They say that laughter is the best medicine, and when used properly, I strongly agree that it is. Using comedy as a fundraiser is a great idea for any organization or group, and some local comedians are putting their ability to get some chuckles to raise funds for a great cause this Sunday night July 7, 2013. The show is hosted by Fourfourteen Entertainment and will be held at Tierney’s Tavern on Valley Road in Montclair, starting at 8:00pm.
To benefit PAWS in Montclair, local comedy scene favorite Natty Bumpercar has agreed to sacrifice himself as the “victim” in a celebrity style roast featuring some of the area’s funniest and sharpest comics. Natty has been performing comedy for over 20 years and has been a staple in the North Jersey scene for the past 4 years. He has been seen at Greenwich Village Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, and was part of the Jersey City Comedy Festival. He was on MTV’s Lip Service and has a weekly podcast. He also has performed improv comedy at NY’s UCB and as part of New Jersey’s Dumb Kids In The Back.
Natty will be roasted by some of the funniest comedians from NYC and NJ, who are donating their time to benefit PAWS. The show roster includes Buddy Flip, Christine Grillon, Joe Carney, Kevin Garifo, Brett Druck, Rich McDonald and others and is hosted by Adam Lucidi.
PAWS Montclair is a non-profit humane organization that has celebrated over 35 years of helping homeless animals in their community. http://www.pawsmontclair.org/adopt.html
