Third Fundraiser

On September 22, 2013, get ready, set, and go to a funny place you’ve never been before. The third annual Stand Up to Stop Violence is a comedy fundraiser benefiting Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse.

Comedian Suzie Sexton is bringing the show to the Fox Theatre for one stellar night of comedy. Suzie and friends David Fitzsimmons, (voted “Best Entertainer”, Tucson Lifestyle Magazine), Gary Hood, (a comedy legend who has appeared at LAFFS Comedy Caffe, on Showtime and Comedy Central), Dina Kucera, (comedienne and author of the bestseller “Everything I Never Wanted to Be”), Butch Lord, (a 20 year veteran of standup whose “edgy look is softened by his carefree and light hearted view of himself and the world around him”), Elliot Glicksman, (who has opened for Jerry Seinfeld, Phyllis Diller and Ricky Nelson), and Suzie Sexton, (she has been called Tucson’s own version of Joan Rivers).

Stand up tour de force Vanessa Hollingshead, from New York City, will headline the show. Vanessa studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatrical Institute. She has her own Comedy Central Presents, she was one of the first comics to go to the Middle East when the war started, and she has critical acclaim for her one woman show, “Flashback.” This will be a special night of surprises and hilarity you won’t want to miss, so get your tickets before they are gone!

This year there will be a raffle of exciting prizes, including restaurants, golf and spa prizes, for only $10 a ticket. The show starts at 7:00 p.m., with a VIP reception/meet and greet before the show at 6:00. There will also be an after party at The Playground following the show.

Tickets are $50 for VIP seats, $25, and $15 ($10 for students with ID at Box Office only. Tickets are available at The Fox Theatre, 17 W. Congress,, and 547-3040. Contact Suzie to be a valued sponsor of Stand Up to Stop Violence by sending an email to:
