Alan Driscoll: “War Dogs”

July 22, 2015 by Beth Colt

War Dogs have been a part of this country’s military since the early days of World War II.  Unfortunately, the general public knows very little about either their history or the sacrifices and contributions they have made on behalf of the United States.  War Dogs have been responsible for saving thousands of soldier’s lives and the protection of millions of dollars of critical equipment.  In many cases the deeds of these K9 partners are only remembered by their handlers and will, in most cases, be lost to future history.

Nancy Witter: Hot Flash Laughs

July 21, 2015 by Beth Colt

Live from New York!  Comedienne Nancy Witter presents “Hot Flash Laughs” – one night only.  It’s stand up for Ladies Night!

About Nancy:  I grew up in a very large Irish “Cathaholic” family.  It gave me all the comedic material I needed to sustain me throughout my comedy career. It helped me win three New York City MAC Awards for “Outstanding Female Comedian” and a MAC Award for my one woman show “Dignity Check… Please”.  One of my big breaks was being one of five finalist on Nick at Nite’s “Search for the Funniest Mom in America” in 2005.  Soon after, I joined two other finalists and for five years we toured in sold out theaters across the country in the hit comedy show “Mama’s Night Out”.   “The New York Times” has described me as having “a razor sharp wit”  and Backstage Magazine named me to their list of “Comedy Best Bets”.
