Candidates' Comedy Night

Improv at the Waterfront, Homestead


Join the crowd on Wednesday, August 13 for another evening of side-splitting comedy!

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. The fun starts at 7:30 p.m. 

 Come.  Laugh.  Help Children. 

CCN 2014 logoCandidates’ Comedy Night 2014 will once again bring political candidates for races of local interest in the spotlight for an evening of fun and fund-raising. Most candidates perform a stand-up routine. Others sing or dance or play a musical instrument. Candidates’ Comedy Night 2013 raised nearly $40,000 to support the Allegheny County Music Festival Fund (ACMFF). We are thankful for all the support from the local community to help children reach their full potential.

Pennsylvania voters have chosen candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, U.S. House of Representatives, and more. We’ll invite these executive and legislative candidates to take the stage at the Pittsburgh Improv, telling jokes, singing songs, and raising funds for a great cause!
