SOPAC's Laughs In The Loft for September


originally published: 08/23/2022

SOPAC

(SOUTH ORANGE, NJ) -- What’s so special about September 7? Yes, sadly, it is the unofficial end of summer, but it’s also the first Laughs in the Loft show of the SOPAC 2022-2023 Season. And, the passing of Labor Day marks back-to-school time. So what's better than including a funny local teacher in the lineup? Don’t miss April Tinari as she trades in her classroom at Marshall Elementary School for the Loft stage. Joining her on stage will be Sergio Chicon, Matthew Broussard, Aaron Kominos-Smith and host Joe Larson.

On the first Wednesday of every month, SOPAC’s Loft turns into a comedy club during this New York City-style stand-up showcase. The next Laughs in the Loft performance is Wednesday, September 7 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 and available for purchase online.

Sergio Chicon - Sergio has toured as an opener for Chris Distefano and been featured on Comedy Central, MTV and BET. Born and raised in the Lower East Side, He's a father, comic, fighter, personal trainer, student of life and creator of #DBSpodcast.

Matthew Broussard - Born in New Jersey, raised in Atlanta, and, in 2012, winner of Houston's Funniest Person, Matthew Broussard is not exactly sure where he's from. Matthew earned a degree in Applied Mathematics and a job as a financial analyst before moving to West Hollywood to pursue stand-up comedy full time. His brand of playful, witty humor covers topics from physics & grammar to the hardships of looking like an 80s movie villain. He can be seen on The League, The Mindy Project, Conan, Roast Battle, and has his own Half Hour Special on Comedy Central. But his Cajun father and Jewish mother still really want him to take the GMAT.

Aaron Kominos-Smith – Aaron has been seen on FOX and Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central.

A New Jersey native and teacher at South Orange's Marshall Elementary School, April has performed with MAPSOSoFUNNY’s Women of SOMA, and in The Mom Show and The Mom Show II at The Woodland. When not on stage or in the classroom, April enjoys eating the ORIGINAL and best Sloppy Joe sandwiches from Town Hall, playing the ukulele, and depriving her senses at the nearest float spa.
