In My Funny Valentine, celebrated comedians Pat Hazell and Karen Morgan join forces for a hilarious and heartwarming night of comedy. The duo find the humor in relationships, dating, parenting, family life, and offer relationship advice during a comedic Q & A with the audience.

Showtime once declared him one of the five funniest people in America. Hazell performed his signature show The Wonder Bread Years at the ECC Arts Center in 2015. A grand salute to the baby-boomer generation, The Wonder Bread Years also aired on PBS where they referred to Hazell as “America’s foremost pop culture anthropologist.”
