If you go ...
What: Gabriel Rutledge
When: Saturday, Dec. 3, 8 p.m.
Where: Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
Standup comedian and Washington native Gabriel Rutledge heads to Hard Rock Hotel and Casino following a two-week stint in his home state.
Known for his quick thinking and delivering jokes at a fast pace, Rutledge has notched the prestigious Seattle International Comedy Competition and made appearances on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and Nickelodeon’s “Nickmom Night Out,” in addition to Comedy.TV and Comics Unleashed.
“Gabriel has performed at the HBO/TBS Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, and the Great American Comedy Festival held in Johnny Carson’s home town of Norfolk, Nebraska,” states the comedian’s online biography.
Rutledge also frequents “The Bob and Tom Show,” and has released three albums, including “Sometimes Laughter Hurts” and “Breeder.”
The comedian is also an author — his book, “Happiness Isn’t Funny,” was published in 2014.
“Equal parts incisive and intimate, Rutledge relates — in hilarious detail — the challenges and struggles of raising a family and pursuing a comedy career, all while battling the horrors of the comedy condo, the slow death of performing to a captive nursing home audience, and the nightmare of air travel with a fellow comedian who just can’t pick up on social cues,” states the book preview.
Tickets for his South Shore standup gig are available for $15 online at http://www.hardrockcasinolaketahoe.com.
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is located at 50 U.S. 50 in Stateline.
