Chelmsford's Comedy Show A Howling Success
The Rotary Club of Chelmsford's Comedy Show on November 5 at the Radisson Hotel in Chelmsford was both a financial success and a fun-filled evening. Those attending enjoyed snacks and drinks as they viewed a variety of raffle baskets before the show.
Comedian David DiLorenzo opened the show and kept the audience laughing for a half-hour. Then, hypnotist Tommy Vee took over. For about an hour and a half, he hypnotized 20 volunteers and had them keep the audience thoroughly enjoying themselves.
The evening concluded with the basket winners being drawn. The Lowell Five, Enterprise Bank and Village Electric were among sponsors who supported the event.
