Infinity Music Hall Presents Dave Reilly--Norfolk


Route 44, Norfolk, CT 06058. Phone: 866-666-6306.

On Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 8PM DAve Rielly will perform at Infinity Hall.  Recommended for audiences 17+.  A little bit of Broadway, a touch of Vegas and a dash of improvisation. Not too dirty yet not too clean. "Who the hell is Dave Reilly?"... Dave Reilly is the fastest rising star in the comedy world and he has been compared to the comedic styling of Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, and Lenny Bruce by many of his comedy fans. Dave's original interpretation of some classic gender differences combined with his character acting has audiences literally falling out of their chairs in laughter. His brand of humor targets audiences from 21 to 60 and the biggest complaint after the show is, "My face hurts from laughing!" This 2+ hour show is unlike anything you have ever experienced. As seen on MTV and Fox, recently back from Las Vegas, we guarantee that this is one of the funniest shows you have ever seen. Check the website for further information.
