Businesswomen’s Fall Lunch Featuring Comedian/actress Patty Ross November 6

The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce Businesswomen’s Committee presents their annual fall luncheon on Wednesday, November 6th, featuring Comedian-actress Patty Ross.

She has experienced both ups and downs in a crazy show business career. This year she’s performed at the annual Gloucester Rotary Comedy Night and appeared in three movies, HBO’s Clear History with Larry David, Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups 2, and the Sandra Bullock-Melissa McCarthy comedy The Heat. She also hobnobbed with Dick Cavett at the Nantucket Comedy Festival, and has previously performed at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, the Plymouth Comedy Festival, and others.

In 2012, she appeared in Adam Sandler’s That’s My Boy and the Farrelly Brothers’ The Three Stooges. Among a slew of TV appearances, she’s appeared in Damon Wayans’ My Wife and Kids, Two Guys and a Girl, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, Roseanne, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Ross’s presentation will focus on her career growth over the years and how she got to where she is today.

The Businesswomen’s fall luncheon will be held at the Castle Manor Inn, 141 Essex Avenue, Gloucester, at 12:00 pm, on Wednesday November 6th with registration and check-in starting at 11:30 am. Tickets for members are $40 week/day of and $50 for future members.

The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce Businesswomen’s Committee is dedicated to the growth of Cape Ann business and the professional development of the Chamber’s businesswomen members.
