I’m really looking forward to sharing the stage with him for a memorable evening of comedy, storytelling and laughter. See ya there!” Dennis was a guest on Larry’s ORA talk show last spring. The duo had such a good time together talking about the state of comedy and current events, they decided to take that same chemistry and put it on the stage.
