Enjoy Chinese food and gut-busting comedy at our annual holiday laughfest!

This year, our guest comedian is the award-winning Cathy Ladman, who draws laughter from exposing personal neuroses. She has appeared on The Tonight Show nine times, made four appearances thus far on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and was awarded the American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand Up Comic. A buffet-style Chinese dinner will be provided by Hunan Garden Restaurant.

A native New Yorker now living in Los Angeles, Cathy Ladman is an acclaimed television and film actor. Her film credits include Charlie Wilson's War, The Aristocrats and White Oleander. Her TV appearances include Mad Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Everybody Loves Raymond. She's done several TV pilots, including Caroline in the City, in which she had a recurring role, and a bunch of others that barely saw the light of day (or night). She also appeared regularly on ABC's Politically Incorrect and Comedy Central's Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist.

Besides writing her standup act and original scripted projects, Cathy was on the writing staffs of The Caroline Rhea Show (2002), Caroline in the City (different Caroline altogether  1997), and Roseanne (1996). She also wrote an episode of King of Queens and other sitcoms. Her theatre credits include a successful run Off-Broadway in, The JAP Show: The Princesses of Comedy, the 25th Anniversary production of Last Summer at Bluefish Cove in Los Angeles, which was nominated for several GLAAD awards, and she and HBO developed her first solo show, Scaredypants, and took it to the Aspen Comedy Festival. Her second solo show, Does This Show Make Me Look Fat?, opened in Spring of this year.

Cathy's comedy focuses on family, growing up, relationships, and real life from a very personal perspective. The Los Angeles Times put it best: "... Ladman has such clever, well-written material and such a breezy, unassuming delivery that it would be easy to overlook just how good she is: Her act seems effortless."
