Kevin Wanzer mixes his messages with humor.
Carmel’s Entry Point Church will host A Comedy Cabaret featuring Wanzer, a motivational comedian from Indianapolis. The family-friendly event will be at Morty’s Comedy Joint, 3824 E. 82nd St., Indianapolis, at 5 p.m. Sept. 24.
Wanzer’s motto is empowering audiences, one laugh at a time.
“Kevin tells stories, and there is a message, regardless of the audience he is speaking to. It’s always centered around choose to love,” said Matthew Vire, vice president and program director for Choose to Love, LLC. “It’s a simple message about universal love and kindness. It’s a message that is relevant pretty much anywhere. It’s delivered through comedy, so the audience is laughing the entire time.”
The evening will include dinner with the price of admission.
“We didn’t want to do a traditional gala kind of thing,” Vire said. “There will be a few silent and live auction items available, and we’ll do some fundraising things during the evening. What’s different about this particular event is we’re putting it together to be entertainment.”
Wanzer’s message will only be part of the entertainment.
“We’re planning a 90-minute program,” Vire said. “Kevin is headlining and will emcee. The band that plays at EPC will be there. We have a list of about nine or 10 singers who will perform with the band. All of the songs are funny.”
Proceeds will go to EPC and two other nonprofit organizations.
“EPC will also share some of those proceeds with Midwest Academy, which is EPC’s home,” Vire said. “It’s a small, nonprofit private school that serves kids with learning differences. The other is Outreach Indiana, which provides services to homeless youth in Indiana.”
Tickets are $50 for adult and $20 for youth. Children 12 and under are $15. For tickets, visit mortyscomedy-com.seatengine.com.
