Funniest Night in America yields loads of laugh
It was just days following the Funniest Night in America show in Los Angeles that Navy veteran Rhonda reached out to the Laughs for the Troops’ staff via email. Ronni, as she goes by, shared that she had attended the show in LA with her son.
“I can’t thank you enough for putting on this show,” she said. “As a service-connected, disabled Veteran with PTSD, I can’t begin to express how much I appreciated that show. Sometimes I covered my mouth as I was laughing so hard, but I didn’t care. I needed that laugh.”
That’s just the kind of feedback that Laughs for the Troop’s founder, Thomas Brown, and his team want to hear. “It’s so humbling to receive feedback like Ronni’s,” said Brown. “Laughs for the Troops is completely committed to helping our Veterans by bringing laughs to help with their healing, and when we have someone share with us that we made a difference for them, there is no better motivator to keep doing what we’re doing.”
Ronni told Laughs for the Troops that she was still reminiscing about the sketches. “They were all unique and yet, at the end, they intertwined their humor on stage. It was priceless,” she said.
She went on to add, “Thanks from the bottom of my heart. There are times I find myself unable to leave my home, but I felt pushed to attend your show, and I’m so grateful — and blessed because of it!”
Laughs for the Troops would like to thank our family of comedians who joined Brown — Happy Cole, Tommy Drake, and Phil Palisoul, as well as special guest performer, Consuela Ivy. Also, special thanks to Jeff Campbell and his team at Lithographix, Inc. for their sponsorship and support of Laughs for the Troops.
