Comedy Series: Don Friesen – July 25, 8pm

Friesen has recently taken his smart, savvy, and highly-caffeinated comedy to the stage at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA, for the taping of his new Showtime one-hour special titled “Ask Your Mom.” Location California Theatre 351 Railroad Ave Old Town Pittsburg Tickets General Admission: $18-$21 Online Tickets http://www.pittsburgcaliforniatheatre.com Contact Carolyn August Phone (925) 427-1611 Email info@pittsburgcaliforniatheatre.com
