CAPE MAY – Cape May Police Officer Tony Genaro said he can hardly believe the P.A.L. of Cape May will be holding its 10th annual Comedy Night Social on Friday, March 13, Cape May Convention Hall, 714 Beach Ave., Cape May. 

“It is hard to believe for sure,” he said.
Genaro said the Comedy Night Social was simply born out of a need to raise money for Police Athletic League activities. He said he was considering what to do that would be a little different than what everyone else was doing.
“It seemed to me at the time there were so many beef and beers out there we would be competing with, so I was looking for something a little different to do and came up with the comedy night idea,” he said.
