The Gracie Theatre Features a Night of Comedy with Film and Television Star Paul Reiser
BANGOR, MAINE – February 24, 2014 – Stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and musician Paul Reiser will be appearing at the Gracie Theatre at Husson University. Saturday, April 12. Reiser, most often remembered for his eight year starring role in the hit series “Mad About You,” is re-emerging on the comedy scene with his quick wit and comedic talent.
A seasoned entertainer, Reiser unleashes his hilarious insights about the absurdities of modern life when performing stand-up. The evening of comedy marks the final show of the Gracie Theatre’s second season, sponsored in part by Bangor Savings Bank with show sponsorship by WBRC.
“In addition to being a great actor, Paul Reiser has a sharp wit and distinctive delivery. His stand-up is pure genius,” remarked Jeri Misler, Gracie Theatre’s managing director. “People will relate to his material; laughing about their own lives, quirks and commonalities.”
Reiser continues to add to his ever expanding list of accomplishments. In addition to co-creating and starring in the critically acclaimed NBC series, “Mad About You,” which garnered Emmy, Golden Globe, American Comedy Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations, his successes also include his most recent book, Familyhood, the long awaited follow-up to Babyhood. His first book, Couplehood, sold over two million copies and reached the number one spot on The New York Times Bestseller List.
Most recently, Reiser was cast alongside Michael Douglas and Matt Damon for the HBO
made-for-TV movie “Behind the Candelabra,” based on the autobiographical novel about Liberace. Some of Reiser’s other film roles have included, “Aliens,” “Beverly Hills Cop” (I and II), “Diner,” “Bye, Bye Love,” and “The Thing About My Folks” – which he wrote and starred in with Academy Award winning actors Peter Falk and Olympia Dukakis.
