SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 2023 @ 8PM | COMEDY | $32

An evening of stand up at the Emelin, featuring:

Dan Naturman

Dan's combination of self-deprecation and outright grouchiness has earned him spots on "The Tonight Show," "Late Show with David Letterman" (four times) and "The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson" as well as his own Comedy Central Presents special. In 2014 Dan was the only comedian voted into the semi-finals of "America's Got Talent."

Joe Larson

Joe Larson has been seen on "Gotham Comedy Live," "America's Got Talent" and ""The Tonight Show's" Laugh Squad. He has been nominated for a prestigious MAC Award for "Best Up-And-Coming Comedian" and was a finalist in both the Johnny Carson Great American Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival and appeared in the film Stand Up 360.

Shaun Eli

Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America's smartest comics. For just about anything he's experienced he has hilarious stories at the ready. With a sense of humor that's both cheerful and universal Shaun has headlined shows on five continents. In 2021 he was the recipient of a major profile in The New York Times. The Emelin is proud to be a grantee of ArtsWestchester with funding for our 2022-2023 Comedy Series made possible by Westchester County government with the support of County Executive George Latimer.



Suzanne Vega

SUNDAY, APRIL 30, 2023 @ 7:30PM | FOLK | TICKETS $77/$67/$57 | VIP PACKAGES: $115 - $195

Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s when, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, she sang what has been called contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs. Notably succinct and understated, her work is immediately recognizable - as utterly distinct and thoughtful today, as it was when her voice was first heard on the radio over 30 years ago.
