Access Tucson to celebrate free speech with humor
Local comedic talents lend hand for benefit
The First Amendment will be the star of the show Wednesday when Access Tucson celebrates free speech with comedy featuring two hometown talents.
The media nonprofit is inviting the public to 'eat, drink and speak freely" from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Tucson Museum of Art.
The Arizona Daily Star's editorial cartoonist David Fitzsimmons and Tucson comedian Robert Mac will headline the benefit that includes food, wine and a silent auction.
Free speech and laughter go hand-in-hand, said Lisa Horner, executive director of Access Tucson in a press release.
"We can't think of a better way to celebrate the first amendment and the value we place on free speech than to invite Tucson to enjoy an evening of laughter and fun," she said. "'Fitz,' and Robert are not only home-grown, but exemplify important freedoms in our country," she said.
Access Tucson Community Media has spent 28 years promoting the right to free speech through its classes, productions and local coverage.
Tickets are $30 per person and $50 per couple, including day of show. They can be purchased online, at the door or by calling 624-9833 or 275-0864.
