“Mom!” is an outrageous comedy about Mothers. A daughter panics as she starts to realize she is becoming her mother, a son is interrupted in the most inopportune times on his wedding night, another daughter recalls special moments she’s had with her mother, and a mother tries to set her son up with the perfect woman, who turns out to be exactly like her.
Mystery Comedy. An eccentric heiress invites a number of guests to her home on the pretense of holding a backer’s audition for a new musical. But soon after they arrive, guests are picked off by the “Stage Door Slasher” and left to frantically solve the murders before they become the next victims.
Heading into its seventh year, Harbor House’s A Time to Laugh Dinner Gala and Comedy Night is our annual signature fundraising event, reminding us of the importance of laughter in the healing process for survivors of domestic abuse.
The event features comedienne Nancy Redman, a two-time prize winner on ABC’s "America’s Funniest People."
And speaking of funny people, have you ever wanted to try stand-up, but were afraid you’d be met with an unfriendly crowd or not enough material to get you through an entire show? Now’s your chance to put aside those fears and vie for your chance to win the title of “FOX VALLEY’S FUNNIEST.” Here’s how:
1. Create a 7-minute audition video with clean material only
2. Mail in your DVD by no later than Jan. 5, 2011, along with name, address, phone, e-mail and written reason why you’d be great for this competition (250-word max). Send to: Harbor House, Attn: Maria Turner - Fox Valley’s Funniest, 720 W. 5th St., Appleton, WI 54914.
3. Wait to be notified as to whether you will be one of three local comedians to perform their 7-minute acts as the warm-up for Nancy Redman.
4. Rally your friends to attend, as the winner will be selected by audience vote!
Not one to get on-stage? Join us in the audience instead! Tickets to the event are just $75 apiece, which includes sit-down dinner and stand-up show. Corporate sponsorships start at $1,500. An amazing raffle, centered around the theme of Milton Berle’s quote, “laughter is an instant vacation,” also will take place.
For an invitation to A Time to Laugh or for more information, please e-mail Communication and Development Coordinator Maria Turner at [email protected] or call (920) 955-9119.

Moshe Kasher is a comedian, and a Jew. A Jew comedian. He’s also a good tipper, a guiding light and a beefcake, if you ask him. He lives alone in Los Angeles. Smart, sharp, dirty and self-deprecating, Moshe has performed on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” E!’s “Chelsea Lately,” and at Jamie Foxx’s “Laffapalooza.” He’s featured on the Independent Film Channel, at Montreal Just for Laughs and won “Best of the Fest” at Aspen’s RooftopComedy Festival. iTunes named Moshe 2009’s Best New Comic for debut album “Everyone You Know is Going to Die, and Then You Are.”
Adam Richmond is a pro at giving people what they never knew they really wanted. In fact, by the time the comic delivers his last line, fans usually need a smoke. The comedian’s natural likability and penchant for high-energy antics quickly makes for unbridled hilarity, and his fearless stage presence has made him a favorite at clubs and college campuses nationwide. Adam has trained with Toronto’s Second City Improv and has appeared on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” Nickelodeon and Fox Sports Net.
Dwayne Kennedy’s satirical diversions and thought-provoking onstage anecdotes have launched him to a new level of social consciousness. One where his hysterical insights have gotten face time on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” “The Late Show with David Letterman” (twice), Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and BBC’s “The World Stands Up.” Not to mention a half-hour special on Showtime and Comedy Central Presents, and roles on TV shows like Seinfeld and Martin.
If you can dream it, Vince Carone can hate it. A “ranting blue-collar rep for America’s true voice,” Vince grew up an outside-the-box, quasi-jock, class-clown type. Performing since 2001, the comedian is known for his fast-talking quick wit and chaos of cathartic complaints. The road warrior’s years of touring the country culminated in his debut stand-up DVD, “Now Will You Wear a Condom,” in 2007.
