Brad Garrett (the Emmy Award-winning brother on Everybody Loves Raymond) will star in an evening of laughter and relaxation on Thursday, May 17, at The Ridgefield Playhouse at 8 p.m. Comedian Garrett will deliver a no-holds barred show (which contains adult themed R-rated material and is not suited for minors or more sensitive adults). Comedian/actor Brad Garrett played the award-winning role of Ray Romano’s brother on “Everybody Loves Raymond”. To quote Garrett, he is passionate about “offending America one city at a time”.
The first grand champion winner in the comedy category of Star Search, Brad Garrett got his big break on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and went on to open for stars such as Liza Minnelli, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Julio Iglesias. Featured guest is Comedy Central star Bonnie McFarlane. Media sponsor is i95fm – The Home of Rock ‘n’ Roll. An AllShows.com VIP Party Pass ($25 addt'l per person) is available for this show and includes a cocktail party 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. with open bar, hors-d’oeuvre from Southwest Café and priority parking. Southwest Café (109 Danbury Rd., Ridgefield) will be offering a free margarita with dinner the night of the show when tickets to Brad Garrett are shown.
Commenting on why a comedy show at the Playhouse is so good for the soul, Playhouse patron Jane Scott explained: “We like a comedy show because it is a real escape from all of life's events. It’s a pure night of mindless relaxation. The comedians take common daily things we all go through and laugh about it, so they make it seem like we all go through all these quirky things no matter who we are or what our background is. Just a night to relax and laugh.”
