AUBURN — The fourth installment of Comedy Fix, a stand-up comedy fundraising series, is set for Friday, Feb. 8, at the Auburn Fireside Inn. All net proceeds will benefit Advocates for Children in Lewiston.
Comedy Fix founder and stand-up comic Mark Turcotte will host local comedians Heather Neal, Mike Levinsky, Jake Jacobson, Travis Curran, Smith Galtney and Chris Choate.
“It’s a fun, affordable night out,” said Turcotte. “The crowds have been so supportive and we’re looking forward to raising money for another great cause.”
Through three shows, including two sellouts, Comedy Fix has raised $3,794 for Maine charities. Past beneficiaries include the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing, the Maine chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness and Good Shepherd Food Bank.
