Mike Murray is a crowd favorite all over New England. Mike was deaf until the age of 40 and then had the Cochlear implants and now can hear! His story will have you laughing out loud.
Mary Ellen Rinaldi
For the past 35 years, Mary Ellen spent most of her weekends on stage making people laugh until her last show on March 7, 2020. Her shows are now broadcasts from the best corner of her living room nestled between the four young children she is raising.
Her life has changed and she’s Zooming to tell you about it. From 2nd grade math to 9th grade science, she is flunking it all! When Mary Ellen’s having a good day, she’s funny, and when she has a bad day, she’s even funnier. And luckily for all of you she has had a really bad six months. Jump on for a good laugh.
Comedian Rhonda Corey truly embodies the New England spirit. It’s no wonder that her authenticity with a twist of lovable sass has resonated with audiences from Rhode Island to California! She is the winner of “The Clean Comedy Challenge 2018” and the producer and host of the livestream sensation “Talk is Cheap.”

Quizzo with Johnny Goodtimes-Canceled
Wednesday, March 24 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
$25 | Purchase Tickets
Virtual Quizzo is tailor-made pandemic entertainment, providing remote coworkers, family, and friends with all the social interaction, mental stimulation, healthy competition, and good clean fun that you’d find at your traditional “pub trivia” night. Connecting via Zoom, participants spend half the session in the “main room” with the Quizzo host, and half in the “breakout room” with their teammates, going over answers and socializing as they would in real life. Teams will be assigned at random. The trivia itself is designed to be accessible and challenging for all ages and skill levels, and no one leaves without new knowledge or a smile.
The Junior League of Philadelphia’s Spring Fling event is sponsored by Fiduciary Trust International, a global wealth management firm that has served individuals, families, endowments, and foundations since 1931.
