'Laugh for Justice' at Temple UMC on May 7!

April 14, 2011

Nationally-acclaimed comedian Jimmy Tingle will appear at Temple United Methodist Church in San Francisco on Saturday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m., in a special benefit performance for the Bay Area Immigration Task Force.

Tingle (who could also be called Jimmy Tickle, or Jimmy Giggle, or Jimmy Makes-Me-Laugh-So-Hard-It-Hurts!) has donated his talents to support the BAIT immigration law clinic, which is raising funds to hire an immigration law attorney.
The clinic provides free (sliding scale) professional legal services to immigrants. In its first year of operation it utilized the services of a visiting attorney provided through a Justice for Our Neighbors grant.
Jimmy Tingle is a Boston native who was "active and faithful" in a New York City UMC where Temple pastor, the Rev. Schuyler Rhodes, once served. He has appeared on (to name a few) the Tonight Show, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, 60 Minutes II (as a weekly humorist/commentator), and American Comedy Awards, in addition to starring in his own special on HBO.
Tickets are just $25 in advance or $30 at the door.
You may purchase advance tickets on line here, or buy at the church. (Click on "Registrations" on the Home Page or go to http://cnumc.org/register and scroll down to "Order (Resources, Tickets) Here."
Don't miss this opportunity to laugh yourself silly while doing good!
