Late night comedy will come to Maggie Mae’s this week for the second annual Sunnyside Comedy “X-Mas Show.”
The show starts at 8 p.m. on Dec. 16, and is hosted by co-producers Colin Anton Samuel and Lindsay Goldwert. The lineup includes established and up-and-coming comedians, including several veterans of the late night scene.
Comedians will include David Feldman, who has written for “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Mark Normand, who has made multiple appearances on “Conan,” Kerry Coddet, who has made multiple appearances on “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore,” and more.
The X-Mas Show will be Sunnyside Comedy’s last for the year. Starting in 2016, Wednesday mics at Maggie Mae’s will replace the group’s weekly show. The Sunnyside Comedy show will become monthly, to be held on the last Wednesday of each month.
Sunnyside Comedy is also seeking local businesses to sponsor prizes for these monthly shows.
“We’d love to offer the audience members the chance to check out local businesses,” Goldwert and Samuel said. “Whether it’s gift certificates to a local pet store, restaurant or salon, we want to offer fun prizes to audience members that also inspire them to shop locally.”
Tickets for the X-Mas Show are $10 at the door, which includes raffle entry.
