Stand-up comics and homeless dogs have way more in common than you might imagine.
First off, they roam to different places, making temporary connections before being shipped off for a gig someplace else.
Second, they're inarguably damaged and desperate for love.
So, it makes sense that for years, people who tell jokes for a living have found themselves irresistibly drawn to performing on behalf of their four-legged counterparts at Funny For Fido: Comics Stand Up For Homeless Animals, produced by comedian and animal activist Justin Silver.
Funny For Fido has included comedy legends Amy Schumer, Colin Quinn, Jim Gaffigan, Judah Friedlander and Patrice O'Neal on its past lineups, and the next show is right around the corner, scheduled for February 22 at The Stand Comedy Club and Restaurant in New York.
If there is one benefit to the chaos this country is currently going through, it's that people are finding themselves more willing to give to charitable organizations.
And most of us can really use a good laugh.
So, if you're looking for a way to give to animal welfare organizations that will heal both your heart and someone else's, this is a solid way to do it.
While there's no guarantee Schumer will be there this time, you can rest assured the lineup will be stacked with comics who are really, really good.
According to the Funny For Fido website,
Not only do the profits go to the pups, but the pups also get to come to the show for some well-deserved stage time. So, you may even find your canine soulmate.
Here are just a few of the hundreds of pups that Funny For Fido has saved.
Be prepared to happy-cry your eyes out...
