Arroyo Repertory Theatre

The Return of A.R.T.!

Coming Events & Tickets

Saturday January 25 2014

Something Funny in Pasadena is a show about a comedian who, while struggling to be relevant, discovers the art of storytelling. Through writing and developing his personal stories of joy, pain, embarrassment, and love, he realizes the significance of his life and the importance of his relationships.


The show features a comedy performance and stories told by Ty Fance, a comedy performance by Katsy Chappell, music performed by Latin-Jazz guitarist Rico Espinoza and hosted by the charming and witty Cheryl Farrell.


Ty Fance has performed at the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, the Hollywood Improv and The Comedy Store. Ty has also published a book of autobiographical short stories- "Off My Head and Over the Fence".


Katsy Chappell  performs at the Pasadena Ice House Comedy Club, the Hollywood Improv and the Comedy Store. Katsy shares her unique prospective on recycling, air travel and all things "Katsy".  Lots of energy and lots of fun.
