For the Reporter

Brad Upton, the master comic whose work appeals to ages 18 to 80, headlines this month's Comedy at the Ave.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. April 26 at the historic theater, 10 Auburn Ave.

Writing about everyday life, a long term marriage and anything else that pops into his head, Upton packs a powerful punch line.

A past winner of the Las Vegas Comedy Festival, Upton has toured with Joan Rivers and for the past seven years opened for the legendary Johnny Mathis. He was seen recently at Caesar's Palace as part of the HBO Comedy Festival. He has headlined from Anchorage to Miami as well as Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau. His new CD, Brad Uptonogood, is heard frequently on Sirius/XM radio.

Each monthly Comedy at the Ave features three comedians for a variety of entertainment to keep you laughing all night long.
