The Ice House comedy club said it will proudly present actor, producer and actor Tom Arnold, who will perform for one show only, on Sunday, July 2, at 7:30 p.m.
Arnold, who has won awards including the Peabody Award and a Golden Globe, helped put Fox Sports Network on the map with his hosting duties on “Best Damn Sports Show, Period” and CMT’s top-rated “My Big Redneck” franchise including My Big Redneck Family, which premiered with the highest ratings in CMT history.
Arnold cornered the market on playing the resident comic relief in films including “Nine Months” with Hugh Grant, Julianne Moore, and Robin Williams; “True Lies” with Arnold Schwarzenegger; “Hero” with Dustin Hoffman and “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” with Mike Myers. Arnold will next be seen in his 72nd film, Stephen Gyllenhaal’s quirky political comedy “Grassrooots,” Tyler Perry’s “Madea Witness Protection” and “Hit and Run” with Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell and Bradley Cooper.
Arnold has successfully broken out of the comedic stereotype and is becoming a fixture at film festivals by landing more mature and dramatic roles. He received critical praise for his role in “Gardens of the Night,” opposite John Malkovich, “The Great Buck Howard,” starring John Malkovich and Tom Hanks, “Good Dick” opposite Jason Ritter, and “The Year of Getting to Know Us” opposite Sharon Stone, Jimmy Fallon and Lucy Liu. In 2005, he received critical notice for his role in Don Roos’ “Happy Endings” for Lions Gate Films. He was also seen in “Pride” opposite Terrance Howard, and “Animal Factory,” directed by Steve Buscemi. Other film credits include “Soul Plane,” “Cradle to the Grave,” “Exit Wounds” and “The Kid & I”.
Arnold began his career in comedy at the University of Iowa before moving to Minneapolis, where he won the Minneapolis Comedy Competition in 1988. He then moved to Los Angeles to write on the highly successful television series, Roseanne, before eventually serving as executive producer for the sitcom. He went on to star in his own HBO special entitled “Tom Arnold: The Naked Truth,” and then wrote, produced and starred in his own television series “The Jackie Thomas Show,” “Tom” and “The Tom Show.”
Arnold recently returned to his roots as a stand-up comic. Never scripted, he pokes fun at his Midwest past, marital follies and absurd Hollywood stories. Just like his past film and television comedy work, Arnold is a ball of chaos and charisma on stage.
