Reviews & Ratings
Blue Comedy returns to The Ice House with the appearance of veteran comedian & actress Thea Valde. She is perhaps best remembered for her primetime ABC sitcom Thea for which she was nominated for a People's Choice Award. In the show, Vidale portrayed Thea Turrell, a widowed mother of four who works in a Houston supermarket by day and runs a one-chair beauty salon on the corner of her porch in the evenings. The show's appeal was centered in her heart-warming portrayal of a no-nonsense mother shepherding her children through their formative years.
Formerly a wise-cracking, working-class waitress in Pasadena, TX, Vidale made her stage debut in 1986 at a local comedy club's amateur night. Soon after, she found herself starring in the prestigious "Just for Laughs Comedy Festival" and Rodney Dangerfield's HBO special, Where's Rodney. She has starred in numerous cable specials including Def Comedy Jam, Comedy from the Danger Zone, A Pair of Jokers and Comedy's Dirtiest Dozen.
Vidale's success can be attributed to a stand-up act that is anything but mild. Her substantial physical presence can only underscore her raw, confrontational depiction of American culture. Yet are drawn to Vidale because a warmth and honesty pervades her hard-edged material.
