Funny Business

For one night only, the Schulman Auditorium is turning into the hottest comedy club in town. Join us for a night filled with laughs for comedy lovers of all ages.

Kira Soltanovich

Kira Soltanovich grew up in San Francisco during a time when there were bad neighborhoods, cheap coffee and it wasn’t ironic to ride the cable cars. She began her comedy career back in 1998 after asking her Russian immigrant parents if they would support her dream to become a stand up. After her mother and father confessed “It’s not like you’re smart enough to be a doctor…” Kira took that as their blessing to pursue her dreams and she’s never looked back.

Dwayne Perkins

Brooklyn native Dwayne Perkins is a vet in the comedy game. His one-hour comedy special: “Dwayne Perkins: Take Note” debuted on Netflix to rave reviews and instantly became a fan favorite. It showcases his unique way of looking at life and his unparalleled ability to convey it in a hilarious manner. Take Note was already in the top 50 Netflix comedy specials of all time only two months after being released.
