8th Annual Comedy for Charity at The Fox Theatre
In its eighth year, Comedy for Charity is presenting Laugh ‘til It Hurts, a two-hour event of nonstop entertainment featuring seven comedians, two dance troupes and even a juggler, from 6 to 8 p.m., April 22, at The Fox Theatre. This special one-night event will raise money for violence awareness and prevention.
“This show will be hilarious and it’s all for a wonderful cause—to make our community a safer place. The mission is to raise money to increase awareness about the problem of violence. We want people to ‘give ‘til it hurts’,” shares Suzie Sexton, executive director of Comedy for Charity.
Laugh ‘til It Hurts features headliner Jason Love, one of today’s best clean comedians, who has appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, America’s Got Talent and over 20 national broadcasts. He engages the audience, plays music and is a favorite presenter for companies like Google, Chevron, Farmers and Costco.
Local celebrity David Fitzsimmons will be the emcee for the evening. Additional talent includes feature comedian Henry Barajas, a Tucson favorite who now resides in Los Angeles; Nancy Stanley, creator of The Estrogen Hour; Elliot Glicksman, attorney and comedian; Linda Ray, writer and comedian; Suzie Sexton, comedian and event producer; a dance performance by senior tap group The Rodeo City Wreckettes, Hip Hop; and a juggler.
