Comedian Paul Reiser is coming to Bangor this weekend to make people laugh. Reiser, who starred in the popular NBC '90s sitcoms 'My Two Dads' and 'Mad About You,' began his career as a stand-up comedian long before he started acting. Besides TV, he's also had the opportunity to star in several movies, including 'Aliens,' 'Beverly Hills Cop I' and 'II,' and most recently he played Matt Damon's lawyer in the Emmy award winning HBO movie 'Behind the Candelabra.' 

But what most people may not realize is that Reiser is also gifted in music. He wrote the theme song 'Final Frontier' for 'Mad About You' and collaborated with and played piano for British singer/songwriter Julia Fordham on the album Unusual Suspects. When he wasn't busy acting or making music he found time to become an author. Reiser has written three books so far 'Couplehood,' 'Babyhood' and 'Familyhood,' and he shows no signs of slowing down. I recently had the opportunity to talk with him by phone. He said he's looking forward to visiting the Gracie Theatre and sharing some universal laughs about the absurdities of modern life.
