COMEDY FOR CHARITY is proud to present Stand Up to Stop Violence V, SHOW ME THE FUNNY. This epic event will feature John Heffron, winner of Last Comic Standing’s second season, who has appeared on Comedy Central Presents, Chelsea Lately, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. John also produced his own DVD, Middle Class Funny.
One of Tucson’s finest choirs, the Reveille Men’s Chorus, headed by Conductor Shawn Cullen, is back by public demand from the last show, where they wowed the audience with Lady Gaga tunes. They will sing a few songs that will raise the audience up. To round out the show, there will be a hip hop dance to contemporary music.
Music! Dance! Comedy! And it’s all for a wonderful cause—to make our community a safer place while at the same time the audience is entertained by a first class show. Our mission is to raise money (hopefully a lot of money) and awareness about the problem of violence. This year the show will help Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse and Tucson’s January 8th Foundation.
Roxanna Green will be selling and signing her book, As Good As She Dreamed: The Redeeming Story of the Angel of Tucson Christina Taylor Green. Our very own David Fitzsimmons will be cast in his ubiquitous role as our Emcee, and Nancy Stanley will be our Feature Act.
Opening Act, Suzie Sexton will do stand up with jokes about relationships and current events. She has performed at LAFFS Comedy Café; The Comedy Spot and the Tucson Improv, and opened for headliners Flip Orley and Bill Dawes.
