Laugh until you cry with the “relatable” and unrelentingly funny Robin Fox, the comedienne headliner coming to Sussex County Community College’s Performing Arts Center in April.

Robin Fox, hailing from New Jersey, calls herself “the mother of all comedians” and pulls from her experiences as a full-time mom and family woman to create a knockout act that speaks to the audience, parents and non-parents alike.

Robin touches on topics such as her 27-year marriage, her children, her aging parents, and life in suburbia. She leaves her audience in hysterics with conversation on the daily life of raising kids in today’s day and age! Robin gives her thoughts on everything life has to offer and will leave you stitches. She has the distinct ability to make her audience roar with laughter.

Fox is a regular on the New York City comedy circuit and was named the Grand Champion of Gotham Comedy Club’s 2012 Ladies of Laughter Competition. She has also appeared on television, including on “Nickmom Night Out,” and is a regular on satellite radio. She has made waves in some of the hottest clubs, including Caroline’s on Broadway and Comix.

Tickets for the comedy show are $20 in advance, click here or $22 at the door.

Dr. Francesco Ancona, professor of English at Sussex County Community College, will explore how to decipher the meanings behind your dreams. The presentation is also open to the public at no charge.

Saturday, November 21 at 7:30 pm;
Sunday, November 22 at 3 pm;
Performing Arts Center

Sussex County Community College will present A Murder is Announced, adapted by Leslie Darbon from a story by Agatha Christie.

The play opens with an announcement in the local paper that states the time and place of when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house’s several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, and a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns.

A Murder is Announced is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Following the Sunday 11/22 performance there will be a reception in the Lobby for the Exhibit of the works by Artist Claudia Arbizu sponsored by the Sussex County Arts & Heritage Council
