Event description
GCDC closes out 2019 with a spectacular comedy show for hunger relief, benefitting Rise Against Hunger's school feeding initiatives!

About this Event

"If you ate pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry?"

-George Carlin

Hunger. Without creative comedic relief, it's no laughing matter. Just ask the more than 821 MILLION people in the world who don't even get the food they need to live a healthy life. Or better yet- help them find something to eat!

It's the end of 2019, and much of the world is still facing hunger while a small fraction of others have access to more food than they could ever eat if their lives depended on it. This is, in fact, a life or death issue. Grassroots Comedy DC has seen enough, which is why we're partnering once again with our friends at Rise Against Hunger- an organization that seeks to end hunger by 2030- something they can't do alone.

Proceeds from this event will go support Rise Against Hunger's initiatives around the globe, like school feeding. According to Rise Against Hunger: "While communities work toward a future in which they can thrive, vulnerable people around the globe still have basic, immediate needs. That’s why Rise Against Hunger supports safety net programs that provide nourishment and bolster the difficult journey out of poverty. Our meals are served in schools to encourage increased enrollment and attendance. Parents have peace of mind knowing their children will receive nourishment at school, and children are able to focus on their studies rather than where their next meal will come from. Rise Against Hunger meals provide kids with the nutrients they need to excel in school and break the cycle of poverty."

If this somehow isn't enough to convince you this is a show worth going to, it will also feature some of the best comics in the Mid-Atlantic: with nationally touring headliner John Conroy, feature Haywood Turnipseed Jr., and rapidly rising comedy star Franqi French, the show is sure to be a hilarious treat. We'll also have another live recording of the GCDC podcast, the Do Good Feel Good Show.

Join GCDC, Rise Against Hunger, and amazing comics to fill your belly with drinks and laughter for a night of hilarity in the name of this incredibly important cause!

*Tickets may be available at the door for $20
