From The South Orange Performing Arts Center:

A clean comedian, “the funniest woman in the world,” an SNL veteran and a 90s sitcom star walk into a bar, well, performing arts center. This fall, head to the South Orange Performing Arts Center for some laughs with comedic icons Ryan Hamilton, Maria Bamford, Kevin Nealon and Paul Reiser. Plus, on the first Wednesday of every month, swing by Laughs in the Loft—a stand-up series hosted by Joe Larson featuring comics from our own backyard in SOPAC’s Loft on the third floor.
