The crowd enjoyed a full night of entertainment from a variety of performers last Friday at the Coloma Center. Comedian Will Durst concluded the evening with his unique take on world politics to the laughter of the crowd. Preceding him to the stage, the variety line-up included Andrews Sisters-like song styling’s of the Sister Swing trio.

The evening show started promptly at 7:00 PM as the late crowd continued to file in. Humor Times Editor-in-Chief and master of ceremonies for the evening, James Israel, was welcomed. Local improv comedy troop Anti-Cooperation League warmed up the room followed by the mysteries of Bosco the magician.

Just as the MC was welcoming Sister Swing to the stage, there was a commotion in the back of the room. The audience warmly welcomed “Marilyn Monroe” as she worked her way to the stage followed eagerly by a gaggle of inquisitive news reporters. Accompanied by Sister Swing, Marilyn sweetly sang “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to the joy of the crowd.

The evening was a grand success and celebrated the 20th anniversary of Humor Times and the 25th for Access Sacramento. Thanks to the many volunteers, staff, and Board to helped make the evening such a great success.
