RAHWAY – Comedic icon Joan Rivers will take the stage at the Union County Performing Arts Center for one night only on Friday, Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. Rivers will bring her unique sense of humor and tenacity to her stand-up show in the 1300-seat landmark theatre located in the heart of the emergent Rahway Arts District. The evening’s performance is not suitable for minors or sensitive individuals.
Described as a post-menopausal Lenny Bruce, Joan Rivers delivers a vulgar, politically incorrect evening of stand-up comedy. One of the hardest working women in show business, she is a best-selling author, Tony-nominated actress, playwright, screenwriter, motion picture director, Emmy Award-winning television talk-show host, jewelry designer, business woman and mother to “what’s-her-name” Melissa.
She is on the board of God’s Love We Deliver, National Chairwoman of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and gives lectures around the world on suicide prevention and survival. With her trademark mix of outspoken wit, savvy and compassion, she continues to be one of America’s most admired first ladies of comedy.
Rivers’ career has spanned more than four decades in the entertainment industry and beyond. But Rivers got her break in show business as a comedian, and it’s as a comedian that she still works most. On Saturday, Nov. 12, Rivers will present an evening of her newest and most outrageous riffs on Hollywood, pop culture, celebrities, reality TV and award show fashion.
Tickets are available at the UCPAC Box Office at 1-732-499-8226 or online at www.ucpac.org. The UCPAC Box Office, located at 1601 Irving Street, Rahway, is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
