Weekend Planner — Comedy: ‘Stand Up Against Hunger’

Last modified: Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Mike Hanley took an 11-year hiatus from his career as a stand-up comedian to raise a family — and accumulated a load of new material during that time. “I tell people if you are married, you will laugh at my stories, if you are single, you will want to stay that way the rest of your life,” said the Mansfield native with a chuckle. He began performing again in 2011 and since has taken home top honors at numerous comedy competitions across New England.

On Friday, Hanley will headline “Stand Up Against Hunger,” a comedy show to benefit the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Also featuring Marty Caproni (“a comedian you do not want to miss seeing”) and Springfield funnyman Jess Miller (the show’s producer and emcee), the event begins at 8 p.m. at the Academy of Music in Northampton.

$20 general admission; $10 students, teachers, veterans, military personnel and public service-sector personnel (fire, police, EMT). 584-9032, academyofmusictheatre.tix.com
