Rancho Cucamonga Community & Arts Foundation presents "Unassisted Living" with Fritz Coleman
Saturday, January 6, 2024 at 7:30 p.m.
TICKETS: $45, $35, $30
In his latest solo comedy show Unassisted Living, Fritz Coleman reminds audiences why he’s been welcome in people’s homes for nearly four decades, whether as a legendary Los Angeles weatherman, or as a tireless comic always developing new material for his act. “This one is about getting older,” says Coleman, “and as always, it’s just the truth of my life lately.”
As a young-ish 70-something who has dealt with ageing in the time of Obamacare, big pharma and the pandemic, Coleman was eager to get back to the “regular” comedy routine after two-years of pandemic-era entertainment and closed comedy clubs.
In his newest show, about dealing with aging in the era of social distancing and social media, Coleman delights in serving his loyal demographic in their current frame of mind. It’s the same generation of comedy fans who grew up with the hilarious extended riffs of George Carlin, Robert Klein, and Richard Pryor – but Coleman delivers with a gentle touch developed over years of working on local television news. “Because of the way it was when I was on TV in the 70s and 80s, I’ve always worked very clean,” says Coleman. “You had to have a squeaky-clean act to get on ‘The Tonight Show.’ That’s perfect for my audience because they don’t want to be assaulted by comedy, or feel uncomfortable with it.”
Fritz Coleman, a strong supporter of the arts, and a Spotlight Donor for RCCAAF, will be performing his newest show as a benefit for the Rancho Cucamonga Community & Arts Foundation, to help support arts programs in Rancho Cucamonga. Tickets start at $30 and are available at the Lewis Family Playhouse Box Office. For more information about the Rancho Cucamonga Community & Arts Foundation visit www.RCCAAF.org.
Every person, regardless of age, needs a ticket to attend a performance at the Lewis Family Playhouse. Children must be able to sit independently in their own seat for the duration of the show. Babes in arms are not permitted.
