The hilarious but troubled comedian Artie Lange returns to Poughkeepsie in November with a new lease on life. He recently got out of a long-term residential rehab facility and announced a number of comedy dates after declaring his sobriety.

Lange will return to the stage at Laugh It Up Comedy Club on Friday, Nov. 1 for an 18 and older show. Tickets start at $40 and can be purchased here. Doors are at 7, showtime is at 8.

CNN reports Lange was ordered into a facility several months ago after testing positive for cocaine twice over a six week period. His newly revamped bit could discuss his road to recovery.

We're all pulling for Artie, here's to a great show!
