Drew Carey stand-up date announced for River Rock

Comedian, actor and producer Drew Carey is coming to Richmond for a stand-up comedy show at River Rock Show Theatre.

Tickets went on sale Thursday for his April 19, 2013 show.

Carey is best known for his sitcom The Drew Carey Show and playing host to the improve sketch show Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Carey was performing at the Cleveland Comedy Club in 1986 when two years later, he got his big break competing on the syndicated TV show Star Search. That led to other TV appearances before he landed his own sitcom in 1995. The Drew Carey Show enjoyed a successful nine-season run on ABC.

Three years into his sitcom, he had a second job: as host and producer of Whose Line. That show ran for eight seasons on ABC.

In recent years, Carey has hosted CBS’s long-running daytime gameshow The Price Is Right, succeeding longtime host Bob Barker in 2007.

Tickets, $59.50 to $69.50, at ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000.
