"Smiling's my favorite!" Who said it best? Your local orthodontist or Will Ferrell in the holiday classic Elf? Ding. Ding! DING! You're right! it was Will, but the truth is here at Polite Ink Comedy, we say and DO it all the time, too. We think everyone should smile as much as possible. First, it uses less muscles than a frown so you're warding off pesky wrinkles, and second, if you're smiling you're releasing endorphins and endorphins make people happy. (Thanks Elle Woods!)  And, if smiling is in fact basically a fountain of youth, let's come together for an unforgettable night of smiling and laughter for the 5th Annual Polite Ink. Oh Watta Night! benefit performance for The Center for Youth (centerforyouth.net). 


With an unwavering commitment to youth in Rochester, The Center has provided services for over 50 years in our community that are rooted in a culture of belonging, growth, and understanding to ensure that youth voices are heard, respected, and followed. It delivers a runaway and homeless youth continuum of care, including emergency shelters, transitional housing & independent living, a maternity group home, two crisis nurseries, street outreach, counseling, workforce development, school-based services, and more. 


If you just like to smile like we do, and you like supporting our city's youth like we do, then this is the show for you!  The evening is filled with original sketch comedy alongside high-energy, quick-witted improv. You can sit back and watch or be a part of the show by shouting your suggestions and perhaps even joining us on stage (only if that's also your thing). Special guest Red Tie Variety. 



The reception and silent auction start at 6pm.

Appropriate for ages 13 & up.

100% of ticket proceeds go directly to The Center for Youth!
