Phoenix Houses of New England will present Phoenix House Comedy Night on Friday, September 16, 2011, in the MassMutual Room at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, 1000 Hall of Fame Avenue, Springfield, MA 01105. Beginning at 6:00 PM, this fun-filled evening will begin with a reception and silent auction of items donated by local businesses and individuals. These will be followed by a gourmet dinner courtesy of Max’s Catering and a hilarious performance by three nationally recognized comedians. Proceeds from the event ─ originally scheduled on June 18 but postponed after the devastating Springfield tornadoes ─ support Phoenix House’s commitment to people in Western Massachusetts who are struggling to overcome substance abuse.
The highlight of Phoenix House Comedy Night will be a ninety-minute performance by three outstanding comedians: Tony V, Ophira Eisenberg, and Tom McTiernan. Tony V, one of New England’s most frequently requested comedians, has been performing for more than 25 years and has made television appearances on series such as Seinfeld, Boston Common, The Single Guy, and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Calgary native Ophira Eisenberg performs regularly at renowned comedy clubs all over the world, and has appeared on Comedy Central, VH-1, E!, the Oxygen Network, the Discovery Channel, and on her own half-hour comedy special. Tom McTiernan has performed in the nation’s top comedy clubs and has been called “one of the sharpest comics in New York.”
