After a successful Creative Artist Salon Night launch, LTV is presenting its second iteration - highlighting comedy, film, music, talk, scene readings and more - on Friday, March 22.

"We are very grateful for the positive response and buzz after our first Salon Night, and now we are excited for our second Creative Salon Night at LTV!" LTV Creative Director Angela LaGreca, who will once again host the affair, reflected. "And for me, a comedian/singer/producer at heart, I get to wear all my favorite hats as the host!"

The gathering of East End creatives will include bits by Joy Behar, Mercedes Ruehl, Inda Eaton, Dan Gasby, Alex Lerner, Tia Greene, Mago & Marsin, Judith Kasen-Windsor, John Sialiano (Goumba Johnny), Bill McCuddy, Christiane Arbesu, and Julie Bluestone.

"Joy Behar (a Sag Harbor resident) is back with a new reading of an LOL scene. Joy's playwriting and scenes are as funny as her standup," LaGreca shared. "Lucky to have Academy Award-winning actress Mercedes Ruehl (a Springs resident) reading, as well as comedian and actor John Sialiano (aka 'Goomba Johnny' former radio host of WKTU, former resident of Springs). I'm sure he'll do some standup. And comedian/writer/TV commentator Bill McCuddy (Sagaponack resident), formerly of Fox News, will makes us think and laugh."

The night will also include a preview of exciting upcoming LTV programming. "I'm excited for a new show that will launch soon on LTV: 'Access Hamptons', hosted by the uber-creative artists Mago (curator at RJD Gallery) & Marsin (film director, fashion/digital) who both live in Sag Harbor," LaGreca explained. "We'll get a sneak peak of their show, a clip of Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon in conversation recently for Black History Month at RJD Gallery, and then Margo & Marsin will interview Dan Gasby and Alex Lerner (Sag Harbor residents), and talk about Alzheimer's and the 'Why Lie' campaign. A local, and national hot topic, for sure!"

And, that's not the only sneak peek the audience will be privy to. "PR guru and TV host Tia Greene does an amazing lifestyle show on LTV called 'Savor the Moments' where she highlights local people, culinary adventure, and 'wine cations'--she'll give us a glimpse of her episodes, and then bring out slow food industry maven Peter Haskell, wine distributor Alex Seric, and Chef Nick of Hamptons Neal Prep for some savory/savvy talk," LaGreca noted.

"Speaking of film, on hand will be filmmaker Christiane Arbesue (of Hampton Bays) discussing her documentary about Cuba, and what it felt like to return to the country her family was exiled from," LaGreca added. "And gay rights activist Judith Kasen-Windsor will discuss all-things-Edie (her famous widow Edie Windsor), the new Edie memoir, her legacy, and what's in store for the East End as Southampton Hospital names a wing after Edie."

As for live music, the lineup will not disappoint. "Musically, local singer/songwriter Inda Eaton (featured on LTV's 'East End Underground') will sing and tell some stories, on the eve of her acoustic gig with Nancy Atlas at the Steven Talkhouse," LaGreca shared. "Local, popular jazz musician Julie Bluestone (Springs) will play sax, and Lenny Babbish, Angela's musical director, takes the trek from the city to his beloved East End, to play piano and musical direct."

Lenny Babbish will serve as Musical Director, with DJ Sounds from Franklin Quito. There will also be wine courtesy of CW Distributing, and savory bites courtesy of Milla's Puffs, Haskell's Seafood, and Hamptons Meal Prep.

"It's all under one tent, one night. Ten bucks!?? True!" LaGreca concluded. "All to benefit LTV, our local public access station and media center."

Doors open at 6:45 p.m. and the Creative Artist Salon Night will commence at 7 p.m.

To reserve a seat, call 631-537-2777 x110.

LTV is located at 75 Industrial Road in East Hampton. For more information, visit www.ltveh.org.
