New Years at Lake Ontario Playhouse with comedians and a ‘film festival’


The Lake Ontario Playhouse, 103 W. Main St., Sackets Harbor, will host a New Year’s Eve comedy show tonight, followed by a “New Year’s Day Hang-Over Film Festival.”

The fest, starting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, will feature the film “Game Night” by comedian/director Sean Lynch, who won the award for best director at this fall’s International Film festival in New York City. The film showcases comedian Mark Riccadonna.

Mr. Lynch and Mr. Riccadonna will perform Wednesday before the showing of about a half dozen short films by Mr. Lynch.

The Facebook page for “Game Night” describes it as a “comedy drama about the unromantic realities of modern romance and the wonderfully awkward games people play for sex, love and everything in between.”

Mr. Lynch has been a writer for MTV for 14 years. He has written for MTV’s “Celebrity Death Match” and was one of the cast members for Dennis Leary’s “Contest Search Light” on Comedy Central. Besides those shows, Mr. Lynch is a writer for the Food Network’s “Restaurant Stake Out.”

Tickets to the film festival are $5, but free to those who attend the Playhouse’s New Year’s Eve Show at 9:30 p.m. today. Tonight’s show will feature Mr. Riccadonna, Mr. Lynch and Amy Milano. Tickets are $25.
