A Magical Place presents a night of comedy (and a wee bit of magic) featuring three of Northern California's finest, together on one stage.

Michael O'Connell, the self-described "wheelchair comedian", has been taking his hilarious tales of disabled living to comedy clubs from Seattle to L.A. He counts Hollywood celebrities among his fans, has worked with some of the best in the comedy business (including Bobby Slayton and Will Durst), has appeared on the Dennis Miller Radio Show and is the headliner on the "Comedians with Disabilities Act" comedy tour.

Keith Lowell Jensen is a veteran of comedy stages from coast to coast, and has shared those stages with the likes of Norm Macdonald, Doug Stanhope, Neil Hamburger, Tim Meadows and Robin Williams. Perhaps best known as the Atheist comedian on the "Coexist? Comedy Tour", Keith has appeared on "Lopez Tonight" on TBS, directed and starred in the documentary film "Why Lie? I Need a Drink", and his anxiously-awaited second comedy CD ("Cats Made of Rabbits") is about to be released, much to the delight of fans of his outlandish observational humor.

Mark Pitta came out of the San Francisco stand-up scene in the 1980s, and soon found LA calling. A national headliner, Mark has appeared on the Tonight Show under both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, was the host of Fox TV's "Totally Hidden Video" and hosted NBC's "Friday Night Videos", appeared on NBC comedies "Mad About You" and "Third Rock from the Sun", and has been featured on several Comedy Central programs. Mark has also opened for such famed musicians as Chris Issak, Celene Dion, Vanessa Williams, Smokey Robinson and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Mark hosts "Mark Pitta and Friends" at the heralded 142 Throckmorton Theatre each Tuesday night in Mill Valley, a showcase for up-and-coming talent that's been known to have drop-ins like Dana Carvey, Richard Lewis and Robin Williams.

Doors open at 7:30 PM, and the show begins at 8:00 PM. Seating is limited. Tickets are $10.00 at the door. The show is for 21 and older only.
