Comedian Tony Tripoli at Shadowbox Live

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

Celebrity-junk show junkies will love comedian Tony Tripoli's standup act. Joan Rivers called him the "second funniest woman in comedy." She would know. Tripoli writes barbs Rivers uses in her own standup and for the TV show "Fashion Police." For $10, spend the night with the openly gay comic's endearingly irreverent take on everything from sex to Hollywood to Rivers herself.
