Love animals and stand-up? North Fork Animal Welfare League
(NFAWL) is hosting its 5th annual A Night of Comedy
on Saturday, April 21.
Paul Corrigan will host the hilarious affair that will feature uproarious sets from Gary Keshner and Scott Schendlinger, and headliner Jodie Wasserman - who has appeared on NBC
'S Last Comic Standing
, BET's Comic View
, and Comedy Central's Premium Blend and Comic Remix
"While there is nothing funny about neglected animals, involving the community through events is vital to our success," shared Claudia Ferrara, Vice President, NFAWL. "I am very proud to be part of the League and even prouder of the work that they do."
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the laughs will continue on through until 9:30 p.m.
"The proceeds from our annual comedy show go a long way towards helping us reach our goals and for the future of a new shelter for the Town of Riverhead," Ferrara noted.
NFAWL launched its Riverhead Shelter Campaign back in 2015, with the mission of turning the Henry Pfeifer Community Center into a new state-of-the-art animal shelter where the homeless and lost dogs, cats and other animals of the East End can comfortably await meeting their forever family. The current Riverhead shelter, which North Fork Animal Welfare League has managed since 2013, is situated next to a garbage dump and waste processing plant. The decades old building is in desperate need of a major renovation, with bad lighting and ventilation and insufficient space for the animals.
"Please join us for a night of fun, laughs and a Chinese Auction with fabulous donations from our local business community," Ferrara added.

NFAWL, which was incorporated in 1963, operates two local animal shelters: Southold and Riverhead. Its mission is to "return lost animals to their homes, find suitable homes for homeless animals, provide shelter and humane care for animals in need, reduce unwanted births of animals, and enforce laws pertaining to dog control."

Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
