Susan G. Komen Lubbock has announced their 8th annual Laugh For The Cure. John Crist will headline this year February 11th at the Civic Center.

I went to the show last year and had a blast. The comedians are truly funny and all of the extras involved make it a whole fun filled evening. There are silent auctions, live auctions, a raffle and 2 comedians taking the stage for a family night of comedy. Yes these comedians are PG so you can bring the kids. They may not get the jokes, but you can bring them.

Here is the official press release:
