Join the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center as they host their 20th Annual Comedy Night celebration featuring comedian Paula Poundstone at the Fox Performing Art’s Center on Saturday, September 23, 2017.  The power of laughter is sure hard to shy away from and we know you will have a “ruff” time not laughing the “woof” off the building! So we ask you to join us in a night of laughter to help benefit dogs, cats, puppies and kittens residing at the Pet Adoption Center.

This year’s comedian, Paula Poundstone,

can be heard regularly on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!  When asked about Paula, Wait, Wait host Peter Sagal replied, "Paula Poundstone is the funniest human beings I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious.  She is made of funny.  If you chopped her into bits, each piece would be hilarious. (But don’t.) Air becomes funny having been breathed by her.” So grab your family and friends and get ready to be “cracked-up” at one of our funniest, but yet best events ever -  all for pets in need!
