Stand-up comedian Gary Gulman brings his wry observations and semi-serious deadpan wit to the Stroum Jewish Community Center’s newly renovated Cultural Arts venue on Mercer Island for an exclusive, one-night-only engagement on Dec. 1.

Gulman, a “Last Comic Standing” finalist and “Inside Amy Schumer” alumnus, blends endearing self-deprecation with warm amusement at everyday experience. He is among only a few comedians to have appeared on every single late-night comedy program. He also had a small role in Megan Griffiths’s 2013 film, “Lucky Them,” which was shot on location in and around Seattle. Gulman’s 20th anniversary tour, the “It’s About Time Tour,” has sold out theaters across the country.

The SJCC’s 358-seat cultural arts venue is in its second season of programming, following an extensive renovation that added a stage, luxurious seating, and Dolby Digital sound.

Gulman’s performance begins at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. for a pre-show happy hour (cash bar). Tickets are $25, or $20 for seniors, students, youth, and SJCC members.

Tickets to this event, rescheduled from earlier in 2016, will be offered to those who purchased tickets for Gulman’s Feb. 18 performance, which was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
