Howie Mandel & Jeff Dunham Bring Comedy To Thousand Oaks
Moved by the devastating wildfires that crippled the community surrounding Thousand Oaks and the senseless loss of life at the Borderline Bar and Grill, Howie Mandel and Jeff Dunham decided to give back in a BIG WAY. On Saturday, December 22nd at 8pm they are joining forces for an evening of comedy and song. Tickets will go on sale Nov. 30 at noon.
"With everything I have done in my career standup comedy has always been my favorite and if I could show up with my friends and do what I love to do and hopefully be a small part of helping others- that's a win win" says Mandel
Mandel's versatile career has encompassed virtually all aspects of the entertainment spectrum, including television, film and stage. He currently serves as a judge on NBC's hit summer talent competition series, America's Got Talent, which just wrapped its 13th season. AGT Champions will be out January 2019. Mandel is also the host of Deal or No Deal which is back on CNBC this year.
Ventriloquist Dunham is a global comedy superstar and one of the world's most inventive entertainers. A Guinness World Record holder for "Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour," Dunham has built an entertainment empire over years of non-stop touring and innovation. He has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world leading to record-breaking viewership with his comedy specials on Comedy Central, NBC and Netflix.
All the proceeds from this one night only event at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza will go to the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) to benefit survivors of the Borderline shooting and those impacted by the Woolsey Fire.
