Event description

Description

LoHud Comedy was founded in 2010 for the purpose of bringing stand-up comedy to the Lower Hudson Valley. Since then, LoHud Comedy has presented both local and nationally-reknowned talent, including comedy legends and luminaries such as Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, and Gilbert Gottfried.

Andy Pitz (in his own words): "I’m a standup comedian based in New York City and I’ve been doing standup for over 20 years. I was born and raised in Buffalo NY, and I lived in Westchester for a number of years with our cat, a dog, and a baby girl. Not to mention my wife’s mom and her boyfriend also live with us. Yes, pretty brutal.

"I’ve been featured in Westchester Magazine and I’ve been on TV a number of times, highlighted by appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. I was also on Star Search but that was pretty lame. The other two shows were really fun and awesome experiences. Clips of those appearances are on my videos age and here’s the link to that video.

"The topics I talk about change all the time of course but lately I seem to be focusing on my marriage, fatherhood, technology / social networking and just everyday things that I get obsessed with."

The Journal News labeled Adam Oliensis as Rockland’s King of Comedy. Thumbtack.com has named him the #1 Comedian for Hire in New York for 2015, 2016, & 2017.

In his stand-up, Adam explores the lessons in humility he’s learning from his wife and especially from his children, along with the adjustments being forced on him by genuine adulthood. Having lived as a child in East Africa, studied martial arts in India, and languished spiritually in New Jersey, Adam is attuned to the absurdities that arise in the everyday, mining both the ironies and silliness that exist in the most humbling situations (with which he continues to gain vast experience, especially as a husband and a father).

Adam has recently opened for such comedy legends and luminaries as Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, Gilbert Gottfried, and Larry Miller. He performs at comedy clubs all over New York City and the surrounding area, including regularly at Gotham Comedy Club and Levity Live, as well as at Comic Strip Live, Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Also at colleges, corporate & private events, synagogues, theatres, and JCCs throughout the Northeast.

Tickets for this show are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. This benefit show is presented by Friends of Crawford Park and all proceeds go toward beautification of Crawford Park. Refreshments are available at the show, including beer and wine. Doors open at 7:00pm.
