Final Night Gala with Entertainment by Richard Jeni and ABI’s Indubitable Equivalents

Headlining the ABI Final Night Gala is Richard Jeni, a comedian TV Guide has called “flat-out hilarious” and People Magazine agrees, quipping he is “thrilling to watch.” Jeni is a regular on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno and “Late Night” with David Letterman and he can be seen on HBO where he made his solo debut this winter in a riotous hour of urban insights, off-the-wall characterizations and couch-potato humor.

Following Jeni’s performance will be ABI’s house band, the Indubitable Equivalents, jamming to classic rock of the 60s and 70s.
