YARMY’S ARMY, a madcap review of some of the funniest and most popular comedians of TV and film, will hold a one-night-only fundraiser for the Group Rep on Sunday, September 11 at the Lonny Chapman Theatre in the NoHo Arts District.
Many years ago, a lovely man and gifted actor named Dick Yarmy was stricken with cancer. Dick had a brother named Don Adams, star of “Get Smart” and other acclaimed tv shows. When Dick was undergoing chemotherapy, Don and some friends decided to try a dose of Laughter Therapy, arranging a regular Tuesday night dinner of comedians, actors, writers, producers, directors and all-around funny folks. They’d eat, they’d talk, they’d tell stories. Best of all, Dick would laugh.
Since Dick’s passing, these gifted old-school comic giants, whose ranks have included the likes of Jonathan Winters, Pat Harrington, Chuck McCann, Tom Poston and many others, have continued to meet and continued to perform and donate their talents to various charitable organizations.
This performance of Yarmy’s Army boasts the talents of Jimmy Chapel, Hank Garrett, Greg Lewis, Peter Marshall, Jim MacGeorge, Michael Preminger, Kerry Ross and Howard Storm among its distinguished members scheduled to perform.
YARMY’S ARMY is donating their time and talent for this very special Group Rep event. A reception hosted by the members of the Group Rep will follow the performance.
This is an opportunity of a lifetime to see some of the funniest and most popular comedians of TV and film in one comedy review.
The event is expected to sell-out. Advance ticket purchase is recommended.
