Drunk driving is a serious topic to think about day after day, so it’s important to have a good laugh once in a while. MADD Ottawa agrees. They’ve teamed up with IPromiseMom.com to present a night of comedy in Ottawa on June 22. The proceeds will go towards raising awareness of the dangers of driving impaired.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Canada is a well-known organization on the forefront of efforts to reduce the toll of death and injury from this lethal but preventable crime. IPromise encourages young people to make a promise not to drink and drive. They promote events that spread the anti-drunk driving message.
Five comedians have donated their time for the evening:
- Mike MacDonald – Well known stand-up comedian and film actor who has appeared on David Letterman and The Arsenio Hall Show.
- Greg Schroeder – One of the most vibrant, electric, and likeable comedians working in Canada.
- Itzy Kamil – A young comedian on the launch pad of his career.
- Matt Carter – Nominated for Best New Stand Up Comedian at the Canadian Comedy awards.
- Geoff McKay – Winner of the Canadian Comedy Awards “Funniest Person in the Ottawa Valley” contest and a fixture on the Canada comedy landscape.
Non-alcoholic beverages will be on hand before the show, courtesy of MADD Virgin Drinks and Shoppers Drug Mart.
If you’re in the vicinity of Ottawa and you’ve been affected by drunk driving, are concerned about road safety – or if you.just want a good laugh – be sure to head over to IPromise to Laugh Like MADD. You can order tickets here.
