The Newport Summer Concert Series is back with it's 14th year of comedy shows. They have had great success over the years showcasing the Nation's best comedians from Television, the silver screen and stage. This year proves to be no different. Just check out the first two shows announced. Tickets go on sale Friday May 2nd. Here is what we have in store for you...
The Mattie Volkswagen Audi Newport Summer Comedy Series is thrilled to announce that ARTIE LANGE and NICK SWARDSON, will be making their Newport Yachting Center debuts this summer.
Lange, best known as a beloved regular on The Howard Stern Show for five years, will bring his popular and outrageous standup show to the Newport waterfront on Saturday evening, July 26th. Artie hosts his own radio show also seen on Direct TV, The Artie Lange Show. His memoir, Too Fat To Fish, became a New York Times bestseller.
Every so often a comedian comes along who emerges as a triple threat: comedian, actor and writer/producer. That triple threat is Nick Swardson, who takes center stage at the Newport Summer Comedy Series, on Friday evening, August 8th. Nick is best known for his recurring role as Terry Bernadino in the comedy series Reno 911!, which airs weeknights on Comedy Central at 6:30 PM and movie roles in Adam Sandler films including That’s My Boy and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Last year he performed in Grown Ups 2, the sequel to the hit film Grown Ups, in which Nick also appeared.
A WORD FROM THE VENUE:
“Artie Lange is one of the most sought after live comedians of the business and we have been trying to bring him to Newport for the past five years, but the dates never worked out. Now we have him on July 26th for what promises to be an absolutely hilarious show, says Newport Summer Comedy Series president Joe Rocco. “Adding Nick Swardson was a nice suprise. He is extremely popular with the under 40 crowd, not to mention very very funny.”
Tickets for Artie Lange on July 26th and Nick Swardson on August 8th go on sale this Friday, May 2nd at
Also performing in the 14th annual comedy series at the Newport Yachting Center is Bill Cosby, Amy
