How could the Montclair Film Festival top last year’s fundraiser that paired Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart for a hilarious conversation?
MFF organizers announced Monday that Colbert will appear with Jimmy Fallon for a one-of-a-kind event benefiting the third annual festival.
Jimmy Fallon in Conversation with Stephen Colbert will take place at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 8 p.m.
This is the third such event with Colbert, a member of the Festival’s Advisory Board and a Montclair resident, after conversations with Jon Stewart and Jonathan Alter in 2012 and 2011.
“We’re so fortunate to have Stephen’s support for the third year in a row and grateful that Jimmy Fallon agreed to participate,” said MFF Chairman Bob Feinberg. “Each one of these conversations is unique to Stephen’s guest and Jimmy is such an open, engaging personality…it’s sure to be a great night.”
The evening will provide a behind-the-scenes look at two of America’s most celebrated television personalities on the eve of Fallon’s move to host The Tonight Show.
Tickets range from $59.50 to $149.50 and will go on sale Friday, Oct. 18, at 10 a.m.
For tickets, call 1-888-GO-NJPAC (1-888-466-5722) or visit www.njpac.org.
Premium VIP seating at $250 per ticket can be purchased directly through MFF at www.montclairfilmfest.org.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the third annual Montclair Film Festival, scheduled for April 28 to May 4, 2014.
