BROOKLYN - Members of the Goodwill Seamark Psychosocial Clubhouse were treated to a free comedy show Tuesday in South Brooklyn.

Standup comics from the Gotham Comedy Foundation cracked jokes and put smiles on the faces of people in the crowd.

The nonprofit organization sends comedians to hospitals, nursing homes, senior centers and social service agencies to bring humor to the sick, aged or lonely. The events are part of their humor therapy program.

"If we can brighten people's days up, hopefully, then it's a good thing," said comedian Giulio Gallarotti.
