(SOUTH EGREMONT, Mass.) – Comedian and actress Lynne Koplitz, a star of Comedy Central, will bring her raucous, live stand-up to the Barn at Egremont Inn on Friday, July 22, for two shows at 7:30pm and 9:30pm. Joining Koplitz are rising star Will Garré and show host Justin Leveille, a comic and comedy filmmaker.
Koplitz works in TV, film, theater, and comedy clubs. She toured with Jenny McCarthy’s “Dirty Sexy Funny” for several years. Her stand-up act has been featured on Comedy Central. She performed live at the Montreal Comedy Festival and in Chris Rock’s movie, “Top Five.”
Most recently, Koplitz made a guest appearance on Louie CK’s amazing and underrated Internet-only series, “Horace and Pete,” along with cast members Steve Buscemi, Jessica Lange, Alan Alda and Edie Falco.
Koplitz earned a BA in theatre arts from Troy State University and performed for a regional theater group in Knoxville, Tenn., before moving to New York City. Lynne has lived in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village with her dog, Aldo, for more years than she will admit. Her self-deprecating comedy draws from her life experience, and her act is often reminiscent of her long-time mentor and friend, Joan Rivers.
The Barn at Egremont Village Inn offers year-round libations, food, and live music in the Berkshires Wednesdays through Sundays. As a community resource the barn will be available to Berkshire County residents who want to use the space to teach classes, hold meetings, or throw an event during the day.
