Come out and see Elayne’s full ninety-minute evening of standup. She performs non-stop comedy suitable for everyone and touching on all the subjects of the day.
Elayne Boosler performs her original composition (book – Elayne, music – Carol Worthey) “Rescue – A True Story“, which had its debut at the Glendale Philharmonic. Commissioned by Glendale Phil director and world renowned cellist Ruslan Biryukov, Ruslan will again be playing amazing cello for this performance. We are proud to be invited to grace this beautiful new concert venue.

A benefit with Paul Reiser and a host of stars to help with medical expenses for the incredibly wonderful comedian/writer/producer/friend Wendy Hammers.
Elayne hosts the once-a-year gala for L.A.’s Stray Cat Alliance. Held at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, the evening promises to be a fantastic night of fun. There will be Stray Catinis, tarot readers, animal psychics, amazing food and drink, games, magicians, live and silent auctions, a great show and awards. Most importantly, the evening raises the funds needed for Stray Cat Alliance to continue its important work of spaying/neutering stray cats and preventing lives of hardship and danger on the streets. They’ve already spayed/neutered 16,000 cats, preventing the suffering and death of unwanted and homeless animals. They also help feed the feral colonies once the spayed/neutered cats are returned to their packs. Come help celebrate their 15th year of building a no-kill nation, one cat at a time.
What a great night this is going to be. Eight finalists competing for the (11th) Andy Kaufman Award, 2015. Past winners include Kristin Schaal and Reggie Watts.

Set List Live – Standup Comedy Without a Net. Comics are given outrageous, never-before-seen topics in the moment, and perform as if it was the material they meant to do. Both the comic and the audience see the topics for the first time on the onstage screen and thus begins the most exciting, edge-of-your seat stand-up show.
