A Juno Award winner and three-time winner of the Canadian Smooth Jazz Award for Guitarist of the Year, Cook has sold over 1.5 million records worldwide. His music has been featured at the Olympics and on popular TV shows, such as Sex and the City. He's opened for such legends as B.B. King, Ray Charles and Diana Krall, and has performed on The Tonight Show and on PBS in his own concert special, Jesse Cook, Live in Concert. Learn More

This performance was by far the worst comedy show I have been to. The pre-show opening act was the best part.
Belzer was horrible, and his band was too. The best part of Belzer was when he showed how he got put into a sleeper hold and knocked out cold by Hulk Hogan. His bit was too long and not funny at all.
Lewis was sub-par, even though I lovd him on Curb Your Enthusiasm. I don't know if his jokes are supposed to be all over the place, or that's his style. If it is, i'd never want to see him again.
Overall, I was embarrassed to attend with my girlfriend, and make her stand in line in the cold, be in a shove-fest for tickets, wait 30min over the scheduled performance time, and put her thru the dreaded performances.
It’s the ultimate “concert from hell": Two legends of stand-up – on one stage for one night. Richard Belzer and Richard Lewis define what it means to be a stand-up comic, and tear up the stage with the funniest double bill you’ll ever experience.
Richard Lewis has taken his lifelong therapy fodder and carved it into a commanding, compelling art form. Featured on six seasons of HBO’s award-winning Curb Your Enthusiasm, Lewis’ numerous other film and TV accomplishments include a boxed set of his Concerts from Hell containing three of his acclaimed comedy specials. Often compared to a jazz musician for his wild riffs, Comedy Central has recognized Richard Lewis as one of the top 50 stand-up comedians of all time and he was charted on GQ Magazine’s list of the 20th Century’s Most Influential Humorists. Regarded by his peers as a “comic’s comic,” Lewis’ neuroses have become a part of our language as in the now infamous, “I had a date from Hell!” As Lewis has always said, “I go on a long tour and make people happy that they’re not me and go home."
Best know for his character, Detective John Munch, on Law & Order, Richard Belzer began his career as a stand-up comic in the early 70’s. The “Belz”, as he is know, went from a prominent comedy career to holding the world record for playing one of the longest running characters in TV history, ‘Munch’. His first role in show business began with a staring role in Groove Tube, as well as other parts in Fame, Saturday Night Live and Scarface to his current run on Law & Order. In 2001, Belzer was honored by the New York Friars Club and the Toyota Comedy Festival as the honoree of the first ever roast. Additionally, Belzer has starred in his own HBO comedy special, Another Lone Nut, and the Showtime series The Richard Belzer Show and acts as a talent scout for Last Comic Standing. Belzer has also added published author to his repertoire with such titles as, How to Be a Stand-Up Comic, UFOs, JFK and Elvis: Conspiracies You Don’t Have to Be Crazy to Believe, and most recently a novel titled, I Am Not a Cop. Belzer now performs stand-up with his backup band the Belzonics.
