Tracy Morgan, Wanda Sykes usher in a fall of comedy in Stamford

|

If you like comedy, you will have plenty of opportunities this fall to get your fill at the Palace Theatre in Stamford. Today begins ticket sales for Stamford Center for the Arts members for Tracy Morgan (Sept. 26),  Artie Lange (Oct. 19) and Paul Reiser (Nov. 2). The general public has to wait until July 10 to pluck them up (though you can become a member, today, too).

Morgan, who spent seven seasons on “Saturday Night Live,” creating such characters as “Astronaut Jones,” and “Dominican Lou,” as well as performing impressions of a diverse cast of celebrities and famous personalities, including Maya Angelou, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Maxine Waters. He also was nominated for an Emmy for his role as Tracy Jordan on NBC’s sitcom “30 Rock,” which ran from 2006 to earlier this year.

Tickets are $27.50 to $67.50. This show is open to those 18 and older.

Lange, who had his television debut with Fox’s “MADtv,” has built up a career as a comedian, actor, radio personality and writer. He appeared on “The Howard Stern Show” for nearly a decade and currently hosts his eponymous show. He has starred in a number of feature films, too, including “The Bachelor,” “Elf (he’s the department store Santa),” “Old School,” and “Dirty Work.” His book “Too Fat to Fish” came out in 2008.

Tickets are $37.50 to $65.  As with Morgan’s show, the show is open to those 18 and older.

Reiser will be in Stamford in support of Mikey’s Way Foundation. Reiser’s performance is part of a fundraising evening to raise funds for children with cancer. Reiser is perhaps best known for his role on the sitcom “Mad About You,” which ran on NBC from 1992 to 1999. But before he found TV stardom, he was a sought-after stand-up comic. Chris Monty will open.

Tickets are $50 to $75.

This trio of comics follows the news that Wanda Sykes also will be at the Palace this fall. She is set to perform on Sept. 20. Tickets are currently available to members and nonmembers. For more information, check out the Palace Theatre’s schedule.
