On Saturday night, January 5th, top comedians from the New York, Atlantic City, and Las Vegas comedy club circuits will appear in Livingston at Hanukkah Hilarity Comedy Night, a special evening of standup comedy presented at Temple Beth Shalom. The event marks the tenth year that the synagogue’s Men’s Club brings to Livingston the look, feel and enjoyment of an evening at a New York City comedy club. Hanukkah Hilarity Comedy Night is open to the entire community. Temple Beth Shalom is located at 193 East Mt. Pleasant Avenue.
Comedy stars Johnny Lampert, Brad Trackman and Andy Hendrickson will share the spotlight on this first Saturday night of 2013. Headliner Johnny Lampert has been featured on HBO, NBC, Comedy Central, and the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival. Lampert regularly appears at Caroline’s and the Comic Strip and headlines at comedy clubs from Manhattan to Los Angeles. New York City-based Brad Trackman can be both seen on comedy stages and heard on Sirius Radio. Trackman was featured in Comedy Central’s “Heroes of Jewish Comedy” and stars in clubs throughout the country. Andy Hendrickson was a showcase winner at the HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and a finalist at the Great American Comedy Festival. A favorite on college campuses, Hendrickson has appeared in Europe and entertained the troops in the Middle East.
Hanukkah Hilarity Comedy Night on Saturday night, January 5th will see Temple Beth Shalom’s Lester Hall transformed into a comedy club for a special night of post-holiday laughs open to all in Livingston. “We know Hanukkah, Christmas and the holiday season will have come and gone by January 5th,” said the temple’s Men’s Club president, Jeffrey Greif. “Our goal”, Greif added, “is to extend the holiday spirit into January and help ring in 2013 with a night of laughs and good times for everyone.”
