Kimmy the Klown's Comedy Benefit
Three acts, Comedy magic, Stand-up comedy, and Puppet Improv to help local artist Kimmy Sanders.
Belly laugh of an evening for a good cause. 100% of the ticket price will go to Kimmy Sanders' treatment (insurance does not cover) for spasmodic dysphonia and muscle tension dysphonia. You can help.
The evening will feature headlining comic Elicia Sanchez, crazy hilarious puppet improv by YOUR HAND GOES HERE, comedy magic show by Christopher Bange, and a song by Kimmy (she can sing but she can't speak).
There will be cool raffle prizes throughout the evening. There is a bar in the lobby so come early.
Doors at 7pm, show at 7:30pm.
Yes, we will be selling raffle tickets. Other than that we won't be hounding you for donations. We want you to have a great time!
Also, it's not a fancy dress up event. It's a knee slappin, jeans wearin, helluva good time.
Speaking of "helluva," this event if for grown up laughs, so it's best to get a sitter.
Tickets are only $15. Location is Unexpected Productions' Market Theater, in the Pike Place Market (by the gum wall). Tickets will be available to purchase through Unexpected Productions' Website: http://www.unexpectedproductions.org/
Spasmodic dysphonia and muscle tension dysphonia is a condition that causes in which the muscles that support Kimmi's vocal chords are constricted which restricts the air flow and causes her tongue to kind of kink up. So, it sounds like she is being strangled when she speaks.
She has no voice, at lease no voice that people understand, let alone kids. She is a clown and kids entertainer for heaven's sake. She has tried treatment after treatment. After so much searching she found a treatment that WORKS.
It is basically an orthotic for her mouth to reset her jaw and train her tongue and muscles. It's kind of like braces, needing adjusting along the way. These treatments are what we are raising money for.
Kimmy has been entertaining and teaching music and theatre to children and adults of all ages in the Seattle area and Western Washington since 1995. You can also find her performing on stage in the local theatres, singing at local jazz clubs with her trio and entertaining children and adults at a wide variety of social events!
