Get gritty tonight in Tacoma for a good cause

By Kristin Kendle on June 9, 2012

Enjoy a rollicking comedy show? Like contributing to good things in your community? You can do both tonight at the Grit City Comedy's benefit show for the AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma. Go on. Watch some comedy and make a difference.

Headlining the show is Dean Oleson, Seattle-based comedian extraordinaire. With over 200 TV ads and 3,000 radio appearances behind him, Oleson has toured all over the world and has appeared on Comedy Central, A&E, and PBS. With all this funny-man experience, you can expect a night of giggles and snorts.

The AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma provides a place of refuge and shelter for people often in poor health on arrival. Since opening in 1990, this unique association has provided housing for over 100 individuals. Most of the people who use the facility return to living on their own after their health improves.

Grit City Comedy is located at 445 Tacoma Avenue South, inside Malarkey's Pool and Brew. The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available online through Brown Paper Tickets or from the venue. Call 253-961-4262 for more info.
