Comix At Foxwoods Welcomes Louis Katz Tonight
Comedy extraordinaire, Louis Katz, will take over the stand-up duties tonight, Feb. 6 and Friday, Feb. 7 for 8 p.m. performances. Katz will take the stage each night at 8 p.m. before Hannibal Buress arrives for a special doubleheader on Saturday, Feb. 8 for 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. shows.
Hailed by the New York Times as a man whose comedic presence lands him squarely between "cerebral and swagger," Buress was a former staff writer for both Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. The co-host of Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show, he was the 2012 winner for Comedy Central's "Best Club Comic," and recently signed a deal with the network that will see him headline his own comedy tour, debut a new one-hour special, and become a series regular on the upcoming show, Broad City. He has also guest-starred on Fox's The Mindy Project, and appears as a regular "expert" on FX's Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. His debut comedy CD, "My Name Is Hannibal" (2010) and his Comedy Central one-hour special, Animal Furnace (2012), were both lavished with praise - each making multiple "Top 10" lists.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, the comedy career of Louis Katz began at the early age of 9, when as part of a school project he submitted several jokes to The Tonight Show - two of which were read on air by Johnny Carson. Now a professional comedian himself, Katz has performed stand-up on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, Jamie Foxx's America's Funniest Comics, HBO's Down and Dirty with Jim Norton and HBO Canada's Funny as Hell.
