Sept 5: Comedy Helps Harvey Benefit

The Forrest Four-Cast: September 3, 2017

Tickets range from $75 to $1000. One hundred percent of ALL proceeds from this September 5 show (including ticket, concession and merchandise sales) will directly benefit the American Red Cross to assist people affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

Also attend the post-benefit part at the Townsend (718 Congress Ave; just across the street from the Paramount) with live performances by Suzanna Choffel, Monte Montgomery, Van Wilks and others.

Unrelated to the “Comedy Helps” event, SXSW has created this Red Cross donation portal for Harvey relief. We urge you to help those in Texas who have been most impacted by this devastating hurricane.
