Nick Di Paolo – one of the sharpest minds (and tongues) in stand-up comedy over the past 20 years, is coming to the Shubert for one big night of comedy with “The Nick is Right Tour.” Prepare for a night of hilarious, brutally honest, unapologetic comedy!
While 95% of comedians are liberal, Nick leans the other way and isn’t afraid to call it as he sees it. His strong political opinions and razor wit make him a perfect fit for talk radio. He currently hosts “The Nick Di Paolo Show” on SiriusXM and “The Nick Di Paolo Podcast.”
Nick has performed on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Conan O’Brien. He was twice nominated for an Emmy for his writing on HBO’s “The Chris Rock Show”. He has also had three half hour standup specials on Comedy Central, a Showtime special “Raw Nerve”, a self released special “Another Senseless Killing” and most recently “Inflammatory”. He was one of the stars on “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and a stand out on many Comedy Central Roasts.
Not limited to stand-up, radio and writing, he has had acting roles on FX’s “Louie”, “Inside Amy Schumer”, “The Sopranos”, “Cop Show”, and the critically acclaimed “Horace and Pete” as well as many other sitcoms.

Shubert Theatre247 College Street, New HavenThe Shubert Theatre had its genesis in the New Theatre, an “art” playhouse located on Central Park West that was devoted to serious repertory drama. Although the project was a critical and commercial flop, the New Theatre Group, which included Lee Shubert, leased a plot of land between 44th and 45th street to construct a new venue. The plan was abandoned, but Lee Shubert and Winthrop Ames, a former New Theatre partner, acquired a lease for the site, and built two adjoining playhouses there. Lee and J.J. operated the larger of the two auditoriums, which they named the Sam S. Shubert Memorial Theatre to commemorate their brother, who had died in May 1905. Ames managed the smaller Booth Theatre.
