ORINDA, CA--(Marketwire - February 11, 2010) - San Francisco's East Bay area lovers of laughter will have the opportunity to join a champagne-filled night of comedy at the landmark Orinda Theatre on Friday, March 5th. The Orinda Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Tommy T's Comedy Clubs and The Lamorinda Film & Entertainment Foundation today announced plans for the first "Live at the Orinda" event.

The evening of fun will start with a gala champagne reception at 7:00 p.m., followed by laugh-packed performances from five comedians starting at 8:00 p.m. A brief intermission will be provided for attendees to regain composure and refill their refreshments. Featured comedians will be Ed Tracey, Larry "Bubbles" Brown, Dan St. Paul, Mark Pitta, and Johnny Steele -- all highly acclaimed masters of comedy.

"Live at the Orinda offers fun-loving people of our East Bay communities the opportunity to share an evening of relaxing laughter while discovering all the charms of Orinda," said Sue Breedlove, Orinda Chamber President. "We expect this will become an annual event."

Advanced discounted performance tickets at $25.00 may be reserved in advance until March 4th using Visa or MasterCard at the Orinda Chamber of Commerce web site -- www.OrindaChamber.org, or at First Republic Bank, 224 Brookwood Road and at The Framemaker, 19 Orinda Way in Orinda, CA. Tickets at the door (if available) will be $30.00 per person. Champagne and other refreshments will be available for separate purchase. A portion of any profits from the event will benefit local non-profit organizations. Advanced reservations will be limited to 700 ticket holders, so attendees are encouraged to reserve early.

The Chamber's goal is to delight more than 700 participants -- aged 17 and older -- as they enjoy the classic surroundings of an Art Deco Masterpiece Theatre and an evening of friendship rediscovering the magic of laughter.
