The ALSJCC's much-anticipated "Chopshticks" is an annual local tradition of great Comedy and fabulous Chinese Food. It's a yearly sell-out and tickets must be purchased in advance.

This year's program features two rising and very funny comics from the East Coast: Lenny Marcus and Brad Zimmerman and hot Bay Area newcomer Mo Mandel.

Lenny abandoned the life of a computer programmer for the security and benefits of doing standup! Since he began his second career, he's performed at the Montreal Comedy Festival, Aspen Comedy Festival and has on NBC's Friday Night and Comedy Showcase with Louie Anderson. He's also been featured in commercials and short films. He has a full calendar of comedy showcases at top venues around the country. This funny guy hails from Oceanside, Long Island.

Brad is well-known for his acting, writing and stand up talents. He has opened for many famous comedians like George Carlin and Joan Rivers in Las Vegas and other major comedy venues. His one-man show "Atta Boy Zimmy" recently ran at The Flea Theatre in New York that showcases his gifted storytelling skills. He's had a number of tv and movie roles, including playing Johnny Sack's lawyer in the award-winning Sopranos series on HBO.

Mo was born in Boonville, CA to hippie parents. After graduating college with an extracurricular degree in social rejection, Mo first attempted standup in London. Since then he's been playing all the best venues on the West Coast, including Carolines, Punchline, Cobb's Comedy Club, The Gotham, Seattle Underground and the Hollywood Improv. Come see this young comedic sensation before he gets a sitcom and quits performing stand up, or before he doesn't get a sitcom and quits stand-up anyway to make a living!

Attendees will enjoy a gourmet vegetarian (and fish) dinner at Mings, a beautiful Chinese restaurant in Palo Alto noted for its fine dining and upscale atmosphere.

$70 each or $700 for tables of 10.
