Spend the evening doubled over in laughter at Laugh Lounge 45 with comedian, writer, actor and director Mike Birbiglia! This benefit fundraiser celebrating two Napa nonprofits 45th anniversaries will be the event of the season. The evening will include Mike’s hilarious performance, exclusive raffle prizes of Napa Valley experiences and an after party to end the evening in style.
Mike Birbiglia is called a “master of the personal, embarrassing tale,” by Time Magazine and The New York Times describes him as a “supremely enjoyable monologist.” Known for his one-of-a-kind storytelling style in the world of standup comedy, Birbiglia has been critically acclaimed for numerous shows including “My Secret Public Journal Live,” “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend,” and his most recent show, “Thank God for Jokes,” which toured in over 100 cities. He can also be seen in Orange is the New Black as Danny Pearson, as well as Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, The Fault in Our Stars, and his own films, Sleepwalk With Me and Don’t Think Twice. See Birbiglia online at www.birbigs.com or twitter.com/birbigs.
The evening doesn’t end when the jokes do! Following the performance, guests can attend the Laugh Lounge 45 After Party sponsored by Silicon Valley Bank. The after party will include DJ Jake Lake, dancing, Napa Valley desserts, wines and cocktails. Keep an eye out for the Secret Sidestreet Speakeasy (limited entry can be purchased that evening only).
Laugh Lounge 45 is the 45th anniversary celebration and fundraiser for two Napa-based nonprofit organizations: Aldea Children & Family Services (www.aldeainc.org) and Cope Family Center (www.copefamilycenter.org). Founded in 1972, both agencies began working to address the growing need for child abuse prevention and mental health services in the Napa Valley. Although much has changed over the last 45 years, both agencies continue to work together to better support their communities’ needs, serving over 10,000 families annually.
