Tickets are on sale now for $35-50 on Ticketmaster.
Lange’s performance is part of the continued revival of Valley Forge Music Fair, which showcases top-notch live music, comedy and entertainment acts.

Additional acts will be announced for the fall and early winter at https://vfcasino.com/entertainment/valley-forge-music-fair/.
“Valley Forge Casino Resort is thrilled to host another great night of laughs with Artie Lange,” said Valley Forge Casino Resort Chief Marketing Officer Jennifer Galle. “His performance brings yet another high-profile, nationally recognized act to our stage. Stay tuned - entertainment is just heating up at Valley Forge Music Fair!”
One of the most sought after live comedians in the business, Lange is currently the co-host of “The Artie Lange Show,” a Fox News Radio show he created. Launched this past fall, the show has already garnered rave reviews and a massive fan base. Lange was a beloved regular on “The Howard Stern Show” for five years and during that time his first memoir, Too Fat To Fish became a New York Times bestseller, paving the way for his second book Crash and Burn, published in 2013. Artie’s first TV stand-up hour special, The Stench of Failure, premiered on Comedy Central in October 2014.
Artie Lange began his career in the comedy clubs of New York City, where he helped to create the popular sketch comedy group Live on Tape. Lange’s breakout work with Live On Tape landed him his debut television role as one of the original series regulars on FOX’s Mad TV.
Lange’s success on Mad TV led to being cast opposite Norm MacDonald in Lange’s first starring role in the MGM feature film Dirty Work. This lead to a string of feature films including, New Line’s The Bachelor, starring opposite Chris O’Donnell and Renee Zellweger; Lost and Found with David Spade for Warner Brothers; Kinka Usher’s Mystery Men and the independent drama The Fourth Floor, opposite Juliette Lewis and William Hurt. Artie also had supporting roles in the Dreamworks feature film Old School and New Line Cinema’s Elf.
Lange also starred, co-wrote, and produced his own feature film Beer League. Richard Roeper gave it a “Thumbs Up,” and the readers of the New York Times rated it four out of five stars. Lange is also a regular guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Best Damn Sports Show, Period. He was a guest roaster on Comedy Central’s Roasts of Hugh Hefner and William Shatner and also shot episodes of the critically acclaimed hit series Entourage for HBO, and the season finale of Rescue Me for F/X. Another milestone for Lange was selling out his Carnegie Hall performance for the New York Comedy Festival in 3 hours. He continues to sell out venues across the United States.
