To paraphrase an old adage, it takes a comedian to catch a comedian. Luckily, Rahmein Mostafavi, the commander of Cool Cow Comedy, has a bounty hunter's savvy when it comes to curating standup showcases. As a lifetime professional comic, Rahmein has graced the stages of institutions such as Caroline's on Broadway, DC Improv, and the Cape May Comedy Festival, and worked with everyone from Tim Meadows to The Sklar Brothers and Godfrey. He culls from this experience to deliver expertly vetted comedy shows to suburban venues usually bereft of big city laughs.

Hershey Theatre The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.
