Jim Davis of Delmont knew how to make people laugh, whether it was cracking jokes or walking onstage at the intermission of an Apple Hill Playhouse show wearing a coconut bra and a hula skirt.

“He may not have been an actor,” his wife, Charlene, said last fall. “But he certainly was a bit of a ham.”

The Delmont Public Library will host an evening of open mic comedy on March 16 in tribute to Davis, who died in June. The event begins at 7 p.m. at the Lamplighter Restaurant, 6566 William Penn Highway, Salem Township.

Tickets are $20 each, or $150 for a table of eight. There is a limit of 80 tickets, and the event is for those ages 21 and older. Proceeds will benefit the library.

“He enjoyed life to the fullest,” Delmont librarian Denni Grassel said of Davis. “He just made life fun for us. Whenever he’d walk into the library, I’d always smile because I knew something fun was about to happen.”

For more, or to buy tickets, call 724-468-5329.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
