COMEDY ACTS TO APPEAR AT HOMELESS SHELTER

 NEW YORK, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Comedy comes to the homeless when the Toyota Comedy Festival brings four acts to the Salvation Army's Borden Avenue Veterans Residence in Long Island City on Thursday, June 3, 8-9 p.m.
 While comedians participating in the Toyota Festival have performed in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the Apollo Theater and the Village Gate, this is the first appearance at a homeless facility.
 Sponsored by WMXV-FM Radio, the four comic acts performing for the 400 residents of the Borden Avenue Veterans Residence include John Kalwie, Sarge, Triplets: A Comic Trip, and John Rubin. All were winners of Alan King's King Point Productions Auditions.
 King, an institution in the field of comedy, is the architect and chief booster of the Toyota Comedy Festival, which runs to June 12 and features 150 comedians.
 Borden Avenue gained national recognition as the first homeless shelter in the nation for veterans when it opened five and a half years ago. Other veterans shelters in Boston and throughout the country have been modeled after Borden Avenue.
