Scranton Comedy Club opens at Ramada Inn in Clarks Summit on Oct. 7
From a press release:
Shows will be every Saturday night at 8 p.m. starting on Oct. 7. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for those who would like to enjoy dinner before the show.
Each show at the club (820 Northern Blvd., Clarks Summit) will be headlined by nationally touring comedians who play at the top comedy clubs, casinos, resorts, and colleges across the country and have appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime, Netflix, “Last Comic Standing,” “America’s Got Talent,” Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, and more.
Scranton Comedy Club will also have rotating house emcees that will include Northeastern Pennsylvania’s funniest talents. These hosts will include John Walton, who won Season 2 of NEPA Scene’s Got Talent and was a finalist in the 2017 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas; Will “Half & Half” Robbins, who has authored two books, “Ice” and “The Big Payback;” and Mike Grady, who has performed at most of the top New York City comedy clubs. The shows will also feature up-and-coming comedians.
Tickets will be available online at scrantoncomedy.eventbrite.com and at the door. Prices are two for $20 for the first 20 sales, then $15 each online or $20 at the door each week. Those who do not wish to buy online and still save $5 off at the door can visit scrantoncomedyclub.com and display the $5 off coupon on their phones at the door. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made by calling 570-357-2693 after 5 p.m. The website will also feature the lineups of who will be performing.
The Scranton Comedy Club will also offer a great no-cost way for nonprofit groups to raise money for their organizations. Organizations can select a week to sell tickets for $15 to a show. For up to 50 tickets sold, the organization will receive $7 a ticket and, if they sell more than 50, they keep $8 from each sale. The Ramada will also donate 10 percent of the sales from food and drinks for the night to the organization. Groups can also arrange for raffles at the show as well.
