Healthy Heritage Comedy and Resource Fair
Healthy Heritage is excited to announce the return of “Laughing for the Health of It”, a Comedy Show and Mental Health Resource Fair, in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, May 21st, at 4:00 PM, at the Ontario Improv. The show will feature the hilarious comedians Fritz Coleman, Richard Weiss, Sean Grant, and Donna Maine who is also the host.
“Laughing for the Health of It” is an event open to the public 18 years or older, and it promises to be a night full of laughter and camaraderie. In addition to an hour-long, hilariously clean comedy show, attendees will have the opportunity to network with the community, enjoy delicious food and drinks, talk to mental health professionals, and gather resources from over 20 participating vendors who are passionate about helping Healthy Heritage end the stigma of mental health in the community.
Donna Maine, the host of the show, is an LA-based comedian whose comedic sets revolve around relatable topics on middle-aged dating and the comical ironies of parenthood. Richard Weiss, a long-time recovered addict, has toured the country performing at major comedy venues along with doing “recovery comedy” at 12-step conventions nationwide. Sean Grant is a rising star in the comedy scene and was recognized as the Funniest College Kid in America by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Fritz Coleman, legendary and retired NBC weathercaster for 39 years, and hilarious comedian who has made numerous appearances on the “Tonight Show” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
