2nd Annual "Live at the Orinda" Champagne Comedy Event to Launch March 11th

Six Acclaimed Comedians to Deliver Side-Splitting Laughs

ORINDA, CA--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - For the second year, San Francisco's East Bay area lovers of laughter will have the renewed opportunity to join a champagne-filled night of comedy at the landmark Orinda Theatre on Friday, March 11th. The Orinda Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Tommy T's Comedy Clubs and The Lamorinda Film & Entertainment Foundation today announced plans for the second "Live at the Orinda" event. Last year's event gained rave reviews, perhaps topped by "Orinda ain't Borinda anymore."

The evening of fun will start with a reception at 7:00 p.m. with champagne and white wine for purchase, followed by laugh-packed performances from six comedians starting at 8:00 p.m. A brief intermission will be provided for attendees to regain composure and refill their refreshments. Featured comedians will be Ed Tracey, Dan St. Paul, Vic Dunlop, G. King, John Fox, and Denny Johnston -- all highly acclaimed masters of comedy.

"Last year's event had great reviews by attendees," said Rick Kattenburg, Chamber Director in Charge of this event and its originator. "We have only professional comedians, most from within the Bay Area, and Tommy of "Tommy T's Comedy Clubs" has been indispensible in again helping gather a great slate of comics. This will be one great date night, so come on out and laugh 'till it hurts!"

Advanced discounted performance tickets at $30.00 may be reserved in advance until March 10th using a major credit card at the Orinda Chamber of Commerce web site --, or at First Republic Bank, 224 Brookwood Road. Tickets at the door (if available) will be $35.00 per person. Champagne and other refreshments will be available for separate purchase. A portion of any profits from the event will benefit local non-profit organizations. Advanced reservations will be limited to 700 ticket holders, so attendees are encouraged to reserve early.

The Chamber's goal is again to delight more than 700 participants -- aged 17 and older -- as they enjoy the classic surroundings of an Art Deco Masterpiece Theatre and an evening of friendship rediscovering the magic of laughter.
