About us

Origins

In March of 2013 Yorktown Masonic Lodge #1154 needed an exciting fundraiser. Lodge Brother Frank Pellegrino suggested comedy. He got in contact with Vic Dibitetto, Tommy Gooch, and Maureen Langan who all gave generous advice, input, and suggestions. The fundraiser was a raving success! The popularity of the event encouraged long time friend Adam Eliassof to encourage another show, but this time just for fun.

In December 2013 and January 2014 they threw two exciting shows on at Lucy’s Lounge in Pleasantville, NY. The two shows at Lucy’s Lounge were highlighted with headliners Johnny Watson and Sean Donnelly (respectively).

It was in the midst of these two shows that fellow Yorktown Lodge Brother, Rich DeLayo, express his passion for comedy and offered his expertise in finance and business and the team was born.

After over 100 shows and having worked with over 200 different stand up comedians, Frank and Rich continue to grow, expand, and improve the blossoming comedy community throughout the area. Tom Grossi was added to the team in 2016, and the team continues to produce high quality shows into 2017!
