Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops to air Friday June 12th

RON WHITE’S 5th ANNUAL SALUTE THE TROOPS COMEDY SPECIAL PREMIERS FRIDAY, JUNE 12 AT 9:30 PM, ET/PT on CMT

From a CMT press release….

“America’s favorite scotch-drinking funnyman Ron White is ready to salute the troops with a night of comedy on CMT when his fifth-annual “Comedy Salute to the Troops 2015,” premieres Friday, June 12 at 9:30pm, ET/PT. Taped earlier this year at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the 90-minute special features White and fellow comedians Shane Torres, Gene Pompa, Rocky LaPorte, Kathleen Madigan and Finesse Mitchell, as they raise funds for the Armed Forces Foundation, create awareness for PTSD, and give back to the men and women who have served their country.

No topic is off limits in this all-new special as White and his friends tackle a variety of subjects, ranging from the city of Las Vegas, to seatbelts, to diet and exercise, and even how to deal with people who have bad breath. White finales what he deems his “favorite night of the year” by discussing the underrated fear of geese, the laziness of his French bulldogs and his personal thoughts on standard police sobriety tests.”

Benefit for the Child Saving Institute great success

From Omaha.com

Cabaret 2015, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Madigan World,” attracted 600 to Embassy Suites La Vista for an evening of humor with Kathleen Madigan, a finalist and judge on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”

The May 9 event was a benefit for the Child Saving Institute.

During the event, longtime CSI volunteer Sue Nemer-Haddix reminded guests that many older children need adoptive homes. She also mentioned that although the following day was Mother’s Day, many such children have no one to call “Mom.”

Honorary chairmen for the event were Nemer-Haddix and George Haddix. General chairmen were Laura and Dick Worick, with co-chairmen Lucy and Scott Newberry.

“It’s a Mad, Mad, Madigan World” raised nearly $300,000. Proceeds will support the institute’s programs and services, including foster care, adoption, early childhood education, pregnancy counseling, parenting classes and therapy.

Kathleen in Kevin Pollak’s new move Misery Loves Company

Kathleen makes an appearance among a bevy of comics in Kevin Pollak’s new film Misery Loves Company. Veteran actor and comic Kevin Pollak explores the idea that laughter has to come from a place of deep suffering in interviews with more than 60 comics in order to get to the core of what makes them tick. At what point did they realize they wanted to be funny for a living, and what is it that keeps them coming back to the spotlight’s harsh glare?

The film debuts in select theatres April 24th and will be featured at the TriBeCa FilmFest April 22nd. It is also available for download on iTunes and Amazon Instant Video
