For one night only, the LionHearted Players present The KONG SHOW: Thanks A Lot, and we have a pair of FREE tickets to give away!

Comment on this post, and one lucky winner’s name will be drawn out of a hat.  He or she will win two FREE tickets.  It’s as easy as that.

The KONG SHOW: Thanks A Lot! is a vaudeville-style comedy variety show that The Daily News calls a “slew of hip variety acts” and says is 'œpee-in-your-pants funny.”  Monday Nov. 23rd is the season finale of the series, and your last time to join Powell Leonard as your host Chuck E. Baby (channeling a hilarious impersonation of a Chuck Barris-like Gong Show TV host character). You’re gonna laugh your ass off!

Featuring the sketch comedy of the LionHearted Players: Vinny Anand, Lizzie Bell, Russell Bradley Bookert, Andrew Cordle, Bridget Dunn, Erik Graham, Michael Pichardo, Cathy Schramm, and Ann Marie Yoo. Plus, you’ll see the stand up comedy magic of Irish Dave Cremin, the comedy duo the Knuckleheads, and from VH1’s 'œBest Night Ever' special guest comedienne Mindy Raf.

Stay after the show for a reception to meet the performers and drink!  As Chuck E. Baby would say 'œGreat stuff!' and 'œThanks-A-Lot!'

Danielle was raised by a pack of coyotes in the Los Angeles hills. Since arriving in NY in 2001, she has had any number of strange jobs, including back-up singing for JELVIS (the Jewish Elvis), starting the non-profit LYDIA, and writing political cabarets. A huge advocate for travel as a way of life, you can find her at the Brooklyn Public Library when her bank account is empty, fantasizing about where to head off to next.
