GRASSROOTS COMEDY DC announces benefit stand-up comedy showcase for THE CHESAPEAKE CLIMATE ACTION NETWORK
Grassroots Comedy DC (GCDC), Washington’s newest and “meatiest” stand-up-comedy-for-a-cause consortium, announced today that their March, 2017 benefit showcase at the Bier Baron Tavern will be for the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN). Tickets can be purchased for $12 plus a donation of your choice here.
Robert Mac, winner of Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots competition, will headline the show.
“CCAN is a great group,” declared comic and GCDC co-founder Matt Dundas, as if they need his approval. “Quite worthy of an evening of quips and tart observations.”
For its part, CCAN works locally and regionally to prevent a climate catastrophe which, especially after the election, seems all but certain. But is their work pointless? Hardly!
The consequences of a worst-case outcome from climate change are so hilariously unthinkable – seriously: don’t think about it – there’s nothing left to do but try extremely hard to stop it.
“Climate change is tricky,” said Dundas. “Since it’s not very benign to most people, you really have to be a cold-hearted prick to laugh about climate change. Fortunately, we’re up to the task.”
