Latin American Youth Center Comedy Night

The Latin American Youth Center is hosting a benefit comedy night next week and you're invited! The non-profit is located in Columbia Heights and serves youth from all over the capital area. You may be familiar with their educational efforts such as the Art + Media House on 15th Street or SES tutoring program, but LAYC also provides workforce preparation, social services and does advocacy work. They reach over 4,000 people each year. Proceeds from the show will go to LAYC programming.

The comedians are donating their time and comedic efforts and the location is not far from LAYC, at GALA Hispanic Theatre, 3333 14th St NW (Tivoli building). The show is next Wednesday March 7 and will be hosted by morning radio show host Pedro Biaggi. Performing will be comedian-musician Adam Dodd, with stand up comedians Pete Bladel, Ayanna Dookie, and Jasiel Ayala. Doors open at 6:00PM and show starts at 7:00PM. Tickets are $20 and check out the LAYC event page to order and for more information. Support this great cause and have a few laughs while you're at it. Have a great weekend!
