Comedian Kit Rivers.
The Adirondack Comedy Club will present a mostly female show titled “Giggles for Girls” to support the Girl Scouts in Champlain/Mooers.
The show will begin at 8 p.m. on April 27 at the Rouses Point American Legion, 29 Pratt Street.
Performances will include Adirondack Comedy Club organizer Ray Wayman, with special appearance by comedian Carmen Lagala, Autumn Engroff Spencer and headliner Kit Rivers, who promise to give the girlish giggles in their original sets.
Wayman has produced several comedy shows at the American Legion. The upcoming fundraiser will help raise money for the troop to go to New York City at the end of the year. Wayman said they have been doing fundraisers since the fall of last year.
“The show is called ‘Giggles for Girls.’ I think it’ll be more fun than a spaghetti feed and a whole lot less messy,” said Wayman. “At least no one will get stains on their blouse, unless they spill a beer!”
The comedy show will offer people in Rouses Point a chance to hear top comedians and enjoy a show close to home, Wayman said.
“This will be the fourth comedy show that I have produced at the American Legion and they always have a good turnout,” said Wayman. “It’s a fundraiser that is fun and a whole lot less boring than a craft fair, spaghetti feed, bake sale or shaking down grandma’s couch for spare nickels.”
The show will feature an array of acts and a plethora of material. Wayman, a native of Rouses Point, has performed throughout Vermont and the Adirondacks. He uses his observational skills to make light of the crazy world he lives in and shares his twisted perspective with his audience.
Lagala is a native Vermonter and UVM graduate. In addition to managing LEVITY, Vermont’s only comedy club, Carmen performs comedy all over the state, but still does laundry at her mom’s house.
Autumn Engroff Spencer has performed in various venues in and around Vermont. Spencer lives in Burlington with her husband, children, and more cats than she cares to admit.
Headliner, Rivers, will bring her plucky brand of comedy ad improv comedy to the stage. The Evansville, Indiana native will bring some spoken word humor and sometimes raunchy humor for the community to enjoy.
Rivers recently open for David Koechner from the movie Anchorman, was a finalist at the Higher Ground Comedy Battle, and competed in New England’s Funniest Comic competition. Rivers is currently studying theatre at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, VT and performs stand up in and around the Burlington area.
Tickets are $10 at the door. Doors open at 7:30 and the show is at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at https://adirondackcomedyclub.ticketbud.com/rpvalentine or at the American Legion.
