Main Street Kent Announces Progressive Comedy Event, Aug. 8

Posted Jul. 21, 2014

Main Street Kent is excited to announce the Progressive Comedy Dinner Party, to take place on Friday, Aug. 8. An entire evening of cocktails, delicious food, live comedy and a private dessert party will be included in the event. This is the second event of its kind, following the Beatles’ 50th Anniversary Progressive Event held this past February.

The Progressive Comedy Dinner Party is generously sponsored by Hometown Bank and McKay Bricker Framing and Black Squirrel Gifts, both very dedicated supporters of downtown Kent.

Tickets to the progressive event are limited to 100. The cost to attend is $65 for one or $125 for a pair, and can be purchased online at or at McKay Bricker Framing and Black Squirrel Gifts. Online ticket orders will be mailed.

The event begins at 6 p.m. at the popular downtown nightclub 157 Lounge, where ticketholders will enjoy two cocktails of their choice (martinis excluded). From there, the event will move up the street to Bricco for a delicious dinner, including salad and soft drinks, from 7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. Guests will choose from four entrees upon arrival at the restaurant: pork tenderloin, lobster ravioli, mahi-mahi or a vegetarian quinoa dish. Then at 8:30 p.m., a live comedy show begins at the Kent Stage, with Mike Polk Jr. as the headliner. One drink/snack ticket is included. To top off the night, guests will go to Tree City Coffee and Pastry.
