Comedy for a Cause: Comedians Provide Laughs and Raise Money for Spinal Cord Injuries

Posted By on Wed, Nov 20, 2013 at 1:20 PM


There's a reason the quote "laughter is the best medicine," is so well know -- while it isn't medicinal, laughter does provide the ability to heal the spirit. And tomorrow night, comedians will bridge the gap from laughter to helping those who are suffering from physical injuries.

A quarterly event, Comedy for a Spinal Cause, provides the public with comedic relief and raises funds for those who dealing with serious spinal injuries. The latest comedy event, happening tomorrow, will feature various standup comics, including Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh.

This particular show of Comedy for a Spinal Cause is raising funds for a young woman who was left a quadriplegic after a car crash in 2009. They're hoping to raise $60,000 in order to make a vehicle adaptive for her needs so that she'll be able to drive herself to her therapy appointments, and gain more independence.

If this sounds like the event for you,Comedy for a Cause is tomorrow night, Nov. 21, at the Barrel House (80 Tehama) at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
