Free Comedy Show for Long Island Military Veterans

Written by Hannah M.  |  18. April 2012


The Paramount will welcome Long Island Military Veterans and their families at a special FREE Comedy Showcase on Saturday, April 28th at 3pm.   "We're excited to be partnering with The Paramount on this big show" said comedian Paul Anthony who produces The Paramount Comedy Series. "Tickets for this special performance are being made absolutely FREE to all Long Island Veterans and Veteran organizations across Long Island. The show is just a simple way to say thank you, and recognize the local military personnel, veterans and their families for their important contributions."
The Paramount approached Anthony with the idea after hearing about Our Heroes Night Out, a program that brings entertainment to the homeless vets at the Northport V.A. Medical Center. "It all came together very quickly", he said. "Laughter has the ability to bring people together, and that's really what we're hoping to achieve here. We're hoping to bring laughter and fun into the lives of the Long Island Veteran community. With the Paramount Comedy Series quickly becoming the most popular comedy showcase on Long Island, we're making plans for this special performance to be a very memorable one" said Anthony.

Showtime is 3 pm on Saturday, April 28th at The Paramount. Tickets will be available through local Veteran's organizations, by e-mail at vets@paramountny.com, or veterans with military ID can pick up their FREE tickets at The Paramount Box Office - while supplies last. The Box Office is open daily from 12 noon - 6pm and 'til 9 pm during events.


Comedians scheduled to peform include: Maria Walsh ("America's Naughtiest Mommy" and national headliner) and Chris DiStefano (direct from Caroline's and the N.Y.C. comedy scene). Hosted by Paul Anthony.  More comedians to be announced soon!
