Zane Lamprey

New York comedian Zane Lamprey really, seriously has the coolest job on the planet—which he roams as host of the Travel Channel’s popular Three Sheets program. Ostensibly, he’s learning about diverse drinking cultures by hanging out with expert brewers and bartenders, but it seems to be written into his contract that he must get smashed in every place he visits, be it Brussels, Bangkok, or Belize. With great zest, he’s downed pineapple liqueur in Tahiti, ouzo in Greece, and African firewater in Namibia. Lamprey is also the recent author of Three Sheets: Drinking Made Easy! 6 Continents, 15 Countries, 190 Drinks, and 1 Mean Hangover. Tonight, he and sidekicks Steve McKenna and Pleepleus the Monkey will perform comedy and sing tunes like “Beer, I Love You” (featured on his album Sing the Booze). Good thing this is a 21-and-over show, because, according to Lamprey, “The more you drink, the better I sound.” ERIN K. THOMPSON
