Enjoy night of comedy to help those in need by Irene Berman
March 30th, 2006
Radio's WMXJ Majic 102.7 FM has brought together THEY Improv and Laughing Gas to perform a benefit at the Miami Improv 8 p.m. Wednesday. The Miami Improv is located in the Shoppes of Mayfair, 3390 Mary St., No. 182, Coconut Grove.
Doors open at 7 p.m., after which there will be a silent auction until 8 when the top improvisational talent in South Florida hits the stage to benefit the long-standing Radio Lollipop program.
The Improv teams really have very big hearts and feelings when they hear about someone they could help, even if an adult, but especially for a child.
This is to be a night of unbridled comedy, top-notch entertainment. Tickets are $10 (plus tax); there is a two-drink minimum, and audience members must be 18 years old or older. All ticket money goes to the charity. You can help the children and have a great time, too.
Majic 102.7's DJ Joe Johnson will be doing a live part of the show. What more could you want for a great show and a wonderful evening?
Radio Lollipop believes in the healing power of play, having begun in 1978 at Queen Mary's Hospital for Children, in Surrey, England. Since the beginning, the program has expanded to Australia, New Zealand and of course, the United States. More information on Radio Lollipop is available on its website, www.radiolollipop.org, or at the Miami Children's Hospital website at www.mch.com/patient/radio_lollipop.htm.
The show may have some special guests who are not advertised.
"Our Comedy With a Cause program has successfully raised a lot of money for other charities while bringing top-notch performances to South Florida audiences," said THEY Improv director Todd Rice. "Radio Lollipop has provided humor and enjoyment for audiences of children at the hospital that truly need to be entertained the most."
Get tickets at the box office before the show, by calling the Improv at 305-441-8200 or online from the improv at www.miamiimprov.com. Make Wednesday a big night for children.
