It’s been said that a day without laughter is a day wasted. The JW House Young Professional Advisory Committee plans on making February 7 a night full of laughs at its First Annual Comedy Night event.
The show, which will be at San Jose’s ComedySportz (288 South 2nd St., San Jose, 95113) and hosted by up and coming comedian Cody Woods, is being used as a fundraising event for the house.
“Our goal is to have a night of hilarity and hope, while fundraising through ticket sales,” said co-chairman Alicia Rangel. “We are doing this to ensure that families can continue to count on JW House and to expand the community that allows JW’s dream to continue on. We want our audience to become advocates.”
YPAC was trying to come up with a fun, entertaining way to raise money for a cause each member cares deeply about. As ideas got thrown around, the thought of putting on a comedy show seemed like a fresh idea and a great way to bring people together since laughter truly is the best medicine.
In addition to Woods, Joe Bates, Priya Prasad, Ori Zakok, Gail Williams, Greg “G” Williams, and Daniel Carrillo are volunteering their time to perform at the event. Comedian Tony Harrison will headline the 18 and over show.
Tickets, which can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, are $20 in advance and $22 at the door. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and doors open at 7. Parking validation is available for the adjacent parking garage and additional donations to JW House will be accepted at the event.
YPAC was formed 2012 to promote the JW House goal of hope, hospitality and healing. The group is in its infancy and looking for volunteers to help with event planning and fundraising. For more information on JW House visit www.jwhouse.org.
