Virtual tickets are also available to watch from home. Veteran comic Jessica Kirson is a powerhouse on stage. Jessica's act is a hilariously relatable performance of sheer silliness, vulnerability and ridiculous characters. Her countless comedic character videos have racked up over 30 million views on social media. Her audience is multi-generational creating an excuse for large groups of friends and families to spend a night out together.

Christine O'Leary has worked with the top comedians at The Ridgefield Playhouse including Gilbert Gottfried, Joy Behar, Susie Essman, Chevy Chase, Sinbad and Tracy Morgan, just to name a few. O'Leary, who also teaches comedy, is bringing her top students to kick off the show!
