Friday, October 5th 7:30 pm at the Temple Theater      

            LUFKIN, TX. Laughter reigns when Paul Reiser takes the stage in Lufkin on Friday October 5th with an evening of world-class comedy. Comedian, movie star, TV star, author — all can be used to describe Reiser, yet sharing life’s experiences from his unique comic perspective in true stand-up style is a role he takes on with gusto. Come to the Temple Theater to share in the laughter on Friday, October 5th at 7:30 pm. Paul Reiser is presented by Angelina Arts Alliance, and tickets are $27-$35 ($45/Premium). All unsold tickets go on sale for half- price beginning one hour before performance time. Tickets sold subject to availability.

Tickets can be purchased at the box office, or by calling (936) 633-5454.

Reiser finds humor in the ordinary, day-to-day circumstances that force us to laugh at ourselves. He has taken his talent for finding humor in life and penned three top selling books. Couplehood, his first book, sold over two million copies and reached the number one spot on The New Your Times bestseller list. Naturally, there was a follow-up book, Babyhood, and most recently, the long-awaited Familyhood. Theatergoers will be treated to a chance to meet Paul in the lobby after the show. Limited copies of his books will be available for purchase which Paul will gladly sign for you. 

Funnyman, Pat Hazell, one of four original writers for NBC’s Seinfeld will open the evening of laughter.  Showtime declared Pat Hazell, “One of the Five Funniest People in America.” Pat currently tours staring in his own one-man stand-up comedy show The Wonder Bread Years.

The Temple Theater is located on the Angelina College campus in Lufkin. Paul Reiser is sponsored by A Friend of the Arts. Season Sponsors are Memorial Health System of East Texas and Brookshire Brothers Food & Pharmacy. To purchase tickets, come to the box office 11 to 5pm Monday – Friday, or call (936) 633-5454.
