Cleveland Comedians to Stand-Up for Pro-Choice Ohio


1 comment
Bombastic, outspoken and hilarious, Cleveland comedians aren't afraid to share what's on their minds. This month, they'll gather in hopes to dish out laughs and opinions for change, or rather, choice. 

NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio is hosting Comedy for Choice Oct. 16 at the Nash to raise awareness and bring the funny about reproductive rights in Ohio. Cleveland's own Mike Polk Jr., Lauren Bencaz and Dustin Meadows will be performing stand-up routines starting at 7 p.m.

Of the comedians, Polk, of "Cleveland Tourism Video" fame, has already made his stance on reproductive freedom known with his 2013 sketch "How the New Ohio Budget Affects Your Vagina."

Slavic Village's vintage bowling alley and performance venue the Nash is ushering in anyone over 21 to the show. Tickets are $25. For more info, head on over to NARAL's site
