‘Funny and fabulous’ Ladies of Laughter return

Ladies of Laughter, the popular showcase of female standup comedians, will have their first performance of the 2017-2018 season at the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage in Johnson City, Saturday, October 21 at 7pm. The performance will feature three comedians: Teri Granahan, Meghan Hanley, and Mary Radzinski.

Tickets are $15, and can be purchased online at goodwilltheatre.net or by calling the Box Office at (607) 772-2404, ext. 301. Ladies of Laughter is sponsored by the Oakdale Mall, and underwritten by the Schorr Family; and may not be appropriate for anyone under 18 years old.

“Ladies of Laughter, or LOL as we like to call it, is one of our most in-demand series,” said Naima Kradjian, Goodwill Theatre CEO. “Last season, we sold out three of the four LOL events, so get your tickets before they’re gone!”
