Danville: 'Comedy with Liz Grant and Friends' series returns for online showing

Comedy show to feature comedians Ian Williams and Matt Kirshen

While the coronavirus pandemic has prevented residents from gathering in large numbers for the past few months, local comedian Liz Grant doesn't see that as a reason to postpone her scheduled comedy show and has launched a plan to host a virtual show on Friday.
