Good fiend and super-colossal funny guy Kevin Kataoka sends this about a benefit tonight in LA. If I were there, I would be there.
Well, you know what I mean.
A good friend and fellow comic Erica Doering found out that she needs anemergency eye surgery - a vitrectomy - to prevent herself from going blind.It involves replacing her eye fluid with saline and placing a small belt andbuckle behind her eye. The operation has to be done on April 11th.Afterwards, the patient has to stare downwards at all times ... for twomonths. Stare at the floor for five seconds. Now imagine doing it for twomonths.Since I've known her in the last two years, I've seen her go through severalsurgeries and many eye doctor appointments. And like a lot of comics I know,she has no health insurance. This latest one is a very serious, emergencyoperation and the two months of recovery means she can't work during thattime. She only has one week left to raise the money for her surgery. So withthe help of a few others - including Amit Itelman and the Steve AllenTheatre - I helped put this show together so she can get this operation andsee again properly.Please help! Buy some tickets for this show. Spread the word. Tell yourfriends - especially if you don't live in LA, but have friends that do. Imean, c'mon, look at that lineup. It's going to be one of the best comedyshows of the year. And while you're at it, make a donation by clicking onthe link below. Every little bit helps.
