and 18, as part of their Restless Leg tour. The previous record of 10 consecutive shows was set this past October by Trevor Noah.

The Beacon is a comedy haven, hosting the genre's biggest names for multi-show runs, including Trevor Noah, Ali Wong, Sebastian Maniscalco and Eddie Izzard. Legendary comedian Jerry Seinfeld currently holds the record for the most shows by any comedian at the venue with 113 shows and counting.

The Restless Leg tour marked the first time either Fey or Poehler performed at the venue, and throughout their sold out-run, the duo welcomed surprise guests including Fred Armisen, Rachel Dratch, and Maya Rudolph. The shows were promoted by Live Nation.
