On Friday, October 26th, the New Jersey Youth Theatre (NJYT) will host a “Comedy and Costumes” fund-raiser, to benefit NJYT’s school Cabaret, summer production and its performing arts education classes.
“Comedy and Costumes” will take place at 7 p.m. at The Crossroads in Garwood, NJ (78 North Avenue) and will feature the talents of comedians who have performed extensively in clubs in the tri-state area and around the country. They boast numerous credits from television, radio, film and the internet.
Second City alum Adam Lucidi and Doug Adler were featured in the New York Underground Comedy Festival. Mr. Lucidi and Mr. Adler, along with Aaron Eisenberg and Kim Jonny, “ghost host” for the evening, have all headlined at the Gotham, New York, and Broadway Comedy Clubs. Mr. Eisenberg and Ms. Jonny have also headlined at Caroline’s and the Comedy Cellar. Mr. Eisenberg was the host of The Intern Asks on People.com. Ms. Jonny is known in the Westfield area as the head of the Roosevelt Intermediate School Drama department.
Doors open at 6:30 pm. General admission is $40, but patrons will receive a $10 discount if they come in costume. Food and beverages can be purchased separately throughout the evening.
“By supporting Comedy Night, patrons will be contributing to the well-being and longevity of NJYT,” states Cynthia Meryl, co-founder of the school, “helping to sustain the NJYT Performing Arts School and the free summer production program.”
