PRINCETON — The public is invited to join Festival 56 in some laughs with the last in a series of comedy nights at the Grace Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 23.

For one night only, Marty DeRosa and Derek Graff will be performing stand-up comedy on the stage in Princeton in a truly unforgettable evening.

DeRosa is the next in the line of many hilarious comedians from Chicago. With his high-energy performances and his improvised comedic style, he has been turning heads all over the comedy world. His shows have the feel of a house party where the class clown is holding court.

Graff is a Chicago-based stand-up comedian whose dry, self-effacing style has made him a Midwest favorite. His small-town upbringing and big city experiences have given him plenty to laugh at himself about. He performs at clubs and festivals all over the country, including Zanies and The Laugh Factory.
