Proceeds from the event will benefit the Phi Theta Kappa New Member Scholarship Campaign. The campaign is designed to help pay the induction fees for eligible students who are currently incarcerated. The Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society recently announced that it will allow currently incarcerated students to join the organization.

RVCC’s chapter, through activism and research, played a large part in convincing the international honor society to modify its bylaws in order to offer membership to all eligible students.

The show will contain adult language, so no one under the age of 16 should attend without a parent or guardian. Tickets for the comedy fundraiser, at $10 each, may be purchased online at
