PRLog - Feb. 25, 2013 - Washington D.C. – Comedians Ed Blaze and Nema Williams will kick off a national tour with a charity show in DC this month to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of America.

Ed Blaze and Nema Williams will use the Feb. 23 show to launch their countrywide tour, visiting 15 cities throughout the summer beginning with the inaugural DC event, which will be taped for promotional purposes.

“Audiences who want to support a good cause and want to take part in a live taping should come to this show,” says Blaze, a Tanzanian-born comic who has toured nationally to deliver hilarious jokes and entertaining stories about his life in America. “We really want to bring awareness in each city we visit about a local charity that really helps the community. This is our way of helping out, and entertaining people along the way.”

The DC show is the first in a long line of stops, including Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, San Francisco, Sacramento and more before Williams and Blaze end up closing the summer tour with a stand-up show in Seattle.

“In each city we visit, we want to find a charity that’s the lifeblood of that community, one that really makes an impact, and spotlight that organization through our comedy event,” says Blaze, who has entertained crowds at the D.C. Improv, Howard University, Gotham Club in New York City and many others.

Blaze will donate a portion of the proceeds from each show to that chosen nonprofit charity.

“I’m really excited to participate in this tour, both for the sake of the art and to bring people’s attention to the awesome charitable work that’s happening in their own city,” Williams says.

Williams holds a slew of high-profile comedy credits, including appearances on Showtime’s LOL Comedy Festival, seven times on BET Comic View, Cedric the Entertainer’s “Starting Line Up,” Comic Grove” on Comedy Central, Sean “Puffy” Combs’ “Bay Boys of Comedy” on HBO and STARZ Martin Lawrence Presents First Amendment Standup, to name some.

The kick-off show takes place at the THEARC Theater, 1901 Mississippi Ave., S.E. Washington D.C. Start times are 8 and 10 p.m. Feb. 23. Tickets cost $20 with a portion of the proceeds going toward the Boys & Girls Club.

Audiences should note that because the event will be recorded for promotional and TV us, entering the venue and attending the event is taken as your consent to be photographed, filmed and otherwise recorded.
