Review: Comedy Combats Childhood Cancer

Cancer Websites, Fundraising Events — By on October 22, 2008 at 10:21 am

The Mayhem and Madness Comedy Tour for a Cause, co-founded by Jimmy Q and Rich Shultis uses the gift of comedy to provide support for the Fight against childhood cancer.

Their goal is to heighten public awareness and raise money with laughter, for children and their family members who are fighting the battle with cancer. Proceeds for events benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Pediatric Cancer Center in Manhattan.  To date they have raised over $2,800! Every Thursday Night at 8pm on their stage at the Limerick House in Manhattan, some of the top comedians in the country perform to help raise money for Pediatric Cancer.  There is NEVER A COVER.  Audience members are encouraged to make a donation of their choice at the end of each show.  ALL OF THE PROCEEDS go to Fight Children’s Cancer.

They also reward some random audience members with FREE tickets to 2 of NYC’s hottest comedy clubs at the end of each show.

Every month, Soul Joel Productions teams up with Mayhem & Madness to bring you some of the top comedians in the country to help raise money for kids’ cancer.  Each Soul Joel Production brings in award winning headliners from comedy’s best media including Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central, HBO, Showtime, MTV, Sirius Satellite Radio, and Opie & Anthony. Comedians from all over the Tri-State area perform high energy shows guaranteed to make you laugh. Once a month a show is held at The Gotham Comedy Club in New York City.

Laughter CAN make a difference!  Visit: Soul Joel Productions/Mayhem & Madness
(The Limerick House is located at 69 W. 23rd Street just east of 6th Avenue in Manhattan).
