Angels Camp, CA...Laughter For All is coming to Angels' on Saturday, August 15th at 7:30 PM. Free Dinner at 6:00 PM; Free Clothes and School Supplies (While supplies last).

Despite one’s race, religion, ethnicity, and social class; it has the capability of uniting people from different backgrounds together, serving as a common denominator to all. It is one thing to be a comedian who can conceive an uproar of laughter in a crowd. However, to be a comedian who can inspire a crowd at the same time is a rare find. Nazareth has been using his talents of bringing comic relief to his audience while directing his acts to help improve their well-being.
