Joel McHale
May 19th
The Long Center

     Actor and comedian Joel McHale will stop at The Long Center for a one-night stand-up comedy performance on Saturday, May 19th, starting at 8 p.m.  Tickets will go on sale to the public this Thursday, April 12th.
     One of Hollywood's fastest rising stars, McHale's quick wit and sharp comedic timing is best witnessed live.  The Long Center performance will combine the stand-up comedian and actor's snarky views on pop culture - honed by hosting E!'s wildly popular show "The Soup" - with tales from the set of his NBC Thursday-night comedy "Community" and stories of the day-to-day hilarity of being a husband and father.
     McHale recently appeared in the films What's Your Number?, opposite Anna Faris, and The Big Year with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson.  He also starred opposite Matt Damon in The Informant and had roles in Spider-Man II, Lords of Dogtown and locally-filmed favorite Spy Kids: All the Time in the World alongside Jessica Alba and Jeremy Piven.
      Born in Rome and raised in Seattle, Washington, McHale was a History major at the University of Washington - where he also was a member of their championship football team.  He turned to comedy after completing his Master's of Fine Arts from U.W.'s Actor's Training Program.  He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons.
     Tickets for the Austin performance start at $39 and will be available at The Long Center's 3M Box Office - located at 701 West Riverside Drive at South First Street - by phone at (512) 474-LONG (5664) and online at www.TheLongCenter.org.
