The Humor is Back!

Posted on February 20, 2015 in CEO Updates

Dear Friends –

For the 20th anniversary of the Roast we have invited comedian¬†Alonzo Bodden, who made the entire country laugh as he took the crown on Season 3 of Last Comic Standing and who continues to entertain national audiences on “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!”¬†Instead of the occasionally hilarious political mudslinging of the past, for our 20th anniversary, Alonzo will be roasting all of us. Here’s a short teaser clip: (Rated PG-13: Watch Here!)

He will be joined by Master of Ceremonies Courtenay Hameister, whose wit and charm can be seen on stage at Portland’s very own LiveWire! Radio, and “the hottest funk & soul band in the Pacific Northwest,” Soul Vaccination.

On the heels of the release of Chapter 02, and as we move on to Chapter 03 in this tough and necessary shared work, I hope you can come together and support our mission and enjoy some laughter. “Those who laugh together stay together.”

Dan Ryan
