Two male comics, two female comics, one each married and single, talking about relationships and other wonders. Pre-celebrate Valentine’s Day (or don’t!) with tales of love and not-love, bad dinners and good dates, broken cars and unbroken dreams, brought to you by Ivy League Comedy.

The Ivy League of Comedy is the premier group of stand-up comedians touring America. Their shows honor audiences with original, well-written comedy that doesn’t resort to playing on stereotypes or picking on the audience, and is delivered by stand-up comedy’s funniest and brightest—all of whom happen to be graduates of Ivy League universities.

This performance will feature comedians Jane Condon, Shaun Eli, Carrie Gravenson, and Andy Pitz.

Doors open at 8:00 pm and the show begins at 8:30 pm. Mixed drinks, beer, wine, and snacks will be available before and during the show, come early and have a drink before the show! This comedy show contains adult-oriented material and may not be suitable for children under the age of 18.

This event will be in the Studio Theater and has Reserved seating. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Patron Services team by emailing info@blackrockcenter.org, or calling 240-912-1058. See our full list of ticketing policies here.

Shaun Eli

Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America’s smartest comics. Whether it’s a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket, master storyteller Shaun Eli proves that there’s hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Job interviews? Serving on a NYC criminal jury? How about the Ten Commandments? For just about anything he’s experienced Shaun has a hilarious story at the ready.

Carrie Gravenson

Carrie Gravenson, a native New Yorker, won the 2009 New York Underground Comedy Festival’s Emerging Talent Stand-Up Competition and was a runner-up in 2009’s Catch a Rising Star Stand-Up Competition. She was a semi-finalist in the Ventura Comedy competition and the She-Devil Comedy Contest in 2012. She produced “Disruptive Influence” and co-produced “The Tomfoolery Hour” popular monthly comedy showcases in New York City. She traveled the country with the Pink Collar Comedy Tour which has performed in over 50 cities, coast to coast and Canada and was featured in various publications and on CW San Diego 6. In 2014, she headlined at Caroline’s on Broadway, NYC’s premier comedy nightclub, as well as other venues around the country.

Jane Condon

Comedian and mom Jane Condon lives in Greenwich, Connecticut, but she’s still a nice person. She has two boys. Otherwise, everything’s fine. The Associated Press has dubbed her “an upper crust Roseanne” and The New York Times says, “Condon had the audience cackling, guffawing and in hysterics as she sliced through marriage, husband, kids, politics, and other topics.” She loves to tell stories about her adventures (mostly survival tales) with her husband and kids.

Condon was named one of 10 Comedy Best Bets in Back Stage’s annual comedy issue. She has appeared on ABC-TV’s “The View” and Lifetime TV’s “Girls’ Night Out,” FOX-TV’s series finale of “24,” Nickelodeon’s “Nick Mom Night Out,” as well as NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”

She is the grand prize winner of the Ladies of Laughter Contest, she won “Audience Favorite—NY” on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and she gave the commencement speech at Wellesley College (her alma mater). She recently appeared on NBC’s Today Show. You can reach her at www.janecondon.com.

Andy Pitz

Andy’s unique brand of comedy has landed him multiple appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” Andy is a regular performer at all of New York City’s top comedy clubs including Gotham Comedy Club, Caroline’s, and Comic Strip Live. He also tours the country and abroad when his wife will allow it.
