The Centenary Stage Company will host the 2015 Comedy Night fundraiser for the Hackettstown-Mansfield PBA (Local 369) on Saturday, June 6 at 7:00 PM in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Center.    “New Jersey’s Bad Boy” Mike Marino (photo right) will headline the night’s entertainment, which will be hosted by comedian Bob Gonzo, and will open with “The Reverend” Bob Levy.

NJ Comedy  Hall  of Famer  Mike Marino has performed in every major comedy club from New York to Los Angeles, and has worked with some of the biggest names in the business.  He currently can be seen nightly as a headliner in such legendary clubs as  The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store in Hollywood.    With appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “The Martin Short Show,”   the “Rascals Comedy Hour” and many more, Marino was inducted in the NJ Comedy Hall of Fame in 2008.   

The annual PBA Comedy Night raises funds for local community initiatives, such as the DARE program,  the Special Olympics, Teen Nights, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, the annual Christmas toy drive for needy families and the food bank.  Funds from Comedy Night are also dedicated to scholarships for local high school students.     A  Silent Auction will be held throughout the evening to further support the many programs funded by the Hackettstown-Mansfield  PBA-local 369.      The PBA Comedy Night Fundraiser is led by Detective Aaron Perkins and Sgt. Darren Tynan of the Hackettstown Police Department.
