Preview: Stephen Lynch
Showbox, Seattle, WA
Musician, comedian, and actor Stephen Lynch has been walking the line between jester and bard for nearly two decades, and he’s back at Seattle’s Showbox this spring for “The My Old Heart Tour.” Lynch caught his big break with his Comedy Central Presents special in the early 2000s. With his musical prowess at the forefront of his act, this gave him access to more venues that cater to musicians, garnering him a broader audience.
After a successful run as Robbie Hart in the Broadway adaptation of The Wedding Singer, along with releasing the double album, Lion, in 2012, Lynch is back on the road bringing his unique brand of the sunnyside of dark comedy with him. Expect off-the-wall lyrical punches at the foibles of American life and plenty of poking fun.
