"An Evening of Comedy With David Steinberg," hosted by Robert Urich, is scheduled Jan. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Park City as a benefit for both Park City Performances and the Save Our Stage Foundation.
Ticket prices for this one-time-only performance are $60 and $75. Those attending will have an opportunity to ask questions of both Steinberg and Urich and attend a post-show reception at the Kimball Art Center.Steinberg is an alumnus of the popular "Second City" TV comedy show.
His career has also included performing on Broadway and writing for such TV productions as "The Smothers Brothers Show" and his own "David Steinberg Summer Show," which co-starred Lily Tomlin.
He has also made regular appearances on "The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson" (where he was second only to Bob Hope in the number of visits) and "Late Night With David Letterman."
Steinberg made his directing debut in 1980 and has worked nonstop as a director both in film and television, including such major TV shows as "Golden Girls," "Evening Shade," "Designing Women," "Seinfeld" and, most recently, "Mad About You."
One New York Times critic called him "one of the most creative directors on television."
Steinberg recently returned to his comedic roots with a one-man show to sold-out audiences in Los Angeles. Known for his wry humor, which targets whatever social mores are currently in vogue, Steinberg's appeal spans all age groups.
Last winter, Steinberg directed a production of "Love Letters" in Park City, starring his long-time friend, TV celebrity Robert Urich, and Urich's wife, actress Heather Menzies.
The Urichs, who live in Park City, have been active supporters of both Park City Performances and the Egyptian Theatre. The proceeds from last winter's two performances of "Love Letters" went toward the purchase of the theater by PCP.
Urich is probably best known for his roles in "Spenser: For Hire" and "Vega$," but he has also appeared in numerous miniseries and made-for-TV movies. He currently hosts National Geographic's "Explorer" and "On Assignment" series for TBS.
