The situation in Japan is no laughing matter, but laughs could help.
The Lambda Mu chapter of Phi Theta Kappa will be hosting the improv comedy troop “Laughing Gass” at the Fine Arts Theater on Saturday, April 23. Money raised from ticket sales will go towards Japanese relief efforts.
Tickets are $4 for students or $5 for general admission. The show starts at 7 p.m.
Gregory Lane, vice president of leadership for the Lambda Mu chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, warns the event is for “mature audiences only.”
This is not the first time the comedy troop has been to campus to raise money for charity. They worked with Lambda Mu last February raising money for Haiti, and again in 2004 for Tsunami relief.
Phi Theta Kappa is one of several organizations on campus who have worked to assist the Japanese relief efforts. The Teamsters local 214 is holding a supply drive through April 23 and the Zombie Defense Council held a bake sale on March 23.
All proceeds go towards Japanese relief efforts. “Bring your own buddy!” says Lane.
