Comedy as a Weapon presents their 3rd annual benefit show, ‘Comedy ‘Cause We Care’, starring Donnell Rawlings of ‘Chappelle’s Show’ at the Academy of Music. This year’s fundraiser beneficiary was the Northampton Survival Center because of the wonderful and necessary services they provide to our community.
The night began with a ‘bang’ thanks to the explosive stage presence of the Mary Jane Jones band. This show was hosted by Nick at Nite’s ‘Funniest Mom in America’ Kim DeShields and Comedy as a Weapon founder Tim Lovett, followed by Vermont’s Kendall Farrell, and New York’s Barry Ribbs. Headliner Donnell Rawlings masterfully left the crowd with faces sore from laughter.
The Northampton Survival Center is a food pantry and resource center for people with food insecurity. The Survival Center plays a huge role in sharing resources to our community.
