Comedian Lisa Lampanelli to stand out at Palace Theatre

“She’s more than a standup. She’s a standout.” Jim Carrey said it best. Lisa Lampanelli certainly stands out among comedians and she is bringing her raunchy performance to the Palace Theatre on Saturday, September 24.

Dubbed the insult comic, Lisa pokes fun of celebrities, audience members and even herself. No one can dodge the one-liners Lisa delivers during her standup routine.

The Connecticut-native is a regular on late night television, and a frequent guest and guest host on Howard Stern's Sirius XM satellite radio shows.

Howard says, “She's the one person who will be invited to a roast and destroy everything in her path and leave you wondering who could follow her. Lisa will steal the show every time.”
Often seen on Comedy Central’s celebrity roasts, Lisa thrives as the “Queen of Mean.” In addition to performing standup, Lisa has appeared on Inside Amy Schumer, Bounty Hunters, and Reno 911!

If comic relief is what you need this fall, put the Lisa Lampanelli show on your calendar. Tickets can be purchased here.

THIS Friday, December 4, 2015 at 8:00 pm, the voice of a generation will be awaken from its slumber in the vocal cadences of John Pizzarelli as he celebrates the life and musical legacy of Frank Sinatra. Having the opportunity to open for one of the legendary singer's last tours, Frank Sinatra would leave a lasting impression upon John in five simple words, "Eat something, you look terrible". The rest is, as they say, history.

Gracing the stage of The Palace Theatre in beautiful downtown Stamford, CT. John Pizzarelli will be delighting all with not only the renditions of "Ol Blue Eyes" but of some Christmas classics as well. Having been interviewed by the Daily Voice and the Ct Post  it is of note that stylistically he differs from his counterpart, but still knows how to make every note his own.

Pizzarelli featured in Sunday's edition of The Advocate

Hal Holbrook's Mark Twain is BACK and Better Than Ever!

To kick off our Theatre Series, Hal Holbrook returns to The Palace in the role of his lifetime. On September 26, Holbrook joins us as Mark Twain in Hal Holbrook’s Mark Twain Tonight! 

Holbrook uses letters and journal entries from Twain’s life to give modern audiences an idea of the person behind the internationally adored books. The show is biting, funny, and makes the audience feel like Mark Twain is really standing there in front of them, talking about his life and his work.
Holbrook, a critically acclaimed actor for his work on the stage and on the screen, began this project in the early 1950s as a show where he played various people from history, interviewed by his wife Ruby. Twain quickly becoming a favorite of both Holbrook and the audience, the show morphed into a one man show with Twain. The show premiered in 1954, and he toured around various colleges and local theatres. He eventually was picked up by producers and brought the show to New York in 1966. He earned a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Play, and an Emmy Award in 1967 for the broadcasted version of the show.

Poster from Holbrook's original show
The show is still evolving even fifty years after its premiere. The original program from the 1959 Off-Broadway engagement included the note “While Mr. Twain’s selections will come from the list below, we have been unable to pin him down as to which of them he will do. He claims this would cripple his inspiration. However, he has generously conceded to a printed program for those who are in distress and wish to fan themselves.” This still appears on programs for the show.

Having given this performance at The Palace over 40 years ago, Holbrook is eager to return. Come and see the work of one man’s incredible career, in the role that started it all.
