AFTER SHOW MEET AND GREET
Please consider purchasing a Friends of Moldova Donation ticket and attend the after show Meet and Greet with Jimmy. This is a Humor for Humanity fundraiser for Ukrainian Refugee Relief.

Jimmy’s classmate from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government Maia Sandu is now the president of Moldova, which borders western Ukraine.

Any help you can provide to Friends of Moldova is desperately needed and greatly appreciated.
About the Show

 

Jimmy will take audiences on a hilarious and soul-searching journey from his Cambridge roots as an aspiring comic and street performer during the 1980s to the Tonight Show, 60 Minutes II, Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and a run for LT Governor of Massachusetts. Jimmy Tingle will speak to the challenges of the day with comedy, compassion and common sense while delivering a funny, passionate, and purpose-driven tour de force performance.

If laughter is the best medicine, then Jimmy Tingle is the Surgeon General of political humor. He will make you laugh; make you think and make you feel better, just what the doctor ordered.
