Known for his edgy and envelope-shoving comedy, Denis Leary has carved out an impressive career during more than two decades in show business, with roles in films such as Suicide Kings, The Thomas Crown Affair, and Ice Age, and several hit comedy albums.

Leary again returns to the stand-up stage alongside fellow comedians and Rescue Me cast members Lenny Clarke and Adam Ferrara for the "Rescue Me Comedy Tour 2".
