Chicago-based standup Candy Lawrence is always a treat to watch onstage, she's bizarre, charming, and unpredictable. Unfortunately, her father was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer just about a year ago, and has been given between six months to a year to live. Candy has organized an online fundraiser and benefit show to raise funds to help combat her father's medical bills, which have surpassed $300,000.
Please visit the homepage for her fundraiser and give generously to support one of the finest performers in Chicago during her family's time of need.
Laughs for Lawrence, the aforementioned benefit show, is on Friday, July 26th at the Lincoln Lodge and features appearances from Adam Burke, Natalie Jose, Ted Tremper, The Puterbaugh Sisters, and more, as well as a series of raffles, featuring prizes like tickets to a taping of Saturday Night Live and a voucher good to cover the costs of an eight week class at Second City. Tickets are between $10 and $25 and are on sale now.
