Comedian Tony Tripoli Gets "Dirty, Sexy, Funny!" at The Palm
Published Mar 13, 2013, 12:31pm -
The Palm Cabaret and Bar is excited to announce the arrival of comedian Tony Tripoli, Joan Rivers’ head comedy writer, for 4 nights of his ‘Dirty, Sexy, Funny!’ one man show, March 15, 17, 22 & 24. Tripoli grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, and moved to Los Angeles in 1989, to attend the acclaimed American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Immediately upon graduation, he put his incredibly prestigious and expensive degree to use by moving to Japan to work for Tokyo Disneyland. You can imagine how thrilled his Mom was.
He followed that up with a stint as a Chippendale (yeah, that’s right…. the strippers), and, in a real moment of pride, sang Cole Porter songs for the American Plumber’s Association, on stage with a dozen toilets. He has played single-dimensional gay guys on such hit TV shows as “Fashion House” with Bo Derek and Morgan Fairchild and “Two and a Half Men” with Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, and that half-man…
Yes, he was also on “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” as well, but, it’s best not to bring that up…
Tripoli writes hilarious one-liners for Joan Rivers, which she uses in her act, on her reality show, and on “Fashion Police” at E!. He knows he should be troubled that all his jokes make sense coming out of the mouth of a 77 year old Jewish lady, but, as he says, ‘screw it, she’s a legend’. He was also a staff writer on STYLE network’s hit show, “The Dish”, hosted by Danielle Fishel.
Advance reservations are highly recommended. Tickets for ‘Tony Tripoli: Dirty, Sexy, Funny!’ are 150 pesos (plus two drinks minimum) and may be purchased online at www.ThePalmPV.com or at the door starting 2 hours before showtime each evening.
The Palm is non-smoking (a patio is provided for smokers) and is located at Olas Altas 508 in Emiliano Zapata.
