About this Event

Hurricanes. Something you should never want to rock you unless it’s done by the 1984 hit by the Scorpions.

Yet hurricanes have been rocking a lot of people lately, in the worst of ways. Hurricane Dorian - the fifth Category Five storm in the Atlantic in four years - has left has left over 76,000 people affected in the Bahamas, and at the moment of writing this, continues to hammer away at the coast of Canada after working it’s way up the shoreline. Storm walls and other affordable and supportive housing structures capable of withstanding increasingly strong winds, waters, and the like must be built to stop the pattern of so many people losing housing and other basic necessities needed to live in the face of these disasters. With so many competing funding priorities in Washington, federal relief efforts are strained - but we must build THOSE walls!

Grassroots Comedy DC has seen enough, and is building a fundraiser comedy show of epic proportions, with proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity’s disaster response fund to assist with housing where it has been lost by disasters, along with other long-term recovery efforts for communities impacted by past, present, and future storms.

If that’s not enough, we also have an incredible lineup, which may actually be our best yet. With NYC based comedian Ryan Donahue(Jimmy Kimmel Live, HBO’s Crashing) headlining, DC heavy hitter Haywood Turnipseed Jr.(Kennedy Center, Bentzen Ball) featuring, a special comedy guest from the UK and more, it’s bound to be a blast of hilarity to so hard you’ll likely forget that you’re attendance is actually helping others. Not only that, but we’ll also feature yet another live recording of GCDC’s Do Good Feel Good Show - this time exploring disaster risk, reduction, and response with a real live Habi-tater who has provided boots on the ground disaster relief and now works to ensure communities around the world are more resilient to disasters. Is our special guest Jimmy Carter? Only one way to find out.

So what are you waiting for? Grab a friend or five to laugh in support of safe, decent and affordable housing and buy your tickets now while you still can!

*Tickets may be available at the door for $20
