Comedy for a Cause: Comedians Provide Laughs and Raise Money for Spinal Cord Injuries

Posted By on Wed, Nov 20, 2013 at 1:20 PM


There's a reason the quote "laughter is the best medicine," is so well know -- while it isn't medicinal, laughter does provide the ability to heal the spirit. And tomorrow night, comedians will bridge the gap from laughter to helping those who are suffering from physical injuries.

A quarterly event, Comedy for a Spinal Cause, provides the public with comedic relief and raises funds for those who dealing with serious spinal injuries. The latest comedy event, happening tomorrow, will feature various standup comics, including Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh.

This particular show of Comedy for a Spinal Cause is raising funds for a young woman who was left a quadriplegic after a car crash in 2009. They're hoping to raise $60,000 in order to make a vehicle adaptive for her needs so that she'll be able to drive herself to her therapy appointments, and gain more independence.

If this sounds like the event for you,Comedy for a Cause is tomorrow night, Nov. 21, at the Barrel House (80 Tehama) at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
