RIDGEFIELD, CONN. -- Veteran comedienne Rita Rudner is bringing her Vegas-style act to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, Aug. 23.
Rudner shares her comedic life with sold-out audiences night after night, and her humor has taken her to Carnegie Hall, as well as to TV audiences through her HBO and PBS specials. For the past eight years, she has been the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best Comedian in Las Vegas.”
She has also penned two novels, "Tickled Pink" and "Turning the Tables," and her nonfiction titles "Naked Beneath My Clothes" and "Rita Rudner’s Guide to Men" have been best-sellers. Her latest work is a book of essays, "I Still Have It…I Just Can’t Remember Where I Put It."
Rudner's special guest is funny lady Christine O’Leary, who has performed and hosted many Ridgefield Playhouse shows with her own inimitable charm and wit.
Tickets to the 8 p.m. show are $58; call (203) 438-5795 or visit the box office at The Ridgefield Playhouse or order online.
Bissell House (on Main Street in Ridgefield) is offering Rudner fans a free glass of house wine or draft beer with dinner when tickets/stubs are presented the night of this event.
The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street.
