In Concert at The Mahaffey Theater Saturday, Sept. 28
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (July 5, 2013) – A funny man who is often compared to his idol, John Belushi, Artie Lange is a comedian, actor, writer, producer, entrepreneur and radio personality who finds humor observing life and telling stories. He will perform at The Mahaffey Theater on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 8 pm. Tickets starting at $32.50 go on sale Friday, July 12 at noon.
He is currently hosting The Artie Lange Show, broadcast locally on WHPT-FM, 102.5 the Bone. The Fox News Radio show is an offshoot of The Nick and Artie Show that he launched with comedian Nick DiPaolo in 2011. Before that, Lange was a popular regular on The Howard Stern Show for nine years. His memoir, Too Fat to Fish, became a New York Times best seller.
Artie Lange gained a reputation as a class clown in school and performed his first stand-up routine when 19. He got his start in the comedy clubs of New York City where he helped create Live on Tape, the popular sketch comedy group, and wrote and performed with troupes such as Midnight Madness and The Improvables.
His breakout work with Live on Tape landed him his debut television role as one of the original series regulars on Fox’s Mad TV.
Film credits include: Dirty Work cast opposite Norm MacDonald, The Bachelor with Chris O’Donnell and Renée Zellweger, Lost and Found with David Spade, Kinka Usher’s Mystery Men and The Fourth Floor with Juliette Lewis and William Hurt. Lange also starred, co-wrote and produced Beer League, a film that Variety said “offers a trip back in time to a pre-PC and feminist era when men were sexist Neanderthals; women supported them from the sidelines and the guy with the biggest mouth scored.”
Tickets to Artie Lange are $32.50, $42.50, $52.50 and $65 and may be purchased online at TheMahaffey.com, charge by phone at (727) 893-7832 or in person at The Mahaffey Theater Box Office. The Mahaffey Box Office is open 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday or at least 90 minutes prior to any ticketed event. There are no added ticketing charges ever on tickets purchased directly from The Mahaffey Theater.
