PASADENA, Calif. — A sold-out crowd laughed out loud all night during An Evening of Comedy, hosted by the Tekeyan Cultural Association Metro Los Angeles chapter on Saturday, October 27 at The Rococo Room.
The event marked the kick-off for the new chapter that seeks to uphold the Armenian culture through arts and educational programming and activities.
Headlining the night’s comedy line-up was Harout Soghomonian, along with performers Maro Ajemian and Narine Avakian. All three drew on the nuances of daily life while connecting with audiences and eliciting laughter.
“Organizing an event like this requires devotion and determination and I saw that first-hand in the dynamic committee members,” said Soghomonian. “Keep gathering young crowds for future events and you will always be successful.”
A wide range of generations attended the event, socializing with friends and learning more about the TCA Metro Los Angeles chapter as committee member Mihran Toumajan served as the evening’s master of ceremonies and elaborated on the aim of the group. In addition to Toumajan, the other members of the group are Carl Bardakian, chairman, Aleksan Giragosian, vice-chairman, Shahnour Hovsepian, treasurer, Armand Yerjanian, secretary, Taleen Babayan, media, and members Maral Kojayan Beylerian, Hasmig Chilingirian Karayan, Talene Hachikian, Armen Toumajan and Arno Yeretzian.
“Congratulations to the TCA Metro LA committee for bringing a new generation of Armenians together,” said Ajemian. “I hope everyone enjoyed the show as much as I enjoyed performing.”
