Garry Marshall Theatre will host NBC weathercaster Fritz Coleman in a one-night comedy benefit with his comedy show Defying Gravity on Sunday, October 13, 2019.
The Honorary Mayor of Toluca Lake for the last 25 years will take the Garry Marshall Theatre stage to benefit The Toluca Lake Chamber of Commerce and the nonprofit Garry Marshall Theatre. A Valley Village resident, Coleman is no stranger to the Garry Marshall Theatre, as a long time friend of film and TV legend Garry Marshall, Coleman’s stand-up resumé spans clubs and theatres across the USA including past performances at the former Falcon Theatre.
The celebrated comedian, who has kept us informed about the Los Angeles weather for 38 years on NBC4, has won four local Emmy Awards for his comedy specials on Channel 4. His unique brand of comedy has been recognized by the late Johnny Carson and Burbank icon Jay Leno with eight appearance on the Tonight Show.
This special Comedy Benefit on October 13, 2019 is the latest installment in Coleman’s live stage shows. Defying Gravity is Coleman’s take on growing up and growing old. The Comedy Benefit is a fundraiser for The Toluca Lake Chamber of Commerce and the nonprofit Garry Marshall Theatre. All proceeds benefit the nonprofit organizations. The 90-minute show is suitable for all ages and will be followed with a locally curated dessert reception and a chance to meet Mr. Coleman.
