A portion of the proceeds from these shows will benefit Armed Services Arts Partnership, a non-profit that directly empowers veterans and military family members to re-enter, find a voice, and thrive in their communities through the arts, including stand-up comedy. I will be bringing three graduates from their comedy bootcamps to give them an opportunity and to help them experience and share in a great night of comedy, both for the audience and veterans themselves. This is a special night not to be missed. I often say “laughter is the surprise recognition that we are not alone.”
The Laugh Button website put together a list of 10 comedians who have put their country before themselves and have since gone on to serve a second career on the stand-up comedy stage. I have great admiration for the veterans on this list. I’ve shared stages, travels & my life with many of them. Very cool to be included.
