A monthly comedy series featuring the titular Grant and some of her funniest friends in comedy, the Dec. 5 show is set to feature the comedian James Patrick Connoly, who will be headlining the virtual event.

"Connoly is a radio/television host known for his playful style and quick wit," Danville town staff said in a statement. "He can be heard daily on SiriusXM, and has hosted 'Life From Here' for National Lampoon XM Radio. Every year he produces a Veterans Day Comedy Show which benefits the Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP)."

Comedy fans may also recognize Connoly from appearances on "America’s Got Talent," Comedy Central, HBO and in the Netflix Series "Larry Charles: Dangerous World of Comedy.”

The show will also feature the comedy stylings of comedian, writer and actress Mary Gallagher, who comedy fans may recognize from her national stand-up television debut on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

Gallagher has also been featured on Amazon Prime’s “Laugh After Dark.” on the hidden-camera horror show “Prank Encounters” and as a part of the Montreal Comedy Festival with her web series, “Be My Therapist” which she co-created and stars in.

December's installment of "Comedy with Liz Grant with Friends" will stream on Zoom at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 5. Tickets cost $15 and can be purchased on the Village Theatre and Art Gallery's website. Residents will have a link to the show sent to their email accounts at 6:30 p.m. the night of the show, with the waiting room opening approximately 20 minutes prior to the performance.

Comedians may use mature themes and language in their material, so theater officials have set an age recommended of 18 years old and up -- but comedy fans under 16 can attend if given permission from an adult.
