Earlier this month, Fun Lovers Unite announced that stand-up comedian, actress, producer and writer Sarah Silverman and Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer were the latest performer and speaker to confirm their appearance at this common sense gun law event. They join comedians, humorists and musicians Jonathan Ames, Kurt Braunohler, Jeanne Darst, Dengue Fever, Frangela, Open Mike Eagle and Greg Johnson will also be performing at the event as well. This is the third Fun Lovers Unite event in recent years which raises awareness and action for common sense gun violence prevention efforts and the elected officials who stand up for the safety of our communities.
Fun Lovers Unite! An Evening of Music, Comedy, And Gun Sense will benefit Women Against Gun Violence who have been working to reduce gun violence for twenty-five years, offering free educational programs and helping to pass some of the nation’s toughest gun laws. This event also celebrates and is happening on the day gun-violence victim Asher Montandon would’ve turned 50 years old. Tickets can be purchased via the Regent Theater website. We will also be offering a limited amount of free tickets for gun violence survivors via the WAGV.org website.
Each performer on the bill is donating their time to this life-saving cause and is proud to stand with other fellow comedians, artists, and musicians in solidarity to raise awareness, action and funds for common sense gun violence prevention efforts and the elected officials who stand up for the safety of our communities.
ABOUT FUN LOVERS UNITE!
This is the third live music and comedy event dedicated to raising awareness and action for common-sense gun violence prevention efforts and the elected officials who stand up for the safety of our communities. The event is being produced by friends Joshua Mills in Los Angeles and Maccabee Montandon and Kim Russell in Brooklyn; they are all parents of young children who want to do more to prevent gun violence in America. Josh felt sickened and then galvanized following the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in 2012. Mac’s brother, Asher, was murdered with a gun during an attempted robbery in Los Angeles in 1992. This live event is happening on the day of Asher Montandon’s 50th birthday. Kim survived a shooting in 1999 that took the life of her friend, Philip Rau. She now works to prevent the scourge of gun violence in America through policy reform and education.
ABOUT WOMEN AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE
Women Against Gun Violence was founded in 1993 by feminist author Betty Friedan and Los Angeles Police Commissioner Ann Reiss Lane. For twenty-five years, WAGV has stood up to the gun lobby, fearless in the fight, and has helped to pass some of the nation’s toughest gun laws. In addition, WAGV offers free educational summits and workshops in California to educate the public about guns, teaching them how to prevent gun violence in their homes and communities.
