Friv Fridays: After Work Frivolities Message Board › Dave's Comedy Show and Fundraiser
Did you know fellow Frivver Dave is a comedian and a really good guy? Well, he is. In fact, David is producing an improv comedy show July 9th at 8pm at the Black Swan Tavern (2nd floor) to raise funds for the Joanna Downey Fund (http://www.joannadowney.com/). This fund supports a great woman in the Toronto comedy scene who has been stricken with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Admission is pay what you can.
I checked out the site and read that the disease has robbed Joanna of the power of speech and therefore her ability to perform and earn a living. Being able to speak is such a basic joy of human existence, it's horrible to imagine life without this ability - especially for a comedian.
The Black Swan is conveniently located at 154 Danforth near the Broadview Subway station and Dave has pulled together the funniest folks he knows to put on a great show all made up on the spot.
Doors open at 7:30 and Show starts at 8pm.
Hope to see you there for a fun night in aid of good cause!
