Lenny Clarke Set to Visit Comix At Foxwoods Beginning March 28

Best known for both his role as Uncle Teddy on FX's hit series, "Rescue Me," and his thick Boston accent, Lenny Clarke will visit the Comix At Foxwoods stage for four shows this March with performances Thursday, Mar. 28 at 8 p.m. and Friday, Mar. 29 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Mar. 30 at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. The final show will be one not for the faint of heart or easily offended, as fans will be welcomed to witness a "Nasty Show with Lenny Clarke." Lines will be crossed and common decency will be left at the door during this final uproarious performance.

Tickets are on sale now and are $25 for general advance admission ($35 the day of), while VIP advance admission tickets are $50 ($60 the day of). A two-drink minimum applies to all tickets. The show is 21+ and is for mature audiences only.

Clarke's status as the most famous "saloon comic" in Boston during the 1980s was captured in the 2006 documentary, "When Standup Stood Out," which details his early career and affiliations with other Boston comics, including good friends Steven Wright and Denis Leary. In 1980, he wrote and starred in a local television show, "Lenny Clarke's Late Show," featuring Wright and Leary, with fellow Boston comic, and roommate, Martin Olson. He has also starred in his own sitcom, "Lenny," and appeared in "Contest Searchlight," "The Job," "The John Larroquette Show" and "It's All Relative," and can be seen in such films as "Monument Ave.," "Fever Pitch" and "Southie."

Clarke is also very involved with the Boston sports scene, appearing alongside ESPN columnist Bill Simmons in ESPN's 30 for 30, "4 Days in October," as a narrator giving insight on the 2004 ALCS comeback by the Red Sox against the Yankees. He is also an occasional guest on WEEI radio in Boston, and has been known to show his support for various Boston politicians over the years.

Tickets are available online at www.comixatfoxwoods.com; by calling the Foxwoods Box Office at 800-200-2882; or in person at the Comix, Fox Theater or MGM Grand Theater Box Offices.
