The DisMANtled Comedy Tour comes to Reno

Crawl into the mind of men, and return with a smile. Join a married man (Justin Rupple, your host - from Dana Carvey’s First Impressions and the feature film starring Liam Neeson - Operation Chromite), a gay man (Joe Dosch - from Comedy Central Roast Battle), a man with a live-in girlfriend (Alex Mandelberg - who’s voice has graced 100s of films and TV shows), and a perpetually single man (Rev. Mitcz - who’s 3rd comedy special The Importance of Self-Loathing was just released) and as they return to Reno for an encore performance of the DisMANtled Comedy Tour. A solid 90-minute comedy show hosted by Justin Rupple, with four fantastic comedians (from networks like HBO, CBS, Bravo, Comedy Central, Lifetime, FX, and more) with their own unique point of view, followed by an audience-written Q&A session.

Artist Reception: Sarah Lillegard

Tracing the lines of fatigue— the dip of shoulders, oxen straining a yoke, the coil of a dropped rope— "Shoulder Lines Sinking" explores descending forms and shapes of exhaustion through soft sculpture and fiber installations.

Comedian Author Columnist and Steve Hofstetter is Live in Reno

SPECIAL EVENT Author, columnist, and comedian Steve Hofstetter is often called the hardest working man in show-business. With all due respect to the late James Brown. Hofstetter's national TV debut came on ESPN's Quite Frankly, where Stephen A. Smith yelled at him for three minutes. Hofstetter has also appeared on CBS' "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson", Showtime's "White Boyz in the Hood", VH1's "Countdown", Sundance's "On the Road in America", and ABC's "Barbara Walter's Special", where he thankfully did not cry. He is the host and executive producer of "Laughs" on Fox networks, where he only cries occasionally. One of the top booked acts on the college circuit, the original writer for collegehumor.com has also released six albums. Hofstetter has written humor columns for the New York Times, SportsIllustrated.com, and NHL.com, where he publicly admitted to being a Ranger fan. After hosting Four Quotas on Sirius Satellite Radio for two seasons, Hofstetter moved to broadcast radio, and his Sports Minute (Or So) was syndicated on over 170 stations and in over 30 newspapers. Hofstetter's second live comedy album ("Cure For the Cable Guy") reached #20 on Billboard's comedy charts. His third album ("Dark Side of the Room") was the first ever pay-what-you-want" comedy album, since people were going to steal it anyway. His fourth album consisted of an hour of 100% ad-libbed material, which is, frankly, nuts. And his fifth album hit #1 on iTunes' comedy charts, which is also a bit nuts. Hofstetter's brutal tour schedule consists of over 100 colleges and dozens of clubs every year, and is fueled by an immense online popularity, tons of press, and a Prius with great gas mileage. He reached 200,000 friends on Facebook and 400,000 more on MySpace, and high shelves in grocery stores. While Hofstetter's live shows are routinely sold out, he is best known for his writing, first published at age 15, mainly to impress girls. At 18, he co-founded "Sports Jerk of the Week", an irreverent website featured by press like USA Today's Baseball Weekly, Sports Illustrated and CNN. And at 20, Hofstetter took a year off of school to head up web content for the New York Yankees. The Yankees won the World Series that year, which would have been wonderful if they hadn't beaten Hofstetter's Mets. Yes, he's also a Mets fan. Poor kid. Reno Tahoe Comedy offers a full bar with no drink minimum and nightly drink specials in a beautiful, smoke free theater setting. Please call 775-322-LAFF now to book your group or corporate event. Hosting all shows is comedian Camilla Cleese. Comedians are subject to change. No refunds. Shows may contain adult content. Suggested age 17 and over.
