The Ovation Hall at the Odawa Casino in Petoskey, Michigan, is proud to present the legendary Paul Reiser on Saturday, August 4. Comedian, actor, television writer, author, and musician Paul Reiser has spent the last 30+ years acting in Oscar and Emmy award-winning movies and TV shows. He was voted one of Comedy Central’s “Top 100 Comedians of All Time.”
The NY-bred and LA-based Reiser has made a number of appearances on screen and even lent his talents behind the camera.
Reiser joined the cast of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ for the series’ highly anticipated second season, which was released in October and recently renewed for a third season. In a role created by the Duffer brothers with him specifically in mind, Reiser played Dr. Owens, a high-ranking member of the Department of Energy who is brought to the small town to investigate the supernatural situations at play.
The actor will co-star alongside Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon in the new action-comedy, ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me,’ which is set for release on August 3, 2018.
Reiser has had notable performances in films such as ‘Diner,’ ‘Bye Bye Love,’ ‘The Marrying Man,’ ‘Aliens,’ ‘One Night At McCool’s,’ and ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ (I and II). He also co-created and starred in the critically acclaimed NBC series ‘Mad About You,’ which garnered him multiple Emmy, Golden Globe, American Comedy Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations. More recently, Reiser earned acclaim for his supporting role in the 2015 Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-winning film, ‘Whiplash,’ starring JK Simmons and Miles Teller.
Reiser, who attended the State University of New York at Binghamton and majored in music, co-wrote “The Final Frontier” – the theme song from ‘Mad About You’ with Grammy-winning producer Don Was, and in 2011 he released an album of original songs with British singer / songwriter Julia Fordham called ‘Unusual Suspects.’
Paul Reiser and his family reside in Los Angeles.
