Hoboken Elks Comedy Night Returns to Aid Hurricane Sandy Recovery Efforts

Elks Comedy Night Hoboken 12-14-2012 Hurricane Sandy

Standup comedy is coming back to the Hoboken Elks Lodge on Friday, December 14, 2012. This show  features several of New York City’s funniest comedians. Proceeds from this event will go to the Elks Relief Fund, which will help Hoboken recover from Hurricane Sandy. (Tickets are $20. Doors open at 7pm; the show starts at 8pm. The Lodge is located at 1005 Washington Street, in Hoboken.)

Susie Felber, who has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the MTV and Oxygen networks and is a frequent co-host on Sirius XM Radio will act as Emcee. Susie knows the stage at the Hoboken Elks Lodge well, having played the role as both host and performer. Anton Shuford will be the headliner. Anton’s based in Philadelphia and has been performing since 2005. He’s a regular at the local venues, but his gigs aren’t limited to Philly. He’s making his name, from Hartford to North Carolina, and within the span of his short career he has become one of the busiest comics on the circuit. Since the Helium Comedy Club (Philadelphia) opened in 2005, Anton went from doing five minutes at open mics, to receiving his first break when he opened for Patrice O’Neil, which led to to featuring for comics like Louis CK.

The show also features comedians Chris DeLuca, Adam Wade  and Ritch Duncan. Chris has performed stand-up for years in the NYC area, and is a writer for The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The Best Week Ever. He also created, wrote and starred in the hilarious, and subversive “Mocap, LLC” on Spike TV and currently writes for MTV’s “The Substitute”. Adam Wade has been performing comedy  in New York City for the past ten years. He is an 18-time StorySLAM Champion at The Moth (voted “New York’s hottest and hippest literary ticket” by The Wall Street Journal), and a 2-time GrandSLAM Champion (2006, 2009). He’s also appeared on Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre’s Asssscat 3000, Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen, Big Terrific, Pretty Good Friends, The Nights of Our Lives, The Rejection Show, Told, The Liar Show, Mortified, Stripped Stories, and The RISK Show. Ritch Duncan was a regular at the Third Fridays comedy show in NYC;  he’s also the co-author of “The Werewolf’s Guide To Life: A Manual For The Newly Bitten” released by Broadway Books.

It will be two hours of non-stop laughs. Bring your friends and have a great night out. Doors at the Lodge will open at 7 PM. Show starts at 8 PM.

FBW Parks in Peril Fundraiser Tuesday December 11th, 2012 at 7pm

Filed under: fundraiser,Hoboken,Washington Street — Tags: , , , — TheBoken @ 10:50 AM
The Fund for a Better Waterfront, a Hoboken advocacy group for Parks has announced the new date for their Hoboken’s Waterfront Parks in Peril fundraiser. The revised date is Tuesday December 11 and the event starts at 7pm. Here is their brief note below:
“Please join the Fund for a Better Waterfront and the Eastern Environmental Law Center (EELC) on Tuesday, December 11, 2012, 7 PM for our Hoboken’s Waterfront Parks in Perilfundraising event at the Elks Club. FBW with legal representation from EELC has been working overtime to avert a series of proposals that would be disastrous for Hoboken and its waterfront:

  • Shipyard Associates have proposed the Monarch project, two high-rise towers on a pier where they had agreed to create open space. Read more.
  • The owners of Union Dry Dock are selling this prime waterfront site. An attempt by NJ Transit to purchase for shuttle bus parking and ferry repair/refueling has just been thwarted. Read more.
  • The State Assembly is now considering a bill that would exempt Stevens Institute from all local zoning and planning regulations. Read more.
  • And NJ Transit has proposed a series of high-rise towers on several superblocks at the south end of town. Read more.

We can remedy these ill-conceived proposals but need your support to do so. We have invited several speakers and there will, of course, be food, drink and entertainment. This will be a fun-filled event for a serious cause.

This benefit is to support the work of the Fund for a Better Waterfront (FBW) and the Eastern  Environmental Law Center (EELC), originally scheduled for November 13, is now on for Tuesday, December 11. Buy your tickets today.  Members should be receiving our letter/invitation in the mail. Don’t be confused by the old date (new date on outside label) — Hurricane Sandy arrived as the mailing was set to go out. In addition to working on remedies for the next disaster in Hoboken, FBW with legal assistance from EELC has been working overtime to avert a series of disastrous proposals that will impact Hoboken and its waterfront. The event will be held at the Elks Club, 1005 Washington Street, Hoboken beginning at 7 p.m. “
