Las Vegas—Writer, producer, actor and host Tom Arnold returns to his roots as a stand-up comic, performing at The Orleans Showroom February 19 and 20, each evening at 8 p.m.
In his stand-up act Arnold pokes fun at his Midwest past, marital follies and absurd Hollywood stories. He began his career in comedy at the University of Iowa before moving to Minneapolis where he won the Minneapolis Comedy Competition in 1988. He then moved to Los Angeles to write for the successful television series Roseanne, where he went on to serve as executive producer. He appeared in his own HBO special, Tom Arnold: The Naked Truth, and wrote, produced and started in his own television series’ The Jackie Thomas Show, Tom and The Tom Show.
Recipient of a Peabody Award and Golden Globe Award, Arnold has appeared as the resident comic relief character in films including Nine Months, True Lies, Hero and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. In the upcoming feature, Grassroots, Arnold stars along side Cobie Smulders, Lauren Ambrose, Joel David Moore and Jason Biggs.
While known for his hilarious and wild characters, Arnold has also received critical praise for several mature and dramatic roles in films, including Gardens of the Night, The Great Buck Howard, Good Dick, The Year of Getting to Know Us and Happy Endings.
On the Fox Sports Network, Arnold hosted the Best Damn Sports Show Period and recently returned to the network as both producer and host of the kids’ baseball show Kid Pitch. He hosts the popular “Laughing With The Stars” weekly comedy show at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood featuring supporting acts ranging from rising young comics to all-time favorites.
