Event description

Description

We are excited to host a Comedy Night that offers humorous insights into life on the autism spectrum. Come have some laughs, learn, and support a good cause!

Our headliner is Adam Schwartz, a stand-up comedian, self-advocate and published author. Adam is bringing to the evening his NEW show, which takes a hilarious look at living on the autism spectrum, and which he created based on his everyday life experiences. It will make you laugh hard, but it will also make you walk away with a little more insight into what life is like with autism.

A local performer, Morgan Nadeau, who is highly respected and sought after in the local clown community, will be joining the Comedy Night as well.

Entry by donation - the amount you pay is up to you.

This event is open to 180 entrants on a "first-come, first-served" basis. Please register if you plan on attending. All ages welcome - this event is family friendly.
