⚙ COMEDIANS CARE: Meal Service and Standup Set at LA Mission
WHAT: Perform comedy for and serve a meal to people experiencing homelessness at L.A. Mission.
ABOUT L.A. MISSION: L.A. Mission strives to be a world leader among Mission that provide for the poor, restore the addicted, and eliminate homelessness. They see each individual as a spiritual person of worth and dignity and worthy of assistance in their journey. https://losangelesmission.org/
VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: You or your improv group will do a 5 minute stand-up or improv set as L.A. Mission's monthly awards for adults who have graduated from their classes. At 4:30 you'll start the night off by serving them dinner, giving you a chance to meet and interact with the people you'll later be entertaining. This makes the night more than just another gig. Afterward, the awards show and comedy sets start. **NOTE: Comedy sets must be CLEAN. L.A. Mission is a faith organization and asks you to refrain from any sort of blue comedy, including bits with cursing, sex, drugs. You will be vetted prior to the show to ensure your material respects this rule. **
IMPACT: You'll be putting smiles on the faces of those who can really use it. They've worked hard to overcome some drastic difficulties and we want to reward them with some laughter on an important day in their lives.
REQUIREMENTS: Must be 21+
SPECIAL NOTES: Please refrain from taking photos of the residents. They may not want people to know they're experiencing homelessness. And if they want to talk to you, please provide a listening ear rather than giving them advice.
ACCESSIBILITY: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodation to participate in this project please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
