On February 28, comedians Ryan Hamilton, Andy Kindler, Jordan Temple, and Tom Thakkar provided the laughs for a packed house as the Brooklyn Autism Center (BAC) celebrated its tenth anniversary at the Stand-Ups Give BAC show at Carolines on Broadway.  It marked the ninth consecutive year the event was held at the Times Square comedy hotspot.

In addition to all of the great food, drinks, and countless laughs, the annual fundraiser also featured a raffle for two VIP passes to a taping of CBS’ the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

For the ninth straight year, Stand-Ups Give BAC was produced by BAC parent and Emmy Award winning casting director Marc Hirschfeld, whose numerous credits include Seinfeld, That 70′s Show, and The Nanny.

Among those who have performed on the Stand-Ups Give BAC in past years include Amy Schumer, Zach Galifianakis, David Cross, Reggie Watts, Janine Garofalo, Hannibal Buress, John Oliver, Michael Che, and Jay Pharoah, among others.

BAC is a not-for-profit school, serving children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in Brooklyn, New York. The school was established in the Fall of 2007.  BAC’s program is founded by parents, educators and community activists who are determined to provide high quality, effective educational services for children on the Autism Spectrum.

From its humble beginnings serving four students in a church basement, BAC has grown to become a leader in the field of autism education and a much sought after school highly regarded for its comprehensive, scientifically validated educational and behavioral services designed to foster individual growth and personal achievement.

The Ms. Foundation for Women Celebrates the 21st Comedy Night at Carolines

The Ms. Foundation for Women and Carolines on Broadway teamed up once again for the 21st Annual Comedy Night at Carolines on October 25.  The evening, which was themed “Laughing Our Way to the Revolution!,” was hosted by the hilarious Judy Gold, who pulled no punches when discussing Donald Trump.  ”I hate that orange piece of s***… more than Toledo!”   The hilarious show also included performances by Kate Clinton, Katie Goodman, Aparna Nancherla, Hadiyah Robinson, Liza Treyger, Michelle Wolf, and Sasheer Zamata.  Clinton pulled the ultimate bait-and-switch when stated:  ”I’m very sorry to say this is the last comedy event for the Ms. Foundation here at Carolines…” which was met by a collective sigh from the audience.   But she quickly finished her statement:  ”… without a woman as president of the United States!”  The relieved audience quickly broke out into wild applause.  

The mission of the Ms. Foundation for Women builds women’s collective power to realize a nation of justice for all.  The Ms. Foundation’s work is guided by its vision of a just and safe world where power and possibility are not limited by gender, race, class, sexual orientation, disability or age.  The Ms. Foundation believes that equality and inclusion are the cornerstones of a true democracy in which the worth and dignity of every person are valued.
