Comedienne Whoopi Goldberg, the award-winning star of stage, film and television, plays Stamford Center for the Art's Palace Theatre for one night only.
Whoopi Goldberg can be heard daily on her new radio show, "Wake Up With Whoopi."

Whoopi, Billy Crystal and Robin Williams co-hosted HBO's now-historic eight Comic Relief benefits for the nation's homeless, which raised more than $40 million.
