Event description

Description

Please join Newton at Home as we host Jimmy Tingle for a night of humor, healing, hope and humanity.

In addition to the featured presentation by Jimmy, we will be conducting a live auction (with Jimmy as the auctioneer) that promises some very attractive prizes, including Red Sox tickets and a one week's stay in a beautiful Martha's Vineyard home. Prior to the performance, we will be serving hors d'oeuvres and beer and wine.

And who is Jimmy Tingle, you might ask? Jimmy, a Massachusetts native (born in Cambridge, in fact) has had a career spanning three decades, as a comedian, writer, actor, activist, producer and entrepreneur. Jimmy has even had the privilege of giving the commencement address at Harvard University! Jimmy's body of work includes contributions to 60 Minutes on CBS, appearances on The Tonight Show, CNN, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and in his own comedy special on HBO, among others.

Tingle has the rare distinction of winning Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” awards in two different categories-as a performer in the “stand-up comedy” category and the venue he founded and served as artistic director- producer Jimmy Tingle’s OFF BROADWAY, was named “best alternative theater” in 2007.

Now, in Jimmy's latest endeavor, Humor for Humanity, Jimmy is using comedy, commentary and conversation through social media, radio, television and live events to raise spirits, funds and awareness for non profits, charities and social causes - such as Newton at Home! Humor for Humanity uses humor for purposes beyond entertainment to help make meaningful change in the world.

We hope you'll join us for what promises to be a truly special night!
