The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University Irving Medical Center is presenting C.U. OUT East, a truly unforgettable evening at Guild Hall
on Saturday, July 27, which will not only feature comedy by SNL
's Colin Jost
, but it'll also include an intimate concert headlined by The Wallflowers. Jason Suran, one of the most sought after mentalists, will emcee the event.
"We are thrilled to be hosting our first benefit concert in the Hamptons," Craig Friedman, Co-Chairman Celiac Disease Council at the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and event organizer, shared. "We thought that giving our supporters the opportunity to see the Wallflowers in concert in a wonderful, intimate setting like Guild Hall would be really special."
The evening will begin with a VIP cocktail reception, held at an undisclosed location, featuring bespoke cocktails and locally sourced, gourmet, gluten-free hors d'oeuvres.
"Having Colin Jost perform stand-up in front of a receptive Hamptons crowd during his break from SNL
is going to be fantastic," Friedman noted. "We are striving to put on the best night of entertainment of the Hamptons summer season and the beneficiary of these efforts will be the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and patients worldwide affected by celiac disease."
For the past six years, Jost has served as co-anchor of SNL
's Weekend Update,
alongside fellow cast member Michael Che. He's also one of the show's head writers. The Staten Island native has taken home four Writers Guild Awards, a Peabody Award and has been nominated for several Emmy
Awards for his writing on SNL.
He also penned and starred in the Paramount
film Staten Island Summer,
which was inspired by his days as a lifeguard.
Vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Jakob Dylan
