City of Lakeport, California

Marc Yaffee and Friends Jazz and Jokes
6/30/2018, starts 7:00 PM

Comedian Marc Yaffee and his daughter, musician, Alicyn Yaffee, bring a night of Jazz and Jokes to the Soper Reese Theatre, Saturday, June 30 at 7:00 pm. Marc is a co-star of the Showtime special, Goin' Native: The American Indian Comedy Slam, and has also been seen on the Latino Laugh Festival and Comics Unleashed.  Alicyn, a jazz guitar vocalist based in New York City, has toured across North America and Europe.

Marc and Alicyn, both former Kelseyville residents, will be joined by comedian Ruben Mora.  Mora has performed across the region, including at the Punchline and Improv Comedy clubs.

"I actually started my comedy career when I lived in Kelseyville, so I am excited to come back to Lake County," says Yaffee.  "And I know Alicyn would not have pursued music professionally if not for the opportunity to play under Tom Aiken in the Kelseyville High School Jazz Band."

Marc recently shot the TV pilot, Almost Americans, where he plays a comedian teaching citizenship to new immigrants.  The show's cast also includes Gerry Bednob (Mooj from The 40 Year Old Virgin), and Steven Michael Quesada (Agent Gomez from Breaking Bad).  Yaffee also co-starred in the premier episode of the new standup series, First Nations Comedy Experience for the FNX (First Nations Experience Network).

Alicyn released her debut album, Someone Else, on Mad Dog Junkyard Records and will begin recording a follow-up album later this year.

Tickets, $15 in advance and $18 at the door, are now available at; at the Travel Center, 1265 S. Main St., Lakeport, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm; or at the Soper Reese Theatre Box Office, 275 S.
