On January 26, the Theater at Madison Square Garden will host an all-star comedy jam, the Garden of Laughs, a night of stand-up comedy from some of the best in the business, as a fundraiser for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. The event will be hosted by sportscaster Bob Costas and feature performances by Robert Klein, Ray Romano, Wanda Sykes, Brian Regan, Darrell Hammond, and Adam Ferrara. Tickets range from $50 to $125 and are on sale now, so pick some up and laugh your head off while supporting a great local cause.
