The Hightstown High School Varsity Cheerleaders are holding a comedy night benefit to raise money for their team.
Comedian Chris Coccia will be cracking jokes this Saturday at the Hightstown VFW at 8 p.m. Coccia is known for his “in the moment” material that mixes with improvisation and crowd interaction. He won the 2008 Purina Pet Comedy Challenge, which was a national contest with a $10,000 prize, according to Coccia’s website. Coccia has also appeared on Comedy Central, The Game Show Network, XM radio, and as a guest on several Philadelphia FM radio shows.
The VFW Hall is located at 140 Dutch Neck Road. The cost of admission to the show is $20. Tickets can be ordered online at www.jcpentertainment.com.
