Elm Street Cultural Arts Village debuted a new monthly stand-up comedy series titled “The Lasting Laugh” for audiences both in-person and online on Feb. 13.
The comedy special, which will be hosted by Jessica “It’s All Good,” will feature Atlanta’s favorite clean comics and not so clean comics who just cleaned up for this show. Designed as a series, there will be a new set of comics joining Jessica every month. Audiences can come in-person with a limited amount of socially distanced tickets, or enjoy the show right from home with a digital livestream ticket option.
“We are excited to bring a more regular stand-up comedy series home to Woodstock,” Elm Street’s Production Manager Brian Gamel said. “We’ve seen how much our audiences love the Last Laugh competition, and we wanted to bring them that same fun energy both in person, and from the comfort of their own homes. Comedian, DJ, and actress Jessica “It’s All Good” is no stranger to Elm Street, having been involved in the organization’s educational programming and various comedy shows, so we are excited to be able to partner with her again.”
Jessica “It’s All Good” said she is excited to be a part of Elm Street in this new way, adding that it has been a wonderful experience hosting The Last Laugh competition for many years now.
“When the pandemic hit, I was devastated by all the comedy opportunities I lost,” she said. “Then the theater and I started talking about doing a regular show that is pandemic-friendly, and there was born The Lasting Laugh. Not only do I love that it is streaming so people at home can still enjoy the beauty of comedy here at Elm Street, but I also love that it is an opportunity to be a part of the theater on a more regular occasion and to give more comedians work.”
Each comedy special is a one-night event in-person that streams for two full weeks afterward. “The Lasting Laugh” is recommended for ages 12 and up due to content. Audiences in-person or online will enjoy constant laughs from unexpected guest comedians. Concessions, Reformation beer, and wine will be available for purchase via seatside service.
Tickets are on sale now at www.elmstreetarts.org and will not be sold at the door.
