ORINDA,CA--(Marketwire - Jan 18, 2012) - For the third year, San Francisco's lovers of laughter will have the renewed opportunity to enjoy a champagne-filled night of comedy at the landmark Orinda Theatre on Friday, March 2nd. The Orinda Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Tommy T's Comedy Clubs and The Lamorinda Film & Entertainment Foundation, today announced plans for the third "Live at the Orinda" event. Past events gained rave reviews, perhaps topped by "Orinda ain't Borinda anymore."

The fun evening will start at 6:45 p.m. with a lobby reception featuring full no-host bars. Champagne, wine and mixed drinks can also be purchased during the open seating performances, starting at 7:30 p.m. with a brief mid-show intermission. Master of Ceremonies, local favorite Michael Fender, will sing, entertain and introduce each comedian. This year's slate features Kabir Singh (Kabeezy), Dan St. Paul, Johnny Steele and headliner Will Durst, who The New York Times calls "possibly the best political comic in the country."

"This show should be one of the best," said Rick Kattenburg, Chamber Director and its originator. "We have award-winning comedians, and Tommy of 'Tommy T's Comedy Clubs' has again been indispensible in helping us put together a great slate of comics. This year we've also added live music. This will be the perfect date night, so come on out and laugh 'till it hurts!"

Discounted performance tickets at $35.00 may be reserved in advance until March 1st using a major credit card at the Orinda Chamber of Commerce web site -- http://orindachamber.org/LiveAtTheOrinda2012.htm -- or at First Republic Bank, 224 Brookwood Road. Tickets at the door (if available) will be $40.00 per person. A portion of any profits from this event will benefit local non-profit organizations as well as the on-going community work of the Chamber. Advanced reservations are limited to 700 ticket holders, so attendees are encouraged to reserve early.

The Chamber's goal is again to delight more than 700 guests -- 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.
