Three-time Emmy Award-winner Louie Anderson is returning to Raue Center’s Stage in 2018! Anderson, who was named one of the “100 greatest stand-up comedians of all time” by Comedy Central, is one of the country’s most recognized and adored comics. Anderson began his stand-up comedy career in his native Minneapolis, where he was dared by friends to perform onstage at a comedy club. His big break came in 1984 when he appeared on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.” Carson was so impressed with Anderson that he called him out for a rare and coveted “second bow.” This performance skyrocketed Anderson to fame. A multi-talented performer, Anderson has worked in television and movies in addition to his live stand-up shows. He has starred in his own CBS sitcom, “The Louie Show,” as well as five comedy specials for HBO and Showtime. Anderson has also guest-starred in popular sitcoms including “Scrubs” and “Grace Under Fire,” and has also had memorable featured roles in films such as “Coming to America” opposite Eddie Murphy. The multi-talented comedian and actor is also the creator and producer of the two-time Emmy Award-winning animated FOX series “Life With Louie.” He currently appears on the FX comedy “Baskets” by Louie CK and Zach Galifinakis, for which he won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series in 2016!
