End of Life Choices New York is hosting our second annual fundraiser, the Zoom-based comedy show It Ain’t No Joke (But We Could All Use a Laugh) on June 4, 2021 at 8pm.
For those who attended last year, you know that It Ain’t No Joke (But We Could All Use a Laugh) is more than your typical zoom show. It’s a virtual comedy club experience! We will have a great lineup of 6 comics who are big on the New York comedy scene with television appearances on shows like America’s Got Talent and Comedy Central. Here’s a funny clip with one of our featured comedians, Usama Sidiqque, from America’s Got Talent. We have an entertaining MC and DJ duo to host the show and keep the festivities going and energizing the crowd, along with a fun games and prizes! Tickets are 25 dollars. Ticket holders will receive discounts from our Silver sponsors.
As we begin to emerge from the 2020 Covid pandemic, we turn to comedy as a way to both lift our spirits and to help shine some light on the issues surrounding end of life care. The funds from this show will help us launch The End of Life Equity Institute, an educational resource for end of life planning that will be the first of its kind. The goal of the Institute will be to address health disparities in access, care, and knowledge in New York.
Special thanks to our sponsors!
