     Stand Up for St. Jude House Driven by Toyota of Merrillville is an evening of LIVE COMEDY and LIVE MUSIC!
     St. Jude House Family Violence Prevention Center & Domestic Violence Shelter is proud to announce its safe and socially distant, DRIVE-IN to STAND UP for St. Jude House Comedy Night, driven by Toyota of Merrillville.
     This in-person event will take place outdoors at the Lake County Fairgrounds on Friday, June 11th and will be emceed by Robin Rock of 93.9 LITE FM.
A jam packed evening of entertainment will include live music from the highly entertaining, Dick Diamond & the Dusters!!
Live comedy will include
1) Sherman Edwards who was named “Entertainer of the Year” by Campus Activities Magazine and won ‘Best Stand Up Comic in Chicago’ by the Chicago Reader! He has performed on
TBS Just for Laughs and currently on the new series Single Long airing exclusively on HBO GO!
2) Since first taking the comedy scene by storm, Gwen LaRŏka is proving to be one of Chicago’s fastest up and coming comediennes. Her recent appearance on Chicago’s ABC Channel 7’s Emmy-Award winning show “Ñ Beat” is just one of the growing list of high profile coverage that is a testament to her laughter stimulating talent.
3) And finally, the headliner of the evening will be comedian and hypnotist, Flip Orley!    In addition to his appearance on “Entertainment Tonight” followed by his three traffic-stopping appearances on NBC’s “Today Show”, which met with rave reviews.
Seating will be strategically spaced and VERY VERY limited. No individual tickets will be sold in an effort to seat guests with their group only. Tickets will be sold pre-event only, not at the door and this event is expected to sell out quickly!
Four different seating opportunities are available:
1) “The VIP Treatment” tent for a Corporate Sponsor group
2) “Party Time Picnic Table” for a personal group of four
3) “You & Me” Picnic Table for two people
4) “The Blanket Bargain” includes a drive-in space for your car/blanket/lawn chairs
