Laughing Through The Seasons: Michelle Buteau Kicks Off The 2023/2024 TRUIST Comedy Series

September 7, 2023

Get ready to buckle up and brace yourselves for a hearty dose of side-splitting laughter as the 2023/2024 TRUIST Comedy Series takes center stage! This year's lineup promises to be a rib-tickling extravaganza, featuring an ensemble of comedic talents that range from seasoned stand-up veterans to cutting-edge Social Media sensations. With a variety of events lined up throughout the season, audiences are in for a treat that will leave them in stitches.

A Hilarious Ride with Michelle Buteau
Kicking off the comedy series in style is none other than Michelle Buteau, a comedic powerhouse who has recently taken the entertainment world by storm.

Michelle found her voice on the stand-up stage before adding her unique personality to a variety of film and television projects. A New Jersey native, she started her career as a news editor in New York. She initially turned to performing comedy as a way of dealing with the overpowering emotions of the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, something that she was unable to escape as a member of the news media. Buteau was a steady presence in comedy clubs from then on, gradually building a reputation for her sassy, outspoken routines. Her rise up the comedy ranks began to pay off with television appearances on shows like "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson."

She gained further notice with her commentary on a revival of the cable show "Best Week Ever." She mixed in occasional acting appearances and kept up a full slate of stand-up appearances while also adding the podcast "Late Night Whenever!" to her resume. She continued acting as well, with noteworthy appearances on "Broad City" and "The Tick." Her screen career picked up steam in earnest beginning in 2019.

Buteau's talent extends beyond the stage. She's set to return to Netflix as the mastermind behind the upcoming series "Survival of the Thickest." Drawing inspiration from her autobiographical book of essays by the same name, the show promises to be a riotous exploration of life's quirks and quibbles. As if that weren't enough, Buteau is also at the helm of two wildly popular reality competition shows on Netflix: "The Circle" and "Barbecue Showdown."

Her comedic prowess isn't confined to the screen either. Buteau has made her mark in Hollywood with appearances in hit films and TV shows like "Marry Me," "First Wives Club," "Always Be My Maybe," "Awkwafina is Nora from Queens," "Russian Doll," and "Someone Great." And if you thought that was the extent of her talents, think again—Buteau also writes the Modern Manners column for Real Simple and hosts the immensely popular podcast "Adulting." With such a diverse and impressive repertoire, Buteau promises an evening of laughter that's not to be missed.

Michelle won the Critics Choice Award for Best Comedy Special for "Welcome to Buteaupia" on Netflix that speaks volumes about her comedic prowess. Now, she's bringing her uproarious "Full Heart, Tight Jeans" Tour to the Amaturo Theater on Friday, October 6th, 2023 at 8:00 p.m.
