Multi-talented comedian, actor, television writer, author and musician Paul Reiser brings his “The Big Font Tour” to Hoover Auditorium for a night of laughs Saturday, Aug. 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Throughout his prolific career, he has a long list of successful television shows, both in front and behind the camera. The multi-faceted actor first starred with Helen Hunt in the Emmy, Peabody and Golden Globe-winning “Mad About You” in 1992.
Reiser currently stars in Netflix’s mega hit “Stranger Things” — the company’s biggest series of all time — where he plays Dr. Sam Owens. He’s also in the Hulu comedy “Reboot” and joined season three of “The Boys” on Prime Video. Reiser starred with Michael Douglas in the award-winning Netflix comedy “The Kominsky Method” that ended a three-year run in 2021.
On the big screen, the veteran actor has garnered praise for notable performances in films such as “Diner,” “Bye Bye Love,” “Aliens,” “One Night at McCool’s,” two “Beverly Hills Cop” movies and “The Thing about My Folks,” which Reiser wrote for his co-star Peter Falk.
Reiser co-created and co-produced “There’s Johnny!,” a seven-episode series which originally streamed on Hulu and now streams on Peacock. The show, a fictional story set behind-the-scenes of Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show” circa 1972, was co-created with filmmaker David Steven Simon and co-produced with director David Gordon Green in conjunction with The Carson Company.
Reiser’s first book, Couplehood, sold over 2 million copies and reached the No. 1 spot on The New York Times bestsellers list. His subsequent books, Babyhood and Familyhood, were best sellers as well.
Voted by Comedy Central as one of the Top 100 Comedians of All Time, Reiser regularly performs sold-out standup at venues nationwide.
