Rivers will play Tuesdays at 9 PM and Wednesdays at 8 PM May 12-20 at the intimate cabaret located within the West Bank Cafe. The "Celebrity Apprentice" favorite will offer "her newest and most outrageous riffs on Hollywood, pop culture, celebrities, reality TV and award show fashions," according to press notes.

Joan Rivers made her Broadway stage debut in Fun City and later was a replacement player in Neil Simon's Broadway Bound. A stand-up comic making guest-host appearances on "The Tonight Show," Rivers eventually hosted her own talk show, "The Joan Rivers Show." She received a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress for her work in Sally Marr...and Her Escorts — which she also co-wrote. Her most recent theatrical outing was in her autobiographical A Work in Progress by a Life in Progress.

The Laurie Beechman Theatre is located within the West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42nd Street at Ninth Avenue. Tickets are $30 with a portion of the proceeds going to God's Love We Deliver and Guide Dogs for the Blind. There is also a $15 per person food or drink minimum.
