The intimate evening of comedy and hope will boast the talents of Tony winners Matthew Broderick and Elaine Stritch as well as comedian Jim Breuer and FOX TV star Sue Costello. Conceived and hosted by Costello, the evening, according to press notes, is the first in a series that will "re-create the intimacy and feeling of an old fashioned artists salon but with the emphasis on comedy and fun. Actors, writers, and comedians will tell stories from their own lives and recall times when hope helped them to overcome their fears."

In a statement Costello said, "I think, with all the bad news and the hard times we're facing, we could use a fun night out filled with laughter and hope. I envisioned a beautiful, intimate setting where people could meet and mingle and not only enjoy our celebrity storytellers but also each other. We're all ready for a good laugh."

The evening will begin with mingling and cocktails at 7 PM followed by the 8 PM show.

The Penthouse at Barney's is located at 61st Street and Madison Avenue. For more information and to purchase tickets go to
