LIVE COMEDY FRIDAY 7/7

 

Show: David Alan Grier
Venue: Carolines on Broadway
Location:
1626 Broadway NYC
Time: 7:30 & 10pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

Countless theater, television, film and comedic endeavors have pushed David Alan Grier’s career to remarkable heights. His ability to excel across all mediums and contexts is a testament to his inherent sense of comic timing and creative drive. The three-time Tony and Grammy Award nominee was trained in Shakespeare at Yale, where he received an MFA from the Yale School of Drama. Grier has received many accolades and awards throughout his career, not the least of which was his inclusion on Comedy Central’s list of the “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.” Although Grier’s acting career is rooted in live theater, he has since also made his name in the world of television. He is currently shooting his third season of NBC comedy series The Carmichael Show, in which he plays Jerrod Carmichael’s say-anything contrarian father. Grier had the chance to return to the Broadway stage in NBC’s 2015 live television production of The Wiz Live! as the iconic role of the Cowardly Lion. The Wiz Live! generated NBC’s highest-rated night (excluding sports) in 11 years, and earned Grier two Image Awards and two Critics’ Choice Awards nominations. Grier has also recently wrapped a nationwide comedy tour, where he was joined by In Living Color co-star Tommy Davidson.
