Comedy for a Cause- One Woman Show

July 30, 2015, 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| $50 - $75

Join us for a night of entertainment on the water to support Paraclete’s Summer Program!

Enjoy wine tasting at the Boston Winery and a three-course meal in Venezia’s beautiful waterfront banquet room, followed by American Comedy Award nominee Patty Ross. Comedy starts at 8:00pm.

Patty Ross makes her triumphant return to Paraclete Comedy with a new one-woman show, “It’ll Be Fine!”, delivering her warm yet biting takes on love, mothers, husbands, children, and other indignities of life. Perceptive, knowing, all-too-familiar, her observations are both moving and deeply hilarious.

But don’t take our word for it. Listen to Dick Cavett:  “Patty Ross is, for me, everything a top-flight comic should be. Funny, of course. But Patty is sharply intelligent, physically funny, obviously a shrewd creator of material and, onstage, an artist. Her performing skills range from hilarious to warmly touching. I laughed until I hurt the first time I saw her in person. They say you can’t have it all. Patty Ross does.”

This perfect “Girls Night Out” event will fill the room with laughter in July, right when you need a glass of wine among friends.

Proceeds will support this year’s Summer Program, themed Back in Time. Students in grades 4th-8th practice math an reading in the morning and visit one of Boston’s historic sites every day. Your contributions make these field trips possible and allow our students to learn outside the classroom.
