Philly comedians get serious about Haiti

01/20/2010

In the week since Jan 12th’s horrific earthquake, citizens of the world have turned toward Haiti… offering their thoughts, prayers and most tangibly, their donations. Here in Philadelphia, everywhere you look there are organizations taking up relief causes, and our comedians are no different. There are a number of shows coming up that are donating ticket proceeds to relief efforts. As a matter of fact, the next four nights all have comedy events benefiting Haiti.

Here’s the (hopefully growing) list:

WEDNESDAY @ 9PM
BEDTIME STORIES | CONNIE’S RIC RAC, 1132 S NINTH ST
Proceeds to benefit the Samuel Dalembert Foundation

THURSDAY @ 10PM
KING FRIDAY | STUDIO 34, 4522 BALTIMORE AVE
