If you don’t want to be rendered the center of attention at a stand-up comedy performance, don’t sit ringside, and don’t admit you’ve been married 50 years.
One septuagenarian couple amiably found themselves setting the tone for the evening of sharp, PG-13-rated humor Sunday at Fritz Coleman’s 18th annual Comedy Night at the Glendale Centre Theatre. The event benefited the Glendale-Crescenta Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross.
Ron Farina, executive director of the Red Cross chapter, opened the performance, reminding the audience that the Red Cross had some not-so-funny responsibilities in August and September, maintaining shelters and evacuation centers during the Station fire. After thanking supporters and contributors, Farina introduced Coleman, and the rest of the evening was one of pretty much uninterrupted laughter.
