HOW IT ALL CAME ABOUT
Senior Comedy Afternoons came about in response to a daughter’s desire to please and more importantly amuse her 91 year-old mother! The story being...my husband and I had taken her out to a comedy club for an evening's entertainment and she just hated it..! She just couldn't relate to the young comedians and the language being used and so..I got to thinking! Why not create something just for Seniors..?
The elements that needed to be satisfied were an afternoon time frame in a nightclub setting, a nice meal served before the show and comedians that would serve up their humor fast and positively funny!.....with comedy she could relate to!
And so, a few dozen auditions later, a club to perform in and some generous publicity from Los Angeles television station KABC Channel 7 and the Orange County Register, and Senior Comedy Afternoons was born!
My Mom.. and inspiration.. Yetta Schachter!
She's got quite a sense of humor as you can see from the card my husband Emile created for her for her 85th... so I thought I'd share it with you
Who doesn't want to make their Mom laugh!?
