A unique Wounded Warrior Benefit involving comedy
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – It is said that laughter is often the best medicine.
that was on display Thursday at Comedy Off Broadway in Lexington.
Josh Sardam served 16 years and wanted to give back in some way.
He says there is only one thing he wants veterans to take away from this event, “Good laughter. You know I’ve got a lot of military set that I do up there where I talk about the military and make fun of it and there’s a lot to make fun of. So I’m hoping that they get good laughter and leave out of here with a good experience.”
All of the money raised will go to the wounded warrior project, which is a charity that offers programs and services for wounded veterans.
Sardam says he sat down at a bar with three of his comedian friends one night and they all wanted to help the cause.
“What’s amazing about these guys is that none of them want any pay” Sardam said. “So everything that they would normally get for a show like this they’re all giving it to wounded warriors.”
Sardam has done events like this in the past and he hopes to continue helping the wounded warrior project, one joke at a time.
