Bodden has also appeared in several movies and television shows, including the Showtime series, “Californication” in 2014. Tickets are $20-$75; $20 for students under 21 and military personnel.
Humorist Peter Sagal, who has hosted “Wait, Wait” since 1998, will appear at the Bankhead at 8 p.m., on Saturday, May 16. His appearance is being co-sponsored by the Rae Dorough Speaker Series. Tickets are $20-$95; $20 for students under 21 and military personnel.
Standup comedian, “Wait Wait” regular, and Livermore favorite Paula Poundstone will make a return to the Bankhead with her wooden stool, Diet Pepsi, and insights on life and living at 8 p.m., on Saturday, June 27. Tickets are $20-$65; $20 for students under 21 and military personnel.
