Louie Anderson 

When: Thu., June 15, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $38

Over the past three decades, comedian Louie Anderson has enjoyed a long, steady career as a stand-up comic in addition to popping up in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Family Feud, and a smattering of one-off TV roles. More recently, though, Anderson has appeared alongside Zach Galifianakis in Baskets, a dark and borderline surreal FX comedy. Galifianakis plays a failed French-trained clown who's trying to get back on his feet; Anderson plays his fussy mother. The two squabble and butt heads, but their codependent, dysfunctional relationship is often as tender as it is comical. Anderson won an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy for the role last year. He probably won't be in character in Raleigh, but perhaps he'll have some intriguing insights on his gender-bending new gig. —Allison Hussey
