How's Your Laugh Life?”

August 3rd

Internationally Renowned Comic Performer Randy Judkins
The Raymond Arts Alliance is hosting a performance on August 3, featuring the comic arts of Randy Judkins. Randy, a past resident of Raymond, is recognized throughout the United States as a popular, professional new-vaudeville stage artist, a visually engaging performer, and an entertainer who also educates. He has instructed at the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey’s Clown College in Florida, and has served as a character consultant for Tri-Star Pictures in Hollywood, California.
The title for the evening performance is “How’s Your Laugh Life?” Randy will do all the things he is most famous for: juggling, character-based comedy, magic, and more! And while all the fun happens, he will also educate – discussing how the brain reacts to humor, laughter, and why it is so helpful to our general health and well being. So come on down, and learn how to answer the important question – “How’s Your Laugh Life?”

Raymond Village Community Church, 27 Main St. in Raymond.
