Just announced over the weekend, comedian Artie Lange will play Laugh It Up! Comedy Club at Mahoney's in Poughkeepsie this Friday night (Jan. 18).
Artie Lange was a beloved member of The Howard Stern Show for many years. Lange was picked as a member of the sketch television show Mad TV in 1995 and he went on to star in the movie Dirty Work with Norm Macdonald in 1998. Stand-up comedy performances include It's the Whiskey Talkin' (2004) and "Jack and Coke" (2009). He co-wrote, produced, and starred in his own film Beer League in 2006 and wrote his first autobiography Too Fat Too Fish, which entered The New York Times Best Seller listed at number 1 in 2008. He followed that up with the book Crash and Burn in 2013. He also starred in the HBO comedy series Crashing and hosted his own podcast called the Artie Quitter Podcast which he launched in January of 2015. Last October Lang was scheduled to play a show at The Ramada in Fishkill but the show was cancelled after it was reported that the comedian was hospitalized. Looking forward to seeing the great Artie Lange back in the Hudson Valley after a long absence this weekend! Tickets for the show (doors at 6pm, show at 7pm) are on sale and available here. Get them quick before they are gone.
