by BWW News Desk
The Firehouse Theatre Project is pleased to announce a Comedy Benefit Show starring stand-up comedian Eddie Sarfaty on Sunday, April 10 at 8:00 p.m. at the Firehouse Theatre.
For one night only, the Firehouse stage will be graced with the hilarious presence of New York City comedian Eddie Sarfaty. Beginning March 28, the stand-up professional will be conducting a two-week comedy workshop at the Firehouse for “critically judgmental, self-deprecating, and attention starved people” who want to experience comedy from the other side of the microphone. Sarfaty will culminate his tenure in Richmond with a stand-up show to benefit the Firehouse and to showcase the achievements of the workshop students. The newly trained comedians will perform their material as an opening act for Sarfaty on April 10th.
Tickets are available online at www.firehousetheatre.org: $20 for adults and $15 for students, with all proceeds benefiting FTP. There will be a cash bar as well as
Come join Eddie and laugh your asses off in support of the Firehouse Theatre and arts education!
