Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers has announced that its next Latkes and Laughs will be held on Saturday, August 22 at 7 p.m. at Ben’s of Scarsdale, located at 718 Central Park Avenue, featuring comedians Tom Daddario, Joanna Rapoza and Roy Schaeffer. The event costs $40 per person for the show and a prix-fixe dinner with dessert and soda; tax and gratuity are also included.

A 15-year veteran of the New York City comedy scene, Mr. Daddario exhibits a unique and refreshing energy on stage, with an interesting twist on his family, friends, and relationships. With previous appearances at some of the region’s top clubs – including Stand Up New York, Dangerfield’s, The Laugh Factory, Carolines on Broadway, and The Comedy Cellar, as well as many local casinos – the comedian has been recognized for his his reliability, strong writing skills and consistently robust performances.

Ms. Rapoza, a voice-over actress, has been performing standup since her 2011 graduation from Caroline’s School of Comedy at Carolines on Broadway. An avid blogger and “novella” writer, Ms. Rapoza touches on a variety of topics, including her life in Maine.

Named Jewish Week’s “Funniest Jewish Comic,” Mr. Schaeffer is first and foremost an insurance broker from Rye Brook, New York. His show focuses on his struggle with weight loss and his continued, and failed, efforts to get his wife to diet with him.

Dinner will be served first, with the performances to follow. A full-service bar is available and drinks can be purchased at an additional cost. Reservations are required.
