The Palm Cabaret and Bar is excited to announce the arrival of comedian Tony Tripoli, Joan Rivers’ head comedy writer, for his ‘Dirty, Sexy, Funny!’ one man show, December 20 through January 31.

Tony 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.

He followed that up with a stint as a Chippendale, and, in a real moment of pride, sang Cole Porter songs for the American Plumber’s Association, on stage with a dozen toilets.

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 is thrilled to be the first openly gay comic to open for Joan Rivers, and hopes you’ll come see them in action! You can enjoy his solo stand-up “Tony Tripoli: Dirty, Sexy, FUNNY” all over L.A., on gay cruises, in Provincetown, and now, at The Palm Cabaret and Bar in Puerto Vallarta!

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 starting two hours before showtime each evening.
