The event features the comedic talents of Cindy Shields, Helen Hong, Gayla Johnson, Katie Love and Etta Mae Mumphries. This one-night only show promises an evening of clean comedy from some of today’s funniest headliners.

Cindy Shields, the emcee for the night and also a performer says, “I support the arts because it is not only soul-enriching but sometimes an instrument of healing, both for the artist and audience. I teach theatre arts to kids and have watched them blossom right before my eyes! I’m so grateful for the Art Attack Foundation and all it does to put the arts into the hands of those who may not otherwise get that opportunity. Art expresses what we can’t always say – sometimes it speaks for all of us – such a GIFT!”
