Comedian Adara Almonte passed away recently.
She produced and hosted the Laugh Force comedy series and was a sweet and talented girl who provided plenty of stage time for the comics in the city. Hers is the show I used for my short video "Performing For Ghosts". There happened to be only two audience members watching by the end of the night, but she went out of her way to let me have a 20 minute set in preparation for a road gig. I only used 5 of those minutes, but I really appreciated her generosity.
I have performed on Adara's show when the place was packed. This girl could network! And she also had a league of faithful friends who would come out and support often.
