CLEVELAND - A comedy festival at Playhouse Square this weekend is helping to bring healing the the community of Cleveland Heights.
The Big Little Comedy Festival is donating a portion of its ticket proceeds to the Jim Brennan Fund.
Jim Brennan was the popular owner of Brennan’s Colony. He was killed in a robbery of his restaurant on June 30.
"One of the things that we at Big Little Comedy are passionate about is reaching back into the community that we're serving and being able to help out,” said Tina Jackson, Big Little Comedy’s executive director and creative consultant. “The Brennan story really touched us.”
The comedy festival, a mix of stand up, sketch and improv comedy, has two shows nightly at 7 and 9 p.m. through Sunday July 20. In the theater district's Kennedy's Theatre, tickets are $15 and $20.
Another fundraiser this weekend for the Brennan fund will be a cookout at the Church of the Saviour at 2537 Lee Rd. in Cleveland Heights from 4 until 8 p.m.
