USO GI Comedy Boot Camp
Hollywood’s World Famous Laugh Factory in association with K-EARTH 101 is going to host a special show to raise money for the USO at its new Long Beach Location. The show will feature some of comedy’s biggest stars and be hosted by K-EARTH’s morning show host Gary Bryan.
The entire event will be filmed and then made available online at laughfactory.com to all the American service men and women around the world at no cost. In conjunction with this event, 5 members of the United States Armed Forces have been chosen to compete for the funniest service member.
These brave men and women will each perform 3 minutes of stand-up comedy and be judged by a jury of famous comedians, the Hollywood industry, and their fellow service members.
“American service men and women have faced life’s tough encounters on the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq and now they have a chance to face the tough encounters of being on stage,” says Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada. The winner of this competition will receive $1,000 in cash, $4,000 in gift certificates and an encore performance at the Hollywood Laugh Factory with their name on the marquee. The other participants will receive $1,000 in gift certificates.
The show will cost $20 a ticket for general admission and $30 a ticket for VIP admission; all of the admission fees will go to the USO to help fund their continuing efforts to bring laughter, smiles and entertainment to the troops. “This event will continue on a monthly basis until we bring all of the service people back home safely.” says K-EARTH personality Gary Bryan.
