We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Rob Schneider’s career has been marked by an unrelenting desire—or, at least, lack of restraint—to shock and offend. Strange for a practicing Buddhist, but Schneider realizes that’s what people want and what makes comedians stand out. So, after a 17-year hiatus, 2010 marks Schneider’s return to stand-up. His goals to push boundaries and elicit belly laughs are nothing new for him.

The actor, known for his Saturday Night Live stint 16 years ago as well as a variety of roles in Adam Sandler films—including, most recently, Grown Ups—and leading roles in two Deuce Bigalow films, is branching into more sophisticated subject matter. Don’t count on seeing his old-school yet unforgettable characters, because he’s aiming to present all new material about current issues like America’s military-industrial complex. And, don’t expect a toned-down, censored Utah performance, either.
