Some say laughter is the best medicine. It’s a stress reliever, a nervous tick or a fun way to interact with others. Coming up, a night of laughter hosted by the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group aims to give Marines, Sailors and their families an evening to remember.

On Monday, Sept. 15, the dinner and comedy show dubbed “Laughs for Leathernecks,” hits the Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theater in Irvine. Tickets for dinner and the show cost $35. All proceeds benefit members and families of the Camp Pendleton-based 5th Marine Regiment.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with dinner and a silent auction. The show follows at 7 p.m. with comedians Rita Rudner, James P. Connolly, Fritz Coleman, Laura Hayden and Tom Riehl hitting the stage.

The comedy club is located at 31 Fortune Drive, Suite 216 in Irvine. For more on the event and how to sponsor a member of the military or their family, visit
