Affable everyman Drew Carey rose to national prominence as a standup comedian before moving into television with his self-titled sitcom and hilarious improv-comedy showcase Whose Line Is It Anyway? Now the host of The Price Is Right, Carey returns to his roots on stage, teaming up for a national tour with the daring Internet comedy troupe The Midnight Show. The high-profile alliance presents a fast-paced evening of punky, silly sketches spiced with a peppering of standup to help audiences empty out internal buildups of excess laughs.
Profiled on Attack of the Show, The Midnight Show caught the attention of Comedy Central with "Drive Recklessly," their gripping PSA on some of the unexpected dangers of the road. Other fan-favorite videos include "Twilight with Cheeseburgers" and "School of French Kissing for Dogs," both of which appear as exclusives on their supporting website, Funny or Die. Past members have gone on to careers on both sides of SNL's cameras, and the troupe has worked with such laughter luminaries as Fred Willard, Andy Richter, Paul F. Tompkins, and Bob Odenkirk.
