Recently my wife told me that her childhood friend turned cousin (in a small enough town eventually everyone becomes cousins) has a 2 year old daughter that was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. She is about the cutest little kid and it breaks my heart to see her have to undergo aggressive chemotherapy. I have two kids and I can't imagine the emotional stress that the family must be going through.

I wanted to do something to help so I put together this fundraiser. I am already blown away and moved by how quickly some of the biggest names in the Seattle arts scene agreed to donate their time to put on a show for this family.

The show is going to be awesome! One of my childhood (and adulthood, lets be real) hero's JOHN KEISTER will be on the show. Seriously, the John Keister from ALMOST LIVE!

When I first saw David Crowe he made me laugh so hard I pee'd a little. He is one of the funniest comedians I have ever seen. He has brilliant material combined with wonderful physicality that has me in awe of just how damn good he is every time. When people ask me who they should look up I always give them Daves name first... Oh yeah, he's also on the show.

Sometimes you come to town and there is some kid who is pretty funny. Then you come back 6 months later and he is really funny. The next time you show up he is a force to recon with. Then you start hearing his name all over the country... "hey, you're from Seattle? Do you know Andrew Rivers? That dude is hilarious!" Andrew is an incredible comic and I am so happy to have him on the show.

And last but not least, Ayron Jones! To say Ayron is a just a guitar player is to say Stephen Hawkins knows some math. Ayron is one with the guitar. He can make it sing like few in the past. He is often compared to Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix and he definitely deserves the comparison. After a lineup as strong as the one we have he is the only person I know who could follow it, top it and close out the show.

Please come to the show. It will be one of the best shows to grace seattle this year and it couldn't be for a better cause.
