Comedy Congress, hosted by Patt Morrison

Tuesday, December 14, 2010, 7:30pm - 9:30pm
The Crawford Family Forum 474 South Raymond Avenue Pasadena, CA 91105 Map and directions

Comedy Congress from the Crawford Family Forum! The comedic material emanating from Washington D.C., and state capitols across the country, is enough to make any sitcom writer jealous, even if most of that comedy is unintentional. Our motto on Comedy Congress is that just when politics makes you want to cry, it’s usually best to laugh. Audience members joined Patt Morrison and her guests on Tuesday, December 14th to laugh at the madness of it all—the truth hurts far less when it’s told by comedians. Special Guests: Greg Proops, regular actor & host of TV shows, movies and game shows—he is a regular performer on the American, British-original and touring versions of the improvisational show “Whose Line is it Anyway?”; he plays a recurring character on the HBO series “Flight of the Concords,” he’s the voice of the popular children’s series “Bob the Builder on PBS; and he is a regularly touring stand up comedian, coming to a comedy club near you! Alonzo Bodden, winner of season 3 of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and host of the new Speed Channel show “101 Cars You Must Drive,” regular performer and field correspondent for “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and guest star on several TV shows and movies.
