Andy-Pitz-B46A1188-7ABOUT ANDY PITZ
Andy Pitz has been a mainstay in comedy venues of all kinds for more than 20 years. His unique style and smart humor has landed him appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” to name but a few. Pitz’s takes on marriage, parenting and his own inadequacies are some of the funniest ever heard. Originally from Buffalo, he currently lives in Rockland County with his wife, daughter, in-laws and some pets. In his spare time, Pitz tries to create some spare time.


During the day, Dan Geurin is the typical guy next door: a husband, a father, a neighbor. However, at night Geurin’s life becomes anything but typical when he takes the stage as a professional stand-up comedian. Geurin is a regular at Northeast comedy clubs including The Comedy Works in Albany and at Funny Bone in Syracuse and Albany. He also has performed all over the East Coast as part of The Not Too Far From Home Comedy Tour. Geurin will show that our everyday lives are funny and that we never really know what the guy next door is up to.

Erin Harkes has been on the comedy circuit for just four years, but her dry wit and sarcasm coupled with audience rapport has made her very successful in a short amount of time. She has won local contests and performed all over New York and beyond. In 2014 and 2015, she was voted “Albany’s Best Local Comedian” by Metroland. She performs at Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club and The Stand in New York City, The Comedy Works in Albany, Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, Funny Bone in Syracuse, Albany and Hartford, and SheDot Comedy Festival in Toronto. Harkes also produces her own shows monthly featuring local and nationally touring comedians.

Opened in 2008, the critically acclaimed Massry Center for the Arts features the 400-seat Kathleen McManus Picotte Recital Hall, Esther Massry Gallery, choral and instrument rehearsal rooms, teaching studios, piano labs and classrooms. Past performing artists have included B.B. King, Chick Corea, Dave Brubeck, Stewart Copeland, Béla Fleck, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Doc Severinsen, Ramsey Lewis, Maceo Parker, Mary Lambert, Tim Reynolds, Stefon Harris, John Pizzarelli, the Boston Symphony Orchestra Strings, Yuja Wang, Paula Cole and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The 46,000 square-foot gem is certified LEED Gold, ranking it among the Capital Region’s most energy-efficient and Earth-friendly buildings.
