Joan Rivers at The Colonial on 5/10

    Joan Rivers is a comedy legend.

She continues to dominate television, retail sales on QVC and concert venues – including the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield on Friday night. She even still makes the headlines for offending someone about something.

  Stand-up comedian, Demetri Martin, brings his “Point Your Face at this Tour” to The Calvin in Northampton, MA tonight. (He will also be at The Egg in Albany on Saturday - but that show is sold out.) 

Demetri Martin has appeared on Comedy Central Presents, has two one-hour Comedy Central stand-up specials, he was the Trendspotting/Youth Correspondent on The Daily Show, a writer on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, had a Comedy Central Series entitled Important Things with Demetri Martin, appeared on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords (which I mention because it is a personal favorite), and starred in Ang Lee’s film, Taking Woodstock.

Next Tuesday, Demetri’s new book, Point Your Face at This: Drawings, will be available - it is published by Grand Central and is available for pre-order now. The book is a new collection of Demetri’s drawings - single panel, single page line drawings like the one’s he presents on a large pad of paper during many of his stand-up shows.

Eddie Izzard at The Bardavon

British comedian Eddie Izzard will bring his brilliant and unique form of stand-up comedy to the stage at The Bardavon in Poughkeepsie, New York this Saturday, February 16th (as of this posting, tickets are available for the 6pm show, available on The Bardavon website or by calling 845-473-2072).

Comedian, dramatic actor of stage and screen, activist, transvestite, marathon runner, any one descriptor (or even a bundle of them) applied to Izzard would fail to summarize his career or the man himself. Still - with his help - we try in this segment.

    Stand-up comedian, Marc Maron, kicks of his “Out of the Garage” Tour at The Egg in Albany, NY this Friday, February 1st.

The title of the show refers to the home-studio in his garage – the primary location used to record his very popular podcast “WTF with Marc Maron.” The podcast features perceptive stream-of-consciousness introductions and lengthy (usually one-on-one, occasionally one-on-two for example: Tenacious D) conversations with iconic entertainment personalities. The podcast premiered in 2009 and regularly hits #1 on iTunes and has been called a “must-listen” by Vanity Fair, The New York Times, and many other publications and entertainment websites.
