Heavy Mental Comedy Fundraiser
with Mike MacDonald, Melanie Rose, Mark Hughes, and Jerri Jerri (MC)
"You won't want to miss this one. This is the first show ever for Heavy Mental Comedy and it's going to be a good one.
Jerri Jerri our lovely MC - she is a fixture in the DTES as she works at FUC (First United Church) Shelter. She will have us in stitches with some stories that are so bizarre and funny that you just can't make that shit up.
Mark B. Hughes - He's my hero! and he used to love heroine. I am so happy to have him tell super funny jokes about being an addict and his time in prison. He's my kinda guy!
Melanie Rose - that's me newly free from opiates myself. I know all too well the pain of mental health and addiction. I am lucky to have ability to speak about it in a very real and funny way. I like to make light of my mistakes, as there are so many. We are not perfect.
Mike Allan MacDonald - Our Headliner!! I can't say how happy and proud I am to be working with this man. He is a comedic genius and a personal friend of mine. He also knows the side of mental health and addictions and his stories and jokes allow you to look into what might be "dark" for some, but he brings light and joy to all who listen.
Thanks so much for coming!! It's going to be a great show. And big thanks to Kelly-Lee Parry and Rickshaw Theatre for having us."
Proceeds will go the First United Church to support their work in the Downtown East Side.
