Anderson Cooper is generally associated with serious breaking news on CNN or for heady essays on CBS’s 60 Minutes. But when taking the stage with longtime friend and Bravo talk show host Andy Cohen, things will go quickly go from serious to “shallow” when the pair comes to Houston.

Fans of Cooper and Cohen can catch the duo's popular live show “AC2: An Intimate Evening with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen” this fall at the Smart Financial Center on October 25. Houston is among the only 10 dates announced thus far on the tour; the two drew a packed and raucous house at Smart Financial in late 2017. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday, June 7.

Audiences around the country have fallen in love with Cooper and Cohen's night of conversation, which is billed as “unscripted, uncensored, and unforgettable” and has been touring since 2015. One can expect to see the curtain pulled back on everything from pop culture to world events as the pair interviews one another and take questions from the audience.

The silver-haired Cooper has spent the last 23 years accruing Emmys and Peabodys for his steadied coverage of world events and his memoir, Dispatches from the Edge, topped the New York Times' Bestseller list. However, he promises “no serious stuff” at the show. He and Cohen will dish on the popular Real Housewives series, of which Cohen is the executive producer. Cohen is an Emmy award-winning host and executive producer of Watch What Happens: Live, Bravo’s late night, interactive talk show. He has also written two New York Times’ Bestsellers: Most Talkative: Stories from the Frontlines of Pop Culture, and The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year.

Given their impressive credentials, not to mention the current state of geopolitical politics and pop culture, fans can expect quite the discussion from this dynamic duo.


“AC2: An Intimate Evening with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen” hits Houston on Friday, October 25 at Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land; 18111 Lexington Blvd. Tickets go on Friday, June 7, 2019 at 9 am and are available at Ticketmaster or charge by phone at 800-745-3000.
