MHA’s live Comedy Night returns this summer! Join us on July 8, 2022 from 7:30-9:00 at the Delaware Theatre Company,200 Water Street in Wilmington, DE.  Here is the link to register and/or donate to our “friendraiser.”

Watching comedy releases happy hormones, such as serotonin, and helps us feel at ease. Laughter give us numerous mental and physical benefits.  Laughter reduces stress hormones such as cortisol and epinephrine, which creates a more relaxed atmosphere for your mind and body. It also helps tense muscles, and lots of good laughs can actually reduce heart rate and blood pressure.  Laughter stimulates multiple sections of the brain and is a natural way to reduce pain, in addition to strengthening our immune systems.

As you can see, laughter is no joking matter (no pun intended)!  Please try to come out and join us for some fun and beneficial amusement, which is sure to be evoked by our MC, Belynda Criddell, and 2 following comedians, Chris Dolan and Maureen Ferguson. 

Due to the theater’s mask policy, refreshments will be served “on the go” style. See you on July 8th and bring some friends – let’s really laugh up a storm!!
