“LAUGHS FOR LOVED ONES” RAISING FUNDS, AWARENESS FOR ALZHEIMER’S
Local stand-up comics join forces to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association of North Eastern New York at Waterworks Pub on November 9th
The area’s best stand-up comedians will join forces for a one-time event to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of North Eastern New York.
Laughs for Loved Ones will be held on Friday, November 9th at the Waterworks Comedy Lounge (76 Central Ave., Albany). The show starts at 9pm with doors opening at 8:30pm. The cost for the event is $10 with all proceeds going directly to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Headlining the event are crowd favorites Jaye McBride and Ethan Ullman. Jaye has been seen literally coast to coast, from the Laugh Factory and Comedy Store in LA to Caroline’s in New York City. Locally, she serves as the co-host and co-producer of the monthly Laughs on Lark showcase, which occurs on the second Wednesday of every month at Elda’s on Lark in Albany, NY. Ethan is the host of Alternative to Sleeping, a weekly comedy program that can be heard on WCDB 90.9FM and alt2sleep.com, and has opened for Todd Barry, Brian Posehn, and Doug Stanhope, among others.
Other local comics on the lineup include Kevin Marshall, Mo Haskins, Kristin VanSteemburg, Luke Donovan, and Shawn Gillie.
The event is being organized by Kevin Marshall. Waterworks Pub is providing the facility for the event free of charge.
