Italian food, comedy, and karaoke – this combination made for a fun evening at Paradiso Restaurant in Alexandria. The night started off with a comedy show called Punchlines at Paradiso, produced by Laugh Local Comedy. With their host Adrian Harris and comedians such as Franqi French, the comedy show was a hit with party-goers.
Next, Janet Callahan and Ron Gray of Finest Sounds Entertainment hosted Paradiso’s Annual White Karaoke Party. Paradiso features karaoke every Thursday evening, but on this night, participants don their best white shirts and sing and dance their hearts out under black lights.
Paradiso has served Italian fare in Alexandria for more than 20 years and hosts many events throughout the year.
