Peninsula College to hold free comedy hour Friday

PORT ANGELES — Lara Starcevich, a professor of drama and speech, has a prescription for the wet-weather blues.

She calls it the “Non-PC PC Comedy Club Showcase” — as in the annual non-politically correct Peninsula College comedy hour — set for 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Little Theater.

Admission is free to the show, which will run the gamut from sketches and skits to stand-up, send-ups and improvisation.

“What’s better for your mind-set on a cloudy day than comedy?” Starcevich said.

Then the professor poured it on a little more.

“They say that when you laugh, it actually makes you smarter.

“If you were given a math problem before and after a good laugh, you would solve the problem quicker after the laugh than before.”

Another reason Starcevich gave for attending Friday’s festivity: “We are all just very attractive people who deserve a lot of attention on a daily, minute-by-minute basis.”

To find out more about this and other free activities at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., visit or the college’s Facebook page.
