THE 22 TOUR

September 11 @ 8:00 pm

22. The average number of soldiers that commit suicide DAILY. Imagine serving your country, survive the battlefield only to come home and die in crisis? This is unacceptable. This 22 location comedy tour, partnering with Stop Soldier Suicide, seeks to use the healing power of laughter to turn that statistic into 22 lives SAVED daily. Everyone gets to live.

Each show features Comedians who are Veterans or Active Duty military.

Come laugh with us and save lives.

STOP SOLDIER SUICIDE is the first national, veteran-founded-and-led 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on military suicide prevention. U.S. Army veterans Brian Kinsella, Nick Black, and Craig Gridelli co-founded Stop Soldier Suicide in 2010 amid the worst suicide crisis our military has ever seen. Each of them knew fellow soldiers and veterans who were struggling, and they were determined to create a solution. Today, the risk of suicide is 22% higher for veterans than for their peers who have not served. It’s simply unacceptable — especially given that suicide is 100% preventable. The problem is clear: The systems in place aren’t working. Getting help isn’t as easy as it should be — and trying to navigate a complicated maze of organizations and resources can be overwhelming when you’re in crisis. We’re here to change that.

This show is 21+ (18+ with a parent or legal guardian over the age of 30). All minors will be wrist-banded or stamped and no alcohol will be served at the table. All parties must have valid ID to enter the building. Please note, there is a 2 item minimum in the showroom.Tickets will be available for pick up at the box office prior to the show (they are generally available 1.5-2 hrs prior to showtime.)
