Jerrold Benford, Dan Bocchino, Sarah Goldbloom and Shahryar highlight the evening.

Jerrold Benford

Jerrold is establishing himself as a fixture on the eastern comedy circuit.  Born and raised in Virginia, Jerrold began his career in New Jersey, where he quickly made a name for himself and performed at NJ and NYC’s finest clubs, including:  Rascals, Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, Gotham Comedy Club, and the renowned Caroline’s on Broadway.

Within two years of his stand-up debut, Jerrold has featured and headlined clubs, colleges, and private functions all over the tri-state area. His distinctive perspective on dating and marriage topics combines with a high energy, friendly delivery to create wickedly clever content and a wildly funny act.

Dan Bocchino

Dan has been performing stand-up, sketch, and improv comedy in various forms for over 10 years. What began as a 5 minute open mic spot in the back room of a small bar in Bloomfield, NJ has blossomed into 10 minute spots in clubs just outside of Bloomfield, NJ.

​He has performed at clubs across NJ, NYC, and Boston.

In addition to his solo stand-up work, Dan was a founding member of the Boston, MA sketch comedy troupe Slow Children at Play and a former member of the Montclair, NJ improv group Lunatic Fringe.

He is also an avid playwright, having written and produced one-act shows at festivals in both New York City and New Jersey. Dan currently resides in New Jersey with his wife, son, and middle-aged Shih Tzu.

Sarah Goldbloom

Sarah is a local singer/songwriter who has been playing music and singing since her early childhood. Her unique style and hopeful lyrics will captivate any audience.

Sarah loves music that tells a story and connecting with her audience is what she sets out to do at each of her shows. She believes there is nothing better than bringing a group of people together from all different backgrounds and experiences and uniting them with one song.
