The show will go on, despite or perhaps because of the death of Danville resident Stacey Hartmann to ovarian cancer at the age of 47 in January. She and comedian Charleen Earley started an annual Comedy Night several years ago to let people laugh while raising funds for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.
Earley will host the show at 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 15, in the Dean Lesher Theatre in Walnut Creek. Afterward the audience can mingle with the comics at a lounge nearby; details will be given at the show.
Tickets are $30 by calling 943-SHOW (943-7469). To learn more, visit www.comedybenefit.org.
