Comedy for Charity: Thank you for serving benefit honoring Veterans at the Fox Theater

 

THANK YOU FOR SERVING: THE BENEFIT

AN EVENING OF ENTERTAINMENT HONORING VETERANS

RALLY POINT, LA FRONTERA ARIZONA: RALLY UP! VETERANS HELPING VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES: WE HONOR YOUR DEDICATION, SERVICE AND VALOR.

Honorary Chair: Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild

“This year’s show, emceed by David Fitzsimmons, is an adult variety show for mature audiences (ages 15+). It will feature Tommy Blaze, who is a veteran of the comedy stage. Tommy has been called America’s premiere relationship comic. For over two decades, he has entertained audiences from all walks of life. Blaze has performed in such diverse arenas as television, film, comedy clubs, colleges, military bases, casinos, cruise ships, and churches.

Tommy sums up his broad appeal with a simple statement: “Wherever you find men and women together, that ‘s where I’m needed.” He has appeared in the NBC mega-hit Friends, and movies like Me Again and Marriage Retreat. He also writes films, including Brother White and God’s Not Dead.

To round out the talent, there will be feature comedy act Butch Lord, from Dallas, Texas; Michael Garvey, from Annapolis, Maryland, a veteran who was shot twice in Afghanistan, was awarded the Purple Heart and who now does comedy with his service dog Liberty: a dance performance by senior tap group The Rodeo City Wreckettes; Hip hop by the award winning Egokillaz; and music by Los Guapos, Janee Starr, as well as local musician Kate Becker and her band. 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 this year is to raise money (hopefully a lot of money) and awareness about the problem of veterans committing suicide.

Got your taxes done yet? If so, stop by this show hosted by Tucson’s all-woman improv team for some more laughs on Tax Day, April 15, 2015.

Message from comedian (and attorney)  Suzie Sexton:
“Let’s celebrate Tax Day by going to see a wicked funny comedy show to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I will be performing some candid jokes about what happens when I do my taxes!.”

Can’t wait to hear more tax tips.   As comedians say: the only things in life that are certain are death and taxes.
