Thank you for a hilarious night off!

Friends,

In a night full of laughs, Tanenbaum’s annual comedy show supports a cause that is deadly serious. Together, we had a great night as everyone from lawyers to race car drivers laughed together, at what is happening in the world, at ourselves, and with each other! Have a look at our photo gallery to glimpse the fun!

With jokes on every aspect of society including the perils of growing older and white privilege, Eric Neumann, Akash Bhasin, Sasha Srbulj, DF Sweedler and our very own Holly H. Weiss, put on a fantastic show! Tanenbaum thanks each and every one of them for keeping us in stitches the whole night!  

Once again, Tanenbaum Takes a Night Off proved that laughter is food for the soul!

Joyce S. Dubensky
CEO, Tanenbaum

P.S.: Special thanks to Mike Rakosi, who again partnered with us to bring this show to you and who helps it grow year after year. Huge thanks to our partners, Whole Foods Market for the fabulous food and Comic Strip Live.

Thanks again and always to our generous sponsors, Dr. Georgette F. Bennett & Dr. Leonard Polonsky CBE, Foa & Son Corp., Karlinsky LLC, John Miller, Sara Pandolfi & Co., Marni & Jeremy Selman, Ari Storch, Holly H. Weiss and Mary Jane Brock. And a huge Thank You to our fantastic inaugural Comedy Show Host Committee!

Thank You for a Great Night Off!

The room was full of old friends and some new, with lots of jabs at biases – racial, religious, sexual orientation, and the like. We had the opportunity to laugh at what society teaches us, and at how we cope with hatred in the world. The night gave us the opportunity to share a little more about Tanenbaum, to honor our oldest and dearest friend (and colleague) the Octogenarian Judy Banki, and to recognize our visiting Peacemaker, Reverend Jacky Manuputty from Indonesia.

We hope you’ll enjoy the gallery below from Tanenbaum Takes a Night Off! With Mike Rakosi Tanenbaum’s second annual comedy show at Comic Strip Live. Much like last year, Mike brought in some hilarious comedians, from our own backyard and Dylan Brody from LA, who lit up the stage with their wit.

From cursed tomato gardens to mockery of cultural and religious bias, Indidi, Sasha, DF and Dylan all put on a great show—and we thank them for their willingness to perform for Tanenbaum! Also, our special thanks to Mike Rakosi for hosting the evening and helping to plan the event.

Thanks to our sponsors, Dr.’s Georgette F. Bennett and Leonard S. Polonsky CBE, Stanton Public Relations and Marketing, and Michael Kessler and Marcia Riklis. And our partners, Whole Foods Market, dcc, and the Comic Strip Live. Without you, none of this would have been possible!

This is a night of fun, supporting a cause that is deadly serious. Make a note. And plan to join us next year! In the meantime, enjoy this album from the 2016 show!
