The Niagara Falls Comedy Fest is pleased to announce the 8th annual Komedy for Kidneys Rodney Pentland Memorial Benefit Show on Thursday, March 5th, 2015.
This popular Niagara Falls event will take place at the Greg Frewin Theatre, and will feature over two hours of comedians performing. Proceeds made from Komedy for Kidneys will benefit the OneFoundation for Niagara Health System in support of Dialysis Care in Niagara.
The charity event was renamed in memory of comedian Rodney Pentland, who passed away in 2009 from complications related to kidney disease. Pentland grew up in Niagara Falls and performed at the very first Komedy for Kidneys show. Throughout his long battle with the disease, Rodney continued to perform and make people laugh. Making people laugh was his first priority, so the Komedy for Kidneys Rodney Pentland Memorial Benefit Show will do just that.
He was best known for his impressions of Robert DeNiro, Bill Cosby, and Marlon Brando.
Komedy for Kidneys has raised over $30,000 so far, all in support of the Niagara Falls Dialysis Centre. The Niagara Falls Comedy Fest hopes to bring that number to $50,000 in 2015!
Headlining this year is Canadian Comedy Legend, Mr. Mike MacDonald. He has worked as a stand-up comedian for over three successful decades across stages throughout North America. He has appeared on “Late Night with David Letterman”, “The Arsenio Hall Show” and “Just For Laughs”. He was nominated for Gemini Awards, and has starred in three specials for the CBC in Canada and for Showtime in the US.
