    Would absolutely love to win tickets because I know a comedy show is always a good time and I’d love to bring a friend who could use a good laugh!

    I’d like to WIN tickets because I’m a part-time student and part-time non-profit employee who doesn’t earn a comfortable wage. I’d like to go to the comedy shows because I love all kinds of humor (dark, childish, raunchy, unusual, popular). An example of my joy for laughing is that I curate jokes from reddit (about once per month) and send to my relatives and friends via text just to brighten their days. They may not find the jokes (such as “I took a video of my shoe yesterday…It was some pretty good footage”) as funny as I do, but I’ll bet these silly jokes make them crack a smile, and that’s worth it!

    I’m only half gay, but . . .

  21. Jen July 15, 2019 at 9:51 pm #
