Local funnyman, Nick DiPaolo, is set to return to Comix At Foxwoods this April after a two year hiatus, having last performed there in May 2011 when he shot his critically acclaimed hour-long special, "Raw Nerve" for Showtime. DiPaolo's hilarious act will be featured on Thursday, Apr. 18 at 8 p.m., Friday, Apr. 19 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Apr. 20 at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and are $25 for general advance admission ($35 the day of), while VIP advance admission tickets are $50 ($60 the day of). A two-drink minimum applies to all tickets. The show is 21+ and is for mature audiences only.
Dubbed the 'comic's comic' by his contemporaries, DiPaolo's range has allowed him to perform on shows as tame as "The Tonight Show" and as edgy as HBO's "Young Comedians Special," "Late Night with David Letterman" and "Conan." His many credits include two Emmy nominations for his writing on "The Chris Rock Show" and starring on "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn."
The Boston-born DiPaolo has guest starred on multiple sitcoms, including FX's "Louie" and HBO's "The Sopranos,'" and appeared in films such as "Beer League." His strong political opinions have been heard on FNC's "Hannity," "Red Eye" and "Fox and Friends," and CNN's "Joy Behar," while his razor wit also allows him to sub for Dennis Miller.
DiPaolo is a favorite on both "Howard Stern" and "Opie and Anthony," and has had three half-hour standup specials on Comedy Central, in addition to taking part in many of their infamous roasts. A critic for the Winnipeg Press said it best when he described him as "gentle as a starved wolverine and as predictable as a tipsy-hop through a minefield, Nick DiPaolo is an experience constrained only slightly by the demands of standup comedy."
