Comedic Madness w/ Carl Labove

Carl LaBove is an alum of The Outlaws of Comedy, the comics’ group that included Sam Kinison that wreaked havoc throughout clubs during the ‘80’s. And while his work still has that edge to it, there’s a method behind the comedic madness.

LaBove has performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” had guest spots on “Seinfeld,” and “Roseanne,” and had roles in “Parenthood,” and “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.” He was also in the Pauly Shore movie “Pauly is Dead,” where he played Pauly Shore’s insincere agent.

LaBove has performed with greats Robin Williams and Damon Wayans, be he credits Red Skelton for “quote unquote” helping him out the most. “I look back a lot, when I was younger, (Red) Skelton came on every Sunday night. I watched with my mom, dad, brother, grandparents, and was amazed that he made all of us laugh. The fact we were all generations apart,” said LaBove. These Sunday-night shows were a foundation or building block for what LaBove does today.

Carl has a show here at Bridge Street Live. Thursday, July 21st @ 8pm. Tickets!
