Andy Dick is an American comedian, actor, musician, and television and film producer. His first regular television role was on the short-lived but influential Ben Stiller Show. In the mid-1990s, he had a long-running stint on NBC's NewsRadio and was a supporting character on Less than Perfect. He briefly had his own program, The Andy Dick Show, on MTV. He is noted for his outlandish behavior on a number of Comedy Central Roasts and other appearances. Dick was also a contestant on Season 16 of Dancing with the Stars in 2013.

Now he makes a stop at the Boca Black Box for one night only!
What is better than seeing The Diceman or "Ticked Off" Vic? Seeing them both TOGETHER! For one night only, these incredible comedic icons share the same stage to do what they do best: rant about society, sexually titilate you, swear, complain, and make fun of all the stupid, crazy things that connect as as humans.

SINGER/SHOWMAN ANNOUNCES FIRST LIVE CONCERTS SINCE SURVIVING DOUBLE HEART SURGERY IN DECEMBER
Pelican Café in Lake Park – April 21
Palm Beach International Jazz Festival – April 24
After surviving major double heart surgery, Palm Beach County’s favorite Master Showman Rob Russell today announced his first two “live, live, live” concerts since “dying twice on the operating table” last December in the Cardiac ICU at JFK Medical Center.
From his years as the polished front man at the distinguished Governor’s Club at Phillips Point to his neatly two decades as producer and emcee of the world famous Royal Room Cabaret at The Colony Hotel, Palm Beach, to his recent years as a singer, recording artist, and—after graduating top in his class at the Connecticut School of Broadcasting—Dick Robinson’s fill-in tune-spinner on Legends Radio 100.3 FM, Russell has amassed numerous fans of his audience-wowing musical talents and flashy show biz anecdotes. He will be sharing both again at his first two post-surgery performances:
Wednesday, April 21 at 6:30
Accompanied on piano by Kim Forman, who studied with Jazz Legend Marian McPartland, Russell returns for his much anticipated weekly engagements, offering songs and stories and a lot of laughs at the cozy indoor/outdoor Italian restaurant that describes itself as where “Nantucket Meets the Florida Keys,” under the skillful directions of husband-and-wife owners Mark Frangione and Karen Howe. “In addition to offering fabulous live music four nights a week, they have amazing food, too,” promises the singer. Pelican Café is located at 612 US-1 in Lake Park, FL 33403. For reservations, please call 561-842-7272
Saturday, April 24 at 2 pm
Palm Beach International Jazz Festival 2021
Kravis Center’s Rinker Playhouse
Russell will be the opening act for the third annual Palm Beach International Jazz Festival, appearing along with the Amazing MusicWomen Jazz Ensemble and headliner Jesse Jones, Jr. At this joint celebration of UNESCO’s International Jazz Day and a grand celebration of “the Great American Genre of Jazz,” Russell will perform songs from his first CD, the appropriately named Hello Again, share a few celebrity stories and tributes, and may even welcome a few special guests.
For tickets, call the Kravis Center Box Office at 561-832-7469, Monday-Friday 10 am to 2 pm; or visit the official website at www.kravis.org.
In preparing for his first two public performances since heart surgery, Russell has started writing his first book, a memoir about his years in Palm Beach and the many amazing stars with which he has worked, including Broadway-TV diva Faith Prince, with whom Rob shared a dishy virtual chat on YouTube earlier this month during a widely viewed CULTURE & COCKTAILS conversation hosted by the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County.

An Enchanting Evening with Julian Schwarz
is a Highlight of Palm Beach Symphony’s Masterwork Series
Livestreamed concert follows the Symphony’s 19th Annual Gala
In what promises to be an exciting evening of music, family and masterpieces, Palm Beach Symphony presents guest cellist Julian Schwarz reuniting with his father, Symphony music director Gerard Schwarz, on the podium. The special performance is livestreamed from the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 19.

The Gala auction, filled with exquisite experiences, is accessible HERE. The concert and gala are dedicated to Leslie Rose, Palm Beach Symphony chairman emeritus and honorary grand benefactor.
Acclaimed for his powerful tone, effortless virtuosity and extraordinarily large color palate, Julian performs Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1, a work which the Hartford Courant noted of a previous concert by Julian, is “filled with tricky figuration…Schwarz heard beyond the virtuosic elements. Warmth and a variety of colors emerged in his lyrical playing.” Julian also treats the audience to the melodious and tranquil respite of Dvořák: Silent Woods for cello and orchestra. Palm Beach Symphony presents two early works that foreshadowed their composers’ future greatness: William Grant Still’s jazz and blues influenced expression of the Black experience Darker America and Mendelssohn’s fluid and ultimately fiery Symphony No. 1.
Since being awarded first prize at the inaugural Schoenfeld International String Competition in 2013, Julian has led an active career as a soloist performing in the U.S. and abroad. Performing as a duo with pianist Marika Bournaki, he was awarded first prize at the inaugural Boulder International String Competition’s “The Art of Duo,” and the pair subsequently embarked on an extensive 10-recital tour of China. Schwarz is a founding member of the New York-based Frisson Ensemble and the Mile-End Trio. An ardent supporter of new music, he has premiered concertos by Richard Danielpour, Samuel Jones and Lowell Liebermann and recital works by Paul Frucht, Scott Ordway, Jonathan Cziner, Gavin Fraser, Alex Weiser and Ofer Ben-Amots.
The concert will be performed before a limited invited audience at the Kravis in accordance with health and safety guidelines following CDC recommendations and guidance from local and state officials.
The concert also will be broadcast digitally in high-quality video and audio which can be viewed for an entire week following the concert on computers, tablets, smartphones and TVs. Virtual passes are $30 by phone at (561) 281-0145.
