Comedian Bernadette Pauley



04.08.2015



Laughter is coming to West Shore Community College on Thur., April 16, when the Performing Arts Series and Student Senate co-host comedian extraordinaire Bernadette Pauley at Center Stage Theater. The hilarity begins at 7:30 p.m.

Pauley appears across the country in comedy clubs and on TV. She has made repeated appearances on VH1, MTV, TBS, Animal Planet, and Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn.”

The “New York Post” listed her as “The Best of New York City Live Comedy” and she is the co-host of “The Gossip Queens,” a daily half-hour television series airing five days a week in syndication.

Her comedy is daring, blunt, honest and hilarious. It is no wonder that she is adored at clubs and on college campuses, says Dr. Matt Sanderson, WSCC Student Senate faculty advisor.

Bernadette Pauley appears regularly as a guest panelist on HLN’S “The Joy Behar Show” and Fox News “Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld” and “Megyn Kelly” shows. She’s made repeat appearances on VH1, MTV, TBS, Animal Planet, and has worked with Hollywood director Andy Tennant on his “Wedding Album” pilot for FOX. Past hosting projects include hosting “Burly TV” for Lorne Michaels and “War of The Wives” for Bravo.

Between television appearances, she headlines colleges, casinos and comedy clubs throughout the U.S. and internationally and has twice been touted by “Student Activities Magazine” as a “Hot Comedy Act to Follow.”

Her jokes have been printed in “The Huffington Post” and the “New York Post” who has listed her as “The best of New York City Live Comedy” and listed her jokes among the “Funniest of 2010.″

Born and raised in Revere, MA, in an Irish Catholic Boston neighborhood, she is the daughter of a cab driver and a union steward.

After graduating Emerson College with a B.A., she moved to New York and began paying off her education with a string of glamorous jobs including waitress, bartender, paralegal (lasted one day), bathroom attendant, coat check girl, cigarette girl and dog walker. With a resume like that she asks, could she be anything but funny?

Recently relocated from New York to Los Angeles with her husband and her Chihuahua Buddy, Bernie often wonders where she belongs, in blue collar Revere or Beverly Hills. She says that the answer is both and neither.

Tickets for the evening of comedy are available 24/7 online, or by calling the theater box office at 843-5507.
