Comedians of Hampton Roads are harnessing the power of laughter to help Virginia Beach heal in the face of tragedy. The Virginia Beach Funny Bone will host the #VBStrong Comedy Marathon. On Sunday, July 14, starting at noon, a diverse roster of comedians will perform for twelve straight hours to raise money for the Virginia Beach Tragedy Fund.
The comedy marathon will run twelve hours – from noon to midnight - one hour in memory of each victim. The event will include some big names, including Leonard Ouzts – star of the NBC sitcom Abby’s, as well as the area’s best local talent.
“An overwhelming amount of comedians came to me asking how they could help, and I think it’s important to do what we do best – make people laugh,” Said Rick Bruner, Manager of the Virginia Beach Funny Bone, “And we are going to make people laugh HARD. We’re going to use laughter to help heal the community. We’re going to celebrate the first responders. We’re going to celebrate the lives of the victims and support the survivors. It’s an 18-up show, but we will be tasteful and keep it clean.”
The event will feature stand-up, improv and sketch comedy from a variety of performers. The proceeds and any other money raised will go directly to the Virginia Beach Tragedy Fund at TowneBank.
“Sponsorship opportunities are still available for anyone else who would like to participate.”
