Comedy Night 2016

Join us for our 19th Annual Comedy Night celebration at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium on Saturday, September 17, 2016. No one is immune to the power of laughter. And we’ll use this powerful tool to help care for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens residing at the PetAdoption Center until a forever home is found.

This year’s comedian, Tom Papa, who was personally chosen by Jerry Seinfeld, hosted the NBC series, The Marriage Ref, which ran for two season. Tom also had a recurring role opposite Julia Louis-Dreufus on the CBS series, The New Adventure of Old Christine and starred in his own NBC series, Come to Papa. Tom is a regular guest on The Conan Show and now tom is coming to Riverside. So grab your friends and family and get ready to be “cracked-up” at one of our funniest events ever all for pets in need!

Riverside Municipal Auditorium is located at 3495 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside.
