(This event has ended.) Every Tuesday in March and April we present a program of classic comedy. Writers as diverse as Chaucer, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Molière, Mark Twain, Stephen Leacock and H.G.Wells will take us on a humorous journey that spans centuries. There will be time travel, spiritism and hypochondria.
The actors appearing this evening will include W.C. Fields, Bob Hope, Jack Benny and many, many more. The program will start just after 18.00 (CET) on Tuesday March 10. That is at 13.00 in New York, and 10.00 in Los Angeles. According to Time Zone Converter.
