We’re rolling out the red carpet, and you are invited! Join Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon for a fabulous night of comedy, libations, and defending potential. Presented by Lonza, our 22nd annual Comedy For Kids’ Sake is returning to the Tower Theatre November 15th, 2019, and promises to be the best yet, hosted by the effervescent Tracee Tuesday, voted best local radio personality in 2018, and featuring two side-splitting comedians.
The evening includes a huge silent auction and an exciting live auction that gets the crowd competing over one-of-a-kind items. Favorites are the “showstopper:” thousands of dollars in beer, wine, and spirits, two tickets to anywhere Alaska Air flies, and the “food truck frenzy:” with culinary experiences all around Central Oregon. Getaways, like a large vacation rental on the Oregon Coast or a stay in a private cabin located on a secluded ¾-mile stretch of the best fly fishing water on the Lower Deschutes will also create a stir.
All proceeds from Bend’s premier red carpet event, goes towards matching Central Oregon youth with caring adult mentors, also known as, DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL. Children benefit from a caring adult inspiring their potential. Studies show youth with mentors do better in school and reach higher levels of education than those without, and there are hundreds of kids from Madras to La Pine who need mentors. Join us for a spectacular event, become a Defender of Potential, and change a life for the better, forever.
About the entertainment:
Winner of this year’s Helium’s Comedy Club’s annual Portland’s Funniest Person Contest, Adam Pasi, has been called the city’s “hot, upcoming local talent.” He was also winner of Willamette Week’s Funniest Five Competition in 2016. This competition brings the top five new Portland comics, who have been chosen by over 100 of their peers, head-to-head for the title. Half Samoan, Adam grew up a military brat moving all over the world. His humor created easy friendships as a kid, and he began his comedy career in 2012.
Tyler Boeh is professionally funny. He has won or been a finalist in several well-known comedy competitions from San Francisco to Boston, and performed in dozens of major cities in between. With a background in improv and a love for writing, Tyler’s act is fast paced with a shotgun delivery. His comedy can be described as high-energy, intelligent, and silly. Whether he is on the small stage of an intimate comedy club or performing at a theater, Tyler is comfortable, confident, and hilarious. He uses his quick wit and celebrated talent of “beatboxing” to bring audiences to hysterical heights.
