Laughs in the Loft

Wednesday, July 06, 2022 @ 7:30pm



The Loft @ South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC)
One Sopac Way, South Orange, NJ 07079

Join us for Laughs in the Loft, a monthly series featuring stand-up comics from our own backyard, Brooklyn and beyond. You never know who might drop in! Each Laughs in the Loft event features several comedians in a New York City-style showcase.

Jason Salmon has been seen on just about every commercial on your TV. He has also brought his hilarious comedy to “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and to the US troops all over the world.

KC Arora is a fantastic comedian who has been featured on “Laughs” on Fox, “Gotham Comedy Live” and worked with Laughs in the Loft host Joe Larson when they both wrote on the show “Punchline” for Fox.

Sharon Simon is a fixture in the NYC comedy scene. She has been seen on “Saturday Night Live” and CBS. When not shooting a show, she is working tirelessly at building a fantastic comedy act. If you have been to a comedy club in New York City, there is a good chance you have seen her.

Mike Earley was the winner of Funniest Comic in the Twin Cities. A recent transplant to NYC, within the first week of living here he was a regular at the Cellar! (which is unheard of!) His hysterical comedic style has caught the eye of Louis CK, Maria Bamford and Nick Swardson—all of which have taken him on the road as an opener.

Joe Larson

Joe is a comedian, husband and father – the former makes the latter well….interesting.

When Joe met his now wife she loved how much he made her laugh. He warned her that while she finds it cute now, she may feel differently when he is unable to do anything but joke during the heat of an argument. As his wife eventually found out “you’re funny all the time!” can quickly turn into “Does everything have to be a joke?”

Perhaps it’s not his fault, Joe is after all a second generation comedian. Much to his parent’s dismay at the age of twenty, Joe went into the family business. Straight away he was chosen College Comedian of the Year at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and shortly after he made the move to New York City where he paid his dues at any club that would give him the mic.

Joe has been on stage at some of the best rooms in the city including the famed Caroline’s On Broadway and Gotham Comedy Club. He was nominated “Best Up-And-Coming Comedian” at the NYC MAC Awards, was a finalist in both the prestigious Johnny Carson Great American Comedy Festival and Boston Comedy Festival and was part of the feature film Stand Up 360. Joe has also been seen on Gotham Comedy Live, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” “Laughs” on FOX, the Tonight Show’s Laugh Squad and the Speed Channel. On radio he is a repeat guest on Bob and Tom and the Bennington Show.

Pre-pandemic Joe Larson had one of the hottest shows in Brooklyn. Sold out each time to standing room only, his show “Couleur Comedy” was a huge success. It brought together the hottest up-and-coming comedians with established pros for a dynamic and exciting evening. Now, a South Orange resident, Joe is bringing his show to SOPAC.
