CROTON FALLS, N.Y. -- Following the sold-out inaugural comedy night in June, the Schoolhouse Theater has scheduled three new comics for Comedy Night II, on Saturday, July 26, at 8 p.m.
"The great success of our first Comedy Night tells us there is a lot of pent- up demand for comedy-club type entertainment in our area," says Schoolhouse Executive Director James Shearwood. "Everyone who loves to laugh is invited to join us for a second round of side-splitting entertainment."
Partnering with Adam Oliensis of LoHud Comedy, Manhattan stand-up comedians Charles McBee, Joanne Filan and Doug Adler will be featured in the second Comedy Night. Oliensis, whose own act was very well-received in June, will serve as the evening's host.
McBee has his own web series called "It's a Chucked Up Life" and is a regular at major New York City clubs. McBee arrived in New York on an acting scholarship from Bowling Green State University in Ohio to attend the NY Conservatory for Dramatic Arts .
Having developed a following on the college circuit, Joanne Filan performs at Gotham Comedy, The Laugh Factory and Caroline's in NYC. She reports that she "was born in New Jersey but is doing her best not to die there."
A transplanted New York City native from Rockland County, Doug Adler transforms everyday life with an autobiographical cast of characters into one-of-a-kind humor. Adler is a regular at Gotham Comedy, Broadway Comedy, Ha! Comedy Club and Laugh Lounge.
"We hope to make Comedy Night a monthly feature as well as inaugurate an Open Mic for local talent and offer a stand-up comedy class for those looking to try more," said Shearwood.
Tickets for Comedy Night at the Schoolhouse are $20 and may be purchased at www.schoolhousetheater.org or by calling the box office at 914-277-8477. Advanced purchase is recommended.
