The Atlanta Pride Committee is bent on making you laugh. At least once a week.
They’ve struck a new partnership with Laughing Skull Lounge that should both make you laugh and raise money for the committee, which not only organizes the Atlanta Pride Festival this fall but a host of events in late June.
Here’s how it works: Buy tickets to the 8 p.m. or 10 p.m. shows at Laughing Skull each Thursday and use “pride” as the promotional code when you pay online (or mention it at the venue). Then, Laughing Skull will donate $5 to Atlanta Pride. Pretty easy, huh?
The promotion begins this week and continues for the near future. Additionally, Laughing Skull is interested in pulling together a night of LGBT comics sometime soon, too.
“We are excited about this new community partnership with Laughing Skull,” Festival Director J. Sheffield said. “These comedy nights certainly add a bit of flavor to the weekly gay calendar and are a great example of local business people finding a way to support Pride.”
British comedians Andrew Stanley (photo) and Hattie Hayridge (photo) are on tap for Thursday.
Hayridge is a popular award-winning stand-up comic who performs live all over Britain and around the world, including at both the prestigious Montreal and Sydney Comedy Festivals. Stanley is a sharp, witty Dubliner who has rapidly climbed the comedy ladder in his homeland to cement his status as one of the most reliable and regular acts on the Irish circuit.
