I wanted to thank everyone who attended our first Comedy for Cops Comedy Show in Warwick last Friday, especially the talent, which included Doreen Collins, Ace Aceto, Scott Higgins, Mike Murray, John Perrotta, Anthony Brooks and the Prince of Mystery. We had a blast. Thanks also to the Knights of Columbus for the great deal on the hall and to Dana Nathanson for putting (and keeping) it all together.
We’ll be back in a new location in 2017. If you’re interested in having a FREE Comedy for Cops show in your city, call Dana Nathanson at 401-261-3120
The Knights of Columbus Hall 475 Sandy Lane, Warwick at 8pm, Friday, December 9, 2016 is where you want to be for the first ever Comedy for Cops show, produced by the RI Comedy Hall of Fame.
Admission is FREE. (And no, you don’t have to be a police officer to attend.)
The show features top RI Comedy Hall of Fame members, John Perrotta, Ace Aceto and Mike Murray, along with Fall River’s own, Anthony “The Stuttering Comic” Brooks and amazing comedy magic from The Prince of Mystery.
The evening will be hosted by the only female member of the RI Comedy Hall of Fame, Doreen Collins.
The performers are giving up their paychecks on this very busy holiday night to honor the men and women who place their lives on the line for us every day.
WE NEED YOUR RESERVATION to save you a seat. You can do that 1 of 2 ways.
1.) Call Dana at 401-261-3120 with the number of reservations you require.
Whatever you have planned for Friday, December 9, 2016 at 8pm, cancel it right now and make new plans to join the RI Comedy Hall of Fame and the area’s top comedians at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 475 Sandy Lane, Warwick, RI for our FREEComedy for Cops show.
It’s no secret our nation’s police officers have had a rough past couple of years and the RI Comedy Hall of Fame wants them, (their friends, families and supporters) to enjoy a free evening out and enjoy a professional comedy show. It’s our way of saying, “thanks” for all they do.

Tickets for the RI Comedy Hall of Fame Roast of Bill Simas and Mike Murray (Funny 4 Funds) are now on sale on the Odeum Theatre website for $20 each. THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT! We urge you to buy your tickets now for this spectacular event on Sunday, November, 6, 2016 at 5pm.
In October 2014, the comedy fundraising company, Funny 4 Funds began kicking ass and raising money and now having produced and performed in almost 300 shows are showing zero signs of slowing down anytime soon. If you live in RI, MA., or CT., you have no doubt heard of Funny 4 Funds. You’ve probably even been to one of their comedy fundraisers.
Owners, Mike Murray of Johnston and Bill Simas of Warwick started the company with the hopes of helping others and producing 1 or 2 comedy fundraising shows per month. These days, two shows in 7 days is a slow week.
Since their start, Funny 4 Funds has helped raised 1.3 million dollars for various causes, including sports teams, school functions, civic groups, individuals requiring money for medical bills, etc. It doesn’t matter what you’re trying to raise money for. Follow Mike and Bill’s instructions and you’re going to meet, (or exceed) your goal amount. It’s that simple.
Passion is what drives the owners of Funny 4 Funds. And now it’s driving them straight into the RI Comedy Hall of Fame.
The RI Comedy Hall of Fame Takes Notice
“The RI Comedy Hall of Fame’s mission statement is to recognize those who have made significant contributions to the Ocean State,” says HOF founder, Joe Hebert. “Usually these contributions take years and years to be recognized, but Funny 4 Funds is different. It’s hard to ignore what Mike and Bill have done in an extremely short amount of time. Comedy fundraising is not a new concept. These guys have just figured out a way to package it and make it work. and Funny 4 Funds is blowing up everywhere. As of July, 2016, the company has helped raise $1.3 million dollars. I’ve been in the comedy business 30 years and I’ve never seen anything like it. Everyone from the individual or group who needs the money, to the local comedy talent who perform in their shows, to the venues where the events are held, benefit from Funny 4 Funds. How can I not recognize and honor them with a spot in the Hall of Fame?”
The Comedy Roast of Bill Simas and Mike Murray
The Comedy Roast of Funny 4 Funds takes place Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 5pm at the Greenwich Odeum, 59 Main St., East Greenwich, RI.
