The Christmas season is all about giving and this Sunday I have a gift for you. I was recently asked to put together a comedy show that would raise money for a local charity. I rounded up some of the best local talent and we will be performing this Sunday December 8th at 7:30PM at the Heart and Crown in the Byward Market. My good friends Dan Ciggy, Tim Riel, Rebecca Reeds, Colin O’Brien, Kyle Pooler, Greg Houston and myself will be donating our time and talents to give you a fun filled evening during this busy time of year. Tickets are $10 and all proceeds go to Valerie’s Flutter Foundation.
All the information on how to pick up tickets can be found here or at the door. Thank you so much for your support. I hope to see you on Sunday night.
This article could be written about any recently deceased celebrity but we’re using Paul Walker because he’s relevant. Whenever a celebrity dies there is always the person who say something like
“BUT PEOPLE ARE KILLED IN DRONE STRIKES EVERYDAY IN PAKISTAN, WHY ISN’T THE INTERNET CRYING OVER THEM?”
Here’s a quick blurb on how the news works.
The news is meant to inform YOU (yes, you the person reading this blurb in the brackets with the spelling errror) and let you know what NEW things are happening in YOUR LIFE. The root word of news is new. So if people are “killed everyday” is it really new(s)? Harsh statement but it’s true. Sure those Pakistanis who lost their lives 5 minutes ago were most likely great people, but what did they do for you? You’ve seen a Paul Walker movie (your girlfriend too) and he also helped a lot of people around the world. Paul Walker was more involved in your life than people in Pakistan whose names you don’t know. The news reports on the issues that affect your life and it’s not their fault that you like The Fast and the Furious way more than middle eastern issues. That’s how the news works.
On the flip side, pick up a newspaper from Pakistan and you’ll find out that no one gives a damn that Brian Earl Spilner won’t be ordering the tuna anymore.
