Acting Out – For the Health of It 

benefiting Breast Cancer Action

Wednesday, May 22, 2013
7:00 – 9:00 PM
(doors open at 6:45 show starts promptly at 7:15

A fun and provocative medley of performances from talented female comedians, authors and musicians who all share your commitment to women’s health.

Come out to support BCAction and enjoy the comedy musings of Eloisa Bravo and Nurse Allison Whittaker (Vital Signs); readings by author Melanie Gideon (The Slippery Year); the bluegrass sounds of Melody Walker; and more. We have a great line-up of funny, fearless, and bold performers all of whom are generously donating their time and talent.

We’re thrilled to have René Hicks emceeing the evening – René is a longtime BCAction supporter and an award-winning comedian who was diagnosed with lung cancer, due to her exposure to secondhand smoke in comedy venues. As a comedian, she always turned her comedy act into comedy activism. Now as a speaker, she applies laughter advocacy–turning “ha-ha” moments into “a-ha” moments.

Group ticket sales with priority seating are available. Contact Marie Bautista at (415) 243-9301 x15 or for details.
