Wednesday, April 30, 2014
The Mattie Volkswagen Audi Newport Summer Comedy Series is thrilled to announce that Artie Lange and Nick Swardsson will be making their Newport Yachting Center debuts this summer.
“Artie Lange is one of the most sought after live comedians of the business and we have been trying to bring him to Newport for the past five years, but the dates never worked out. Now we have him on July 26th for what promises to be an absolutely hilarious show, says Newport Summer Comedy Series president Joe Rocco. “Adding Nick Swardson was a nice suprise. He is extremely popular with the under 40 crowd, not to mention very very funny.”
Tickets for Artie Lange on July 26th and Nick Swardson on August 8th go on sale this Friday, May 2nd at noon.
Other performers in the 14th annual comedy series at the Newport Yachting Center include Bill Cosby, Amy Schumer, Mike Birbiglia and Jim Jefferies.
