Lass Your Aff Off! Stand-up Comedy

April 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

How do you follow the explosion of Lass Your Aff Off! comedy that occurred at Z Playhouse in Mission Viejo in March?  You light another fuse and wait for a funny night of exciting entertainment to begin!  On Saturday April 15th we are proud to bring one of our all-time favorites to The Z, James P. Connolly, and you’re not going to want to miss the fun.

James attended Harvard University on a Marine Corps ROTC Scholarship. While serving in Desert Storm, he was ordered to write jokes for a Colonel. Arriving in Hollywood, he began to perform at LA’s major comedy venues and soon popped up on television, commercials and in small films.  He has appeared on America’s Got Talent, Comedy Central, HBO, in the new Netflix series, “Larry Charles: Dangerous World of Comedy”, and on the Audible Audio Documentary, “Strong Ending”. Most recently James completed his Dry Bar comedy special. James can be heard daily on SiriusXM Comedy Channels, has hosted “Live From Here” for National Lampoon XM Radio, and recorded a “Blue Collar Radio Comedy Concert” for SiriusXM, He produces an annual Veterans Day Comedy Show benefiting the Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP).

Joining James and making her first appearance at The Z is the very funny Amanda Cohen. Amanda is a middle-age single woman who is definitely nobody’s mom. She’s your best nightmare: a fearless feminist with a sharp sense of irony who will challenge your assumptions about women of a certain age, while still relating to all ages. She’s hosted, showcased, featured, and headlined all over the U.S. She was a finalist in the U.S. Comedy Competition and also a finalist in the Clean Comedy Challenge in Carson City, NV.

Also gracing our Lass Your Aff Off! stage in April will be Jennifer Arundale. Jennifer is an actor, comedian, producer and DIY mom.  Jennifer performs regularly at The Irvine Improv, The Comedy Store, The Rec Room, Flappers and a variety of Country Clubs and Resorts and was a finalist in the Funniest Housewives competition and a semifinalist in the Jeanne Robertson Humor Contest.

Hosting this comedy extravaganza is OC’s very own Bill Word! Bill has been doing standup comedy since 1991 and performs at the Improv and Laugh Factory and throughout OC & LA. Bill has been featured on “ABC’s America’s Funniest People.” And you may have seen him on NBC, TLC and PBS. Bill was a panelist in the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and has been featured on National Lampoon Comedy Radio numerous times.

This is going to be an amazing night of comedy, so please don’t miss it, and don’t attend alone.  You’re going to need someone to help you up when you fall on the floor laughing.
