Description

Please join us for the Las Vegas Premier of I Am Battle Comic May 31st at 9:30pm. 100% of the ticket sales will go to For Veterans Sake Foundation helping veterans deal with PTSD.

I AM BATTLE COMIC follows a group of comedians on a mission to provide laughter for U.S troops stationed in Afghanistan, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Iraq. Gripping insights about the highs and lows facing the men and women in the military are balanced with wonderful laughs as the Comedians perform, along with heartfelt interviews with top professional comedians (including George Lopez, Dave Attel, Jeff Capri, Don Barnhart, Jr., Bob Kubota, Slade Ham, Wayne Federman, Tammy Pescatelli, Murray Valeriano, Jennifer Rawlings, Shawn Halpin, George Wallace And Dick Capri).

REVIEWS:

"Entertaining and inspiring... Supporting the troops was never so much fun" - Michael Dunaway, Paste Magazine

"Amazingly deep feelings along with the laughs, both from the comedians performing and the audiences as well. Brady does a masterful job of capturing the emotions on both halves of the performance equation, as well as compiling an engaging and inventive film." - Marc Hershon, The Huffington Post

"A moving documentary about a morale-lifting, stand-up tour that'll make you laugh while bringing a tear to your eye in appreciation of our soldiers' selfless sacrifices." - Kam Williams, Baret News Syndicate

"An excellent heartfelt film that pays tribute to our troops…and the comedians who travel the world to make them laugh." - Judd Apatow

"This documentary is full of laughs, but it's unique insight into the lives of our troops, far from home, searching for normalcy amidst the chaos of war, that got me." - Peter Berg, Director, 'Lone Survivor'

I Am Battle Comic is sure to spark conversation and create a deep appreciation for our military non-profits and families. In March of 2016, comedian/filmmaker Jordan Brady traveled to the frontlines with four professional comics to perform for our military men and women and visited many of the troops based in Nevada including the 17th Sustainment Brigade. The team brought thank you letters from Gibson Middle School to give to the troops and the camera follows the comics confronting the highs and lows facing them and our brave men and women in uniform while weaving in current events such as the brutal terrorist attacks in Brussels, Turkey, and Iraq. The dangers faced at the front and around the world underscore the mission to provide laughter for the men and women serving in our military.

100% of ticket sales from the Las Vegas Premier will go to For Veterans Sake Foundation - For Veteran’s Sake Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 Non-profit organization. They’re main focus is dealing with PTSD that veterans are suffering from. The method they use is simple, work with the strongest symptom first and teach them how to turn it in to a positive in their lives. This is done by using highly trained service dogs that are trained to their specific needs and a mixture of Hypnosis with some interrogation techniques. All this is done at NO COST to the veteran or their immediate family. For Veterans Sake believes in doing everything possible to keep the family together. http://forveteranssake.org

Q/A with filmmakers and artists to begin at the end of film.
