RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Ridgefield Playhouse and Clark Construction Comedy Series presents an outrageous night of comedy with one of the hottest rising comedy stars, Bridget Everett at 8 p.m. Sunday.
The 6-foot-tall, classically trained singer has been described as “A Bette Midler 2.0, vamping from tender to outrageous” by The Villager and “one of the Funniest People in New York” by Time Out. She’s been featured on her best friend Amy Schumer’s hit Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer and also was featured in Schumer’s hit film Trainwreck.
Her cult-like following has led to sold out shows across the country. Her show is part raunchy storytelling, part vaudevillian act, mixed with hilarious, filthy – but beautifully sung – vocals.
Everett has been embraced by both Broadway and Hollywood. In 2013, she performed at Carnegie Hall with Broadway icon Patti LuPone. Jonah Hill has called her shows “mind blowing” and Sarah Jessica Parker declared her an “extraordinary talent!” In 2014, Everett began performing her uproarious, expletive-laden, boob-brandishing show Rock Bottom at Joe’s Pub in Manhattan.
Her raucous, raunchy and hilarious show is as heartfelt as it is unpredictable as she belts out beautiful songs that will make you laugh, cry and sometimes cringe.
The show contains mature content and is suitable for audiences 18 and older.
For tickets ($30), call the box office at 203-438-5795, or visit ridgefieldplayhouse.org. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a nonprofit performing arts center at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street in Ridgefield.
