Albany to giggle for the cause

April 7, 2014 by  

For those who like supporting causes but want to have a laugh while doing it, the Addictions Care Center of Albany has the ideal event.

Residents of the city, and neighboring Schenectady, are invited to The Comedy Works later this week for a night of stand-up comedy. The proceeds will go to support the Addictions Care Center and its mission of helping people overcome addictions and get their lives back.

The headliner for the event is RC Smith, who has made his career as a warm-up act for a variety of famous shows. Currently he is working on ‘The Chew’ but he has worked on many other shows, such as ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘Ricki Lake’. He worked as the warm-up man on the Rachel Ray Show for six years, carrying out a role that requires strong comedic skills to pull the audience into the show right away and get laughs immediately.

Promoters may reach out to print companies for advertising purposes. Venues like The Comedy Works often have their audience members sign mailing lists to be notified of upcoming shows. The venue managers might want printed postcards or flyers that they can mail to people on their list in the hope of enticing them to come out for the show.

Admission is $25, though audience members can pre-order tickets for $20. The show begins at 6:30 pm on April 10.
