'Graham Norton:Know All' at The Village Theatre
Catch the internationally infamous Graham Norton Live in New York City. Presented by WestBeth Entertainment, Graham Norton: Know All will play a limited engagement at The Village Theatre from the 4 - 22 Oct 2005
Graham Norton uncovers the humor behind the headlines in Graham Norton: Know All ï¿½ a whirlwind verbal vomit from the potty mouth of Mr. Norton, an entertainer who knows everything except, it would seem, shame.
The UK's irreverent TV host and comedian recently landed on US tubes with Comedy Central's 'The Graham Norton Effect.' Previously, the Emmy award-winning Mr Norton earned renown as host of BBC AMERICA'S 'So Graham Norton.' His live stage show 'Red-Handed' toured Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles (all September 2003) and New York (April/May 2003).
Graham Norton is known on both sides of the Atlantic using his disarming charm to push the boundaries of etiquette, all the while delighting, surprising and shocking his audience. Raised in a remote village in the Republic of Ireland, Graham Norton grew up to become one of the most popular entertainment presenters on British television.
Winner of a bevy of British Academy (BAFTA) awards, Graham Norton's position as one of the UK's most popular entertainers was cemented when he claimed a BAFTA for Entertainment Performer and an International Emmy in the Popular Arts category. He trained at the prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama in London and then spent most of his 20s as a struggling actor, waiting tables and tending bars to supplement his meager income from acting. His big break in the world of comedy came in 1997 when he was nominated for the Perrier comedy award at the world-famous Edinburgh Festival.
A stint presenting on 'The Jack Docherty Show' spawned his hugely successful comedy talk show 'So Graham Norton.' Subsequently, he has hosted various shows, including 'Strictly Dance Fever,' 'Points of View,' 'The 100 Greatest TV Moments' and has recorded specials in Japan ('Ah So Graham Norton'), China ('Mao Graham Norton') and Mexico ('Si Graham Norton'). He has also made guest appearances on programs such as 'Father Ted' and as a regular guest on the BBC radio shows 'Loose Ends' and 'ï¿½Just a Minute.' Recently, Graham completed work on a new film starring Michelle Pfeiffer.
