Comedy with a Purpose

Bridge Street

The Funny Bone is hosting ‘Comedy with a Purpose’ Wednesday night and Comedian PJ Walsh is set to take the stage. As a veteran himself, PJ is an advocate for veterans’ rights both on and off stage.

PJ is also involved in the Armed Services Arts Partnership, which is an organization created by Sam Pressler after losing a family member to suicide. As part of Wednesday’s comedy show, PJ will feature three comedians who have been part of the program’s comedy boot camp.

Comedy boot camps are six week training programs open to active duty, military family members and veterans. Walsh works with new comedians as a way to help them down the road because of all the people who were great to him.

Hartford, Syracuse, and Virginia Beach were three locations that have been good to Walsh so he brought the military show to these places. The military comedians involved in his show, have only been performing for one year.

PJ Walsh will be headlining at the Funny Bone Wednesday May 3rd at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20 or $15 for military personnel and you must be 21 to attend the show.
