COMEDY NIGHT IS SATURDAY, JULY 25
TONS OF FUN EXPECTED
Tickets are now available. Get them before sold out.
Dixon Family Services’ Summer Fun-raising Event, Comedy Night 2015, is all set for Saturday, July 25. Last July our event was a smashing hit with everyone who attended. This year is expected to be even bigger and better! Don’t regret missing the funniest night in Dixon. Get your tickets early before we sell out.
This year’s venue, recently renovated Olde Vet’s Hall, will add a level of comfort and elegance to the hot summer’s funniest night in Dixon. But don’t be mistaken, this is a casual affair. Wear something with elastic waist for a delicious tri-tip dinner, decadent desserts and hard belly laughs.
At this Comedy Night laughter will come from two well-known local comedians. The headliner will be Rick Read.
BIO: Rick lives by the belief that if you can’t laugh at yourself, stare harder in the mirror. His high-energy humor will lead you on a highway of hilarity guaranteed to leave you laughing, as he serves up his views on everything from life with a child to the current state of the country. Adding visuals, voices and stories, you’re sure to have a side splitting time.

He has been an opening act with: Chubby Checker, Loretta Lynn, & Jay Leno
Comedy Night’s opening act is local funny man, Kevin Young.
Bio: When first seeing Kevin Young, he is often thought of as being very serious. But after witnessing his act, many agree the Sacramento comic is seriously funny. Young, who made his comedy breakthrough by taking part in the heralded San Francisco International Stand Up Comedy Competition in 2007, has quickly become a favorite in clubs throughout the west coast.
He was heard as a regular guest on KWOD radio in Sacramento, appeared in the Walt Disney
Film, “Flubber”, starring Robin Williams, and his improvisational abilities entertained a crowd at a Mystery Dinner Theatre. No matter the venue, Kevin is sure to entertain and ignite a crowd.
You can also count on laughing at our Dixon Police Chief Jon Cox as the event’s Emcee. Those who have never witnessed it before are in for a treat when you see how comical he can be.
Comedy Night has become a signature fundraising event for Dixon Family Services over several years. Dixon Family Services is a community-based, one-stop-shop of social services for Dixon’s residents who are in need of a variety of assistance programs. The Comedy Night event is an opportunity for all community members to come out and support the non-profit organization, while having a great time.
The evening begins at 6:00 with social time, no-host bar and a chance to see a large array of raffle prizes and to socialize. Then a tri-tip dinner, courtesy of Recology, will be served from 6:30-7:30. For dessert, homemade decadent desserts will be available in the Bake Sale and Auction. You are encouraged to bring along your checkbook in order to secure the dessert that makes your mouth water the most.
Then, at 8 “The Show” begins and heavy laughter is predicted.
Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. Tickets are available to purchase at Dixon Family Services at 155 North Second Street, The Dixon Tribune at 145 East A Street, The Dixon Family Services Thrift Store at 1150 North First Street and Dixon Florist and Gifts at 150 East A Street.
