The Board of Directors of LTV want to extend a “Thank You” to all those who supported our July 12th Comedy Night to benefit LTV and our mission!

East Hampton and the East End!

You filled the house! You came, you saw, you laughed!  You made our Live Auction a success, and your random live donations help LTV to continue to be the East End’s premiere Public Access TV Station and Media Center. We applaud you!

Elayne Boosler and Michele Balan!

You killed it!  Thanks to comedy legend Elayne Boosler, and ‘Last Comic Standing’ finalist Michele Balan, for a great evening of laughs!
