Funny ladies lead laughs Saturday night at Roxbury
Roxbury — Two of New York’s funniest women will bring their comedic gifts to The Roxbury Arts Center on Saturday, July 17, at 7:30 in an evening that’s sure to leave the audience in stitches.
Angela La Greca (“Riotous …” NY Post) and Julie Halston (“The funniest woman in town,” NY Observer) promise an evening full of hilarity and surprises. They will engage with the audience in a Q and A following the performance.
Julie Halston is one of the busiest actress/comediennes working today. She was last seen on network television in the CBS sitcom “The Class” but is most recognized as Bitsy Von Muffling from “Sex and The City.” Younger viewers will be able to see her soon as Antigone Carruthers on the new PBS show “The Electric Company.”
Well-known to theatre audiences, she was last seen on Broadway in “Hairspray” after receiving rave reviews (as well as receiving Drama Desk and Drama League nominations) for her performance in William Hamilton’s “White Chocolate.”
Angela LaGreca has always worn many hats . . . Comedian. Singer. Writer. Actress. Producer. Angela is the winner of six consecutive MAC awards (NYC’s ‘Oscar’ for outstanding live performance) in the Outstanding Comedienne, Musical Comedy, and Variety Show categories. She has performed everywhere from Carolines comedy club to Carnegie Hall, and has played to rave reviews and sold-out shows in top clubs, theatrical venues and corporate settings—from Feinstein’s, the Algonquin, and Town Hall to venues in Atlantic City, Palm Beach, and Tahiti.
In addition to her career as a comedian, singer, and writer, Angela is currently a producer at NBC’s “Today”—the country’s top-rated morning news show, co-anchored by Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira. For nine years Angela was with ABC-TV’s “The View,” first as the regular audience warmup personality, and then as a staff writer, writing and producing the show’s popular “Hot Topics’ segments with Meredith Vieira, the show’s moderator.
Angela writes most of her own standup and stories, and often collaborates with others to write songs. She has written for the National Lampoon Radio Hour, where she recorded sketches and voiceovers with Richard Beltzer, Jon Lovitz and Chris Malone.
