Adrianne Tolsch began her career in New York City at Catch a Rising Star and The Improv. She has headlined at every major comedy club in the United States, as well as casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Adrianne has performed as far away as London, England, Melbourne, Australia and Hobart, Tasmania. She has been the opening act for Jay Leno, The Pointer Sisters, Chita Rivera, Bobby Vinton, Pat Cooper, Clint Holmes and Billy Crystal.
Tolsch garnered rave reviews for her performance on Broadway in 3 From Brooklyn at the Helen Hayes Theatre and co-hosted the syndicated radio show The Better Sex.
Adrianne has received two Bistro Awards and three Manhattan Association of Cabaret Awards for Outstanding Comedy Performance. She was also honored with a Cabaret Hotline Award for her first one-woman show, Trucks, Guns and Mayonnaise, and again for her second show, None of Your Damn Business.
None of Your Damn Business is a hilarious look at getting older. For Tolsch, aging is a "way of laugh." "I've come up with a new skin cream for the woman unafraid of aging. It's called 'Embalm.'"
Her new one-woman show, Tolschinsky, will be out next spring.
For the last several years, Tolsch has been a regular cast member of the hit Off-Broadway revue, The Princesses of Comedy. Most recently, she was featured in the film “The ROMEOWS,” and is one of the Executive Producers of the upcoming documentary about female comics and plastic surgery, “Take My Nose….Please!”
The video of her performance at the Kravis Center in Palm Beach generated over 100,000 hits on YouTube in less than 3 months.
Adrianne lives in Manhattan and is married to Bill Scheft, author and longtime writer for David Letterman.
