Laughing Affairs, founded by comedian Felicia Madison, presented Laughercise, a comedy show with a unique lunchtime format, on Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 from 12:00PM-1:30 PM at the West Side Comedy Club located at Playa Betty’s restaurant in New York City.
The event featured performances by comedians Jay Jurden, Olga Namer, Adrienne Iapalucci and Jessica Kirson, who each offered humorous reflections on topics as varied as modern technology, using dating apps, travelling and culture clashes, raising teenagers, marriage and recreational drug use. Between them, they have performed at locations such as David Letterman, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing and The Tonight Show.
Laughercise eschews the traditional late night environs of comedy clubs, instead treating guests to a one course meal, dessert, and glass of wine in the afternoon as both up-and-coming and veteran comedians take to the stage. Laughercise’s times and locations are perfect for comedy fans seeking laughs outside of the traditional late night, male-dominated clubs. Laughercise is a production of Felicia’s Laughing Affairs, which also produces daytime and evening comedy events for birthdays, showers, corporate gatherings and charitable causes.
