Laugh it up with Auggie Smith to benefit the Gut Check Foundation.
If you missed last night's Arizona's Funniest Comedian competition at Laff's Comedy Caffe, you still have a chance to get some solid laughs in this weekend and this time it's all for a good cause. On Sunday, Auggie Smith will be joined by six local comedians at Borderland's Brewing Company for a comedy event to finish off Arizona Beer Week.
The full line-up puts LA's Smith as the headliner with Tucson's Pauly Casillas. Opening up for the two are Ryan Malchow, Alex Kack, Andrew Horneman, Ben Dietzel and Josiah Osego.
Ryan Malchow, who helped organize the benefit show, said his reasons for doing so were pretty simple.
"I just wanted to bring a great act to Tucson to reward people for giving to a good cause," he says.
The night's proceeds go to the Gut Check Foundation, which is a nonprofit that that promotes education and research into the prevention and treatment of Clostridium septicum infections—an infection that can lead to life threatening damage of the GI.
You can catch Smith and more on Sunday, Feb. 22 starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and available now through the Borderlands website.
