Family Friendly Fundraiser - Comedian Devin Henderson

Family Friendly Fundraiser - Comedian Devin Henderson

Laughter is the best medicine! Bring the whole family to this fundraiser for the Regional Health Care Clinic of Johnson County, featuring Comedian Devin Henderson. Not sure if you've heard of Devin Henderson? Check out his bio:

Devin Henderson has been making audiences laugh for over a dozen years. Recently, he placed third out of forty-plus people in Kansas City's annual "Clash of the Comics" at the Kansas City Improv Comedy Club. Devin is a father of 5 and a pain in the neck to the world's most beautiful bride. He spends a lot of time braiding Barbie's hair and drawing unicorns on the Etch-a-Sketch, and sometimes he also plays with his kids. Devin's comedy is clean with no naughty words, and is based off his observations as a family man, entrepreneur, and amateur ukulele artist. He wrote this bio himself, which is challenging and actually kind of weird.

Tickets are $15 - all proceeds benefit RHCCJC. Social hour & cash bar 6:30pm-7:30pm, Showtime 7:30pm. Purchase tickets at Johnson County Community Health, from Liz Kostas (660-864-9613), or at the door.
