BANGOR - The Bangor Region Leadership Institute (BRLI) will hold its annual Laugh-In on March 19 at Spectacular Events Center, 395 Griffin Road, Bangor. The Laugh-In is BRLI's largest fundraiser of the year and will feature local comedy troupes The Focus Group and Improv Acadia. Social hour begins at 6 p.m., 1950s inspired buffet at 7 p.m. and comedy at 8 p.m. Tickets are $35 for the general public and $30 for BRLI alumni and may be purchased via or by calling the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce at (207) 947-0307.

This year's Laugh-In theme is Back to the Decades. Going "Back to the Future," attendees are encouraged to dress in their favorite time period of the movie: 1885, 1955, 1985 or 2015. Prizes will be awarded for best costumes.

Founded in 2009 and based in Bangor, The Focus Group will open the show with their popular improvisational style. After intermission and dessert, Improv Acadia will take the stage. Calling themselves "a beacon of laughter on the rocky coast of Maine," the professional Bar Harbor troupe has been highly rated by the Bangor Daily News and Trip Advisor. Improv Acadia was founded in 2004 and its performances are inspired by audience suggestions and interactions.

Special thanks to Machias Savings Bank, this year's presenting sponsor, for their generous support.

The Bangor Region Leadership Institute, an intensive, regionally oriented leadership development program, is a program of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce. For more information, please contact Shelly Reilly at (207) 947-0307 or find BRLI online at
