“Stand Up Against HATE!” Comedy Event to Benefit Local Community Organizations Features Comedians Joe Carney, Rich McDonald and More

GARWOOD, NJ -- Comedians Joe Carney and Rich McDonald will host Stand Up Against HATE for a day-long comedy event being held on Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018, at Crossroads (78 North Ave., Garwood).

The day will include laughter, reflection and community healing in an effort to bring all people together to celebrate our differences, accept each and everyone one of us for who we are, and bridge the divide between us all. All proceeds will be given to projects such as:

  • Garden State Equality
  • Real Beauty Uncovered
  • Cranford Jaycees

The day will feature comedians of all ages, lifestyles and backgrounds, with only one feature in common: The desire to bring people together. 

The event will also showcase the winners of the essay contest from Garwood Middle School, reading their award winning essays: “How I would make the world a better place.”  The event is the brainchild of NJ-based comedy duo McDonald and Carney, who have appeared on national TV such as on ABC’s Live with Regis and Kelly, MTV, TruTV, HGTV. They have been selected to audition for America’s Got Talent and perform consistently in New York City, Atlantic City, and elsewhere along the east coast.

The day will begin with a FAMILY COMEDY act from 2:00 to 4:00 pm that will include performers from age 12 to age 85. Bring the kids age 10 and up for this event to share in the laughter. Performers will include the Teen Improv Troupe Sparks of Insanity, Natty Bumpercar and more!

The day continues with laughter for adults 21 and over with the TRI-STATE STAND-UP SHOWCASE from 5:00-7:00 p.m. that will feature the best comedians from New Jersey, New York City and Philadelphia with a wide array of hilarious performers who are all dedicating their time to this amazing cause!

McDonald and Carney will end the day of comedy against hate with a continued adult laughter from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.

A $20 donation allows access to the event all day. ALL PROCEEDS shall go towards the charities and organizations listed above. Tickets can be purchased at McDonaldandCarney.com or here. Reservations can also be made by contacting the Crossroads at 908-232-5666.
