Randy Rainbow: The Pink Glasses Tour

America’s favorite musical satirist, Randy Rainbow, is taking his act on the road! On The Pink Glasses Tour, the two-time Emmy-nominated singer, writer, and comedian will take on the hottest topics and skewer politicos of the day as only he can, as he brings his most viral video song parodies to life onstage. Featuring live accompaniment by some of Broadway’s finest musicians, the show will also include personal stories, an audience Q&A, and brand new original songs written by Rainbow with Marc Shaiman (HairsprayMary Poppins Returns) and Alan Menken (Little Shop of HorrorsBeauty and the Beast). 

Brian Regan

The Brian Regan live experience proves hilarious, yet intimate for everyone in the crowd, even at large venues. Stand-up comedian Brian Regan entertains audiences with self-deprecating humor and minimal off-color jokes. He enjoys shedding light on the absurdities of everyday situations, such as preparing Pop Tarts for breakfast. He utilizes ample physical comedy by entertaining fans with unusual facial expressions. He balances this emphasis on the physical out with sophisticated writing. No two shows are exactly alike; Regan regularly incorporates new jokes, many inspired by the latest foibles in politics. Rather than focus exclusively on well-known routines, he uses live shows as an opportunity to test out new jokes and physical gags, thereby keeping his material fresh for both new and longtime fans. Sometimes, however, he includes better-known bits upon fan request, often as part of his encore. His show follows no discernible plot, but transitions from one topic to the next make sense and feel natural. With perfect timing, fresh material and relatable subjects, Regan’s performances are sure to entertain audiences of all ages.
