Adrianne Tolsch began her career in New York City at Catch a Rising Star and The Improv. She has headlined at every major comedy club in the United States, as well as casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Adrianne has performed as far away as London, England, Melbourne, Australia and Hobart, Tasmania. She has been the opening act for Jay Leno, The Pointer Sisters, Bobby Vinton, Pat Cooper, and Billy Crystal.
Tolsch garnered rave reviews for her performance on Broadway in 3 From Brooklyn at the Helen Hayes Theatre and co-hosted the syndicated radio show The Better Sex.
Adrianne has received two Bistro Awards and three Manhattan Association of Cabaret Awards for Outstanding Comedy Performance. Most recently, she was honored with the 2004 Cabaret Hotline Award for her first one-woman show, Trucks, Guns and Mayonnaise, and again in 2006 for her second show,
None of Your Damn Business.
None of Your Damn Business is a hilarious look at getting older. For Tolsch, aging is a "way of laugh." "I've come up with a new skin cream for the woman unafraid of aging. It's called 'Embalm.'"
Currently, Tolsch is a regular cast member of the hit Off-Broadway revue,
The Jewish Princesses of Comedy.
Adrianne lives in Manhattan and is married to Bill Scheft, a writer for Late Show with David Letterman.
