Medical-school students often intern at comedy clubs, learning the healing art of laughter and stitching up audience-members' sides that have split from hearty guffawing.

Hosted by the nationally renowned Catch A Rising Star Comedy Club, which helped launch the careers of Jerry Seinfeld and Robin Williams, the Catch! Beach Haven summer comedy lineup encourages visitors to snort, giggle, dance, and listen with glee. This summer's acts include Howard Stern Show veteran Jackie Martling's no-holds-barred assaults on propriety as well as the Fab Four–imitating Mahoney Brothers, covering Beatles hits with flawlessly affected Liverpudlian mien. Kevin Meaney's masterful impersonations further strain relationships between distrustful eyes and ears, the John Pizzarelli Quartet tickles eardrums with jazzy euphonies, and Mike Marino's versatile quiver of New Jersey–forged comedic arrows seek out funny bones with unerring accuracy. Shows take place at Surflight Theatre, which boasts a storied history that stretches back 60 years and provides a cozy enclosure for evening entertainment and containing stray chuckles for donation to needy sitcoms.
