From a press release:

New York City comedian Olivia Grace, known for her appearances and writing on Comedy Central, will headline a night of stand-up comedy at The Keys in Scranton on Friday, March 15.

Fellow New York comic Lizzy Cassidy will open with locals Elliott Elliott and Angelia Petrillo, who will also host the 21+ show.

Doors at The Keys (244 Penn Ave., Scranton) open at 8 p.m., and the show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets, which are $5, are on sale now via Eventbrite and can also be purchased at the door. For more details, see the Facebook event page.

Olivia Grace is a stand-up comedian who grew up in the suburbs of Orange County, California.

She made a name for herself as a roaster in the Belly Room of the World Famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles when she was too young to legally enter the 21+ venue. Grace quickly became a staple of the growing “Roast Battle” phenomena and was featured in a documentary short about the show directed by Jason Reitman that premiered at Sundance in 2016. She performed on all three seasons of “Jeff Ross Presents: Roast Battle” on Comedy Central.

Most recently, Grace was a writer for the 2018 “Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis.” She has also participated in the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and the New York Comedy Festival.

When not doing stand-up in New York or Los Angeles, she can be seen performing in various bars, clubs, and living rooms across the United States.

This Scranton show is presented by Streetkar Comedy, which produces some of the most exciting and unique comedy shows and events in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
