Join us at Live Oak Community Center for a night of standup comedy featuring Bay Area comedians.

The four acts include regulars at Bay Area clubs and comedy competitions, a storyteller who engages in wordplay, and an Oaklander who's as comfortable spinning jokes in a club or a church.

The variety of backgrounds and styles offer a chance to enjoy something we all need more of: laughter.

While kids are not allowed in the show, you can pre-register for convenient onsite childcare. Parents can enjoy the show or simply embark on a parent's night out while we watch your little ones.
