Now is a good time to practice your public laugh as the Numerica Performing Arts Center (PAC) gets ready for an outdoor comedy show on Friday.

The PAC will host Courtyard Comedy, with comic action starting at 7:30 p.m. in the lower courtyard, located downtown off of North Wenatchee Avenue.

Stand-up comedians Andrew Sleighter and Todd Kirkwood are set to perform with other local comedians. Sleighter has been featured on "Conan," Comedy Central, "Last Comic Standing" and Wenatchee’s Cold Winter Nights Comedy series.

Guests attending the event will be required to wear masks when not eating or drinking, according to a PAC press release.

General admission tickets go for $20. A VIP table for four costs $100. For more information about the show, visit or call 663-2787.
