Laugh away bullying, hate at the No Hate Comedy Date
BATON ROUGE - Enjoy comedy with a serious message this weekend at the No Hate Comedy Date.
"We're promoting anti-bullying, anti-hate and unity in the community," explains producer Y'zell Williamson.
They've invited famous acts Lady Bunny and Coco Peru to come to Baton Rouge and perform at the Manship Theatre Saturday night. Organizers believe comedy is the perfect avenue to get their message across.
"You can pass a message anyway, but with comedy people tend to be more accepting and open to what you're trying to promote," producer Quentin Little told 2une In's John Pastorek.
"There's a way to spread a positive message across and what better way to do that than through laughter," Williamson says. "Someone once said a smile is a smile in any language, so it's a great way to get everyone together for one cause."
Performance for the No Hate Comedy Date at 5 and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Manship Theatre in downtown Baton Rouge. For ticket information visit the Manship Theatre website or visit their box office at 100 Lafayette St.
