Famous-Faced, Funny Female Returns to Atlanta
We’re thrilled to welcome the incredibly funny Caroline Rhea, stand-up comedian and actress, back to The Punchline stage. In addition to her latest stint as host of the NBC reality show "The Biggest Loser," Caroline’s extensive television credits include shows like HBO’s "Curb Your Enthusiasm," written by Seinfeld’s Larry David, "The Drew Carey Show," where she guest-starred as Drew’s girlfriend, and "Hollywood Squares," where she appeared regularly for three years. Rhea co-starred in the critcally acclaimed film "Man on the Moon," acting beside her renowned colleague and fellow Canadian Jim Carrey. A regular guest host for "The Rosie O’Donnell Show," Caroline’s witty and excitable personlaity shone through and eventually led to her own syndicated talk show "The Caroline Rhea Show." VH-1 asked Rhea to host her own series, "Fool for Love," and Lifetime got her laugh-inducing antics to lead their "The Great Lifetime Makeover." Don’t be a loser; make your reservations now to see this very funny comedian. She’s definitely a winner!
