The Laugh in Comedy Café in Fort Myers is hosting Flyin’ Brian’s Comedy Showcase at 7:30 p.m. May 23, with all proceeds benefiting the Harry Chapin Food Bank.  Tickets are $20 each, and attendees are asked to bring a nonperishable food item to donate at the door.

Nancy Francis, a local comedian and a Harry Chapin Food Bank volunteer, came up with the idea, said John Kuhn, food bank special events manager.

“Nancy approached us about putting together a benefit event and then she did all of the legwork and got Brian Carrion from Laugh In Comedy Café to donate the venue.  Buy a ticket, come see great comedy and help fight hunger—it’ll be a wonderful night for a great cause”

Here are the fun facts:

  • Show emcee: Flyin’Brian from The Freakshow on 105.5 The Beat.
  • Headliner: B.J. Odom
