Laugh It Up With NYC Virtual Comedy Series

Posted on 02/28/21 by The AARP Bulletin

As we cope with these stressful and turbulent times amid the coronavirus pandemic, why not get some much-needed relief with a healthy dose of laughter?


Throughout March, AARP in New York City is presenting Real Fun, Real Laughter, Real Possibilities, a virtual comedy series hosted by The Stand NYC, one of the city’s hottest comedy clubs. The eight-episode digital series kicked off Tuesday, March 9. It will run Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 5 p.m., through March 30. 

In celebration of Women’s History Month, each virtual show will feature a performance by female comedians who are age 50 and older. They include Jane Condon, Karith Foster, Rhonda Hansome, and Kerri Louise - many of whom appeared on Showtime’s popular 2019 comedy special Funny Women of a Certain Age. 

Each prerecorded show will appear on AARP New York’s
Facebook page,, and will also be available for later viewing on the site. 

The free virtual episodes were created specifically for AARP members and their guests. 

“It’s family-friendly stand-up, delivered from the couch,” said Antonio Coppola, associate director for AARP in New York City.
