Punch Line Philly to Host a Night of Comedy in Support of ArtWell
On Sunday, May 7th, Punch Line Philly (33 East Laurel Street) will be hosting a comedy event in support of ArtWell, an educational organization that guides Philadelphia’s youth by promoting creative expression through various forms of art. The show, entitled LaughWell, will feature comedian Jonathan Katz, who is perhaps best known for co-creating and starring in Comedy Central’s animated series Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist.
LaughWell will mirror the animated series, in which laid-back psychotherapist Dr. Katz counsels well-known comedians and actors. In the live performance, Jonathan Katz will reprise his role as the easygoing psychotherapist. His patients will be played by comedians Janelle James, Bonnie McFarlane and David Feldman. The show will also feature musical performances by Johnny Showcase and Rumi Kitchen.
“It is going to be a great night,” said Julia Terry, ArtWell’s program director and daughter of Jonathan Katz. “With all that is happening in our country and in the world, there is no doubt we could all use some good 21-and-over comic relief.”
The show will begin at 7PM. General admission tickets cost $35. Premium tickets cost $85 and entitle their holders to a voucher for food and drinks (also included in the cost of a general admission ticket), a VIP seat, an autograph from Jonathan Katz and access to a pre-show reception that will begin at 5:30PM. All proceeds will go to ArtWell. To purchase a ticket or to learn more about Artwell, visit theartwell.org.
