Iconic comedian Louie Anderson, the three-time Emmy Award winner, is one of the country’s most recognized and adored comics named by Comedy Central as ‘One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time.’
His career has spanned more than 30 years. He is a best-selling author, star of his own stand-up specials and sitcoms and he continues to tour the country performing to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.
In 2016 Anderson was cast to co-star along with Zach Galifianakis and Martha Kelly in the hit FX comedy series Baskets. Anderson plays the extraordinary role of Christine, the matriarch of the Baskets clan. He based the character on his mother and his five sisters who were all a major presence in his life. Anderson won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Christine Baskets in 2016.
Johnny Carson, the comedy icon for generations of rising stars, invited Louie to make his national television debut on the ‘The Tonight Show’ in 1984, and the rest is history. Leno, Letterman, ‘The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,’ ‘Comic Relief’ and Showtime, HBO and CMT specials followed, including hosting the legendary game show, Family Feud, making Louie a household name and opening doors for him as an actor.
He has guest starred in sitcoms like ‘Grace Under Fire’ and dramas like ‘Touched by an Angel’ and ‘Chicago Hope,’ and he has had memorable featured roles in film comedies like ‘Coming to America,’ opposite of Eddie Murphy, and the classic ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.’ In 2013, he took a dive on the ABC reality series, ‘Splash’ where he conquered his own fears while becoming an inspiration of hope. His standup Special, ‘Big Baby Boomer’ premiered on CMT, in 2013.
When not in production, Louie continues to tour, traveling the States doing what Louie loves to do, Stand-Up Comedy. Louie again delivers to his fans his inimitable brand of humor and warmth. This is an all-ages show; those under 21 must be accompanied by an adult.
