The Newtown Education Foundation (NEF) has shared a “save the date” announcement for its second annual adults only Evening of Comedy fundraiser at Edmond Town Hall Saturday, January 20.
Full details for the event will be announced when tickets go on sale around mid-December. NEF promotes and supports innovative education programs for the benefit of students in the Newtown Public Schools system, according to the foundation. For the second year in a row, a VIP Party is also being planned ahead of the evening, at which appetizers and food will be served.
Three comedians — Keith Anthony, John Iavarone, and Tony Liberati — will offer entertainment for the evening. Mr Liberati was one of the three comedians who performed at last year’s Evening of Comedy.
According to NEF, Mr Anthony has shared the stage with comedians such as Bill Hicks, Gilbert Gottfried, Sam Kinnison, Louis CK, Joy Behar, Brian Regan, Dice Clay, Bobby Collins, and Dom Irerra to name a few. His television credits include appearances on A&E, Showtime, and Comedy Central. Mr Iavarone has been doing stand-up comedy for 2,920 days (not in a row). Mr Liberati has been entertaining crowds all over the country. He has been on ABC’s America’s Funniest People and his jokes have been published alongside fellow comedians like Chris Rock and Henny Youngman in The Idiot’s Guide to Joke Telling by Alpha Publishing.
