BackFat Presents 75 COMEDIANS FOR A CAUSE: A FUNDRAISER FOR BADASS BROOKLYN ANIMAL RESCUE
Mar 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
On Saturday, March 19, BackFat Variety teams up with Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue for a comedy marathon fundraiser at 61 Local in Cobble Hill. A $10 suggested donation will go directly to Badass Brooklyn, a non-profit rescue group that finds homes for dogs in high kill shelters.
On the evening’s comedy menu is…
7 PM March Madness Joke Contest: 64 standup comedians deliver their best one-liners in this rapid-fire, bracket-style contest. Come watch, laugh, and vote on which comedian should be crowned Best Joke Writer in Brooklyn.
9:30 – Midnight: Characters, standup, music & more! The second half of the night features sets from some of the most accomplished comedians in Brooklyn, like MYQ KAPLAN (Conan, Letterman, Last Comic Standing) GIULIA ROZZI (The Jim Gaffigan Show, Chelsea Lately, MTV, Moth GrandSlam Champ), SAM EVANS (Just For Laughs Montreal), improv singer REBECCA VIGIL, PATRICK HASTIE (Winner of The PIT’s Standup Showdown), CHRIS CALOGERO (Not Quite Midnight) and KALE BODANDOVS (Devour Hour Comedy).
Coordinators from Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue will have a booth in the event space to collect donations.
61 Local is located at 61 Bergen Street, just off the G/F trains to Bergen, and the show is in the mezzanine. BackFat’s 75 Comedians for a Cause is hosted by standup Emily Winter (TVLand, Fusion TV), and musicians Larry Mancini and John Payne.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR COMING OUT TO SUPPORT THE PUPS!!!
