Tony Steinbach Yells and Throws Things is exactly what it sounds like. It's award winning semi-controlled chaos with jokes and machetes and cucumbers and fake babies. This comedy and juggling show has traveled all around North America with reviews like 'that was the best thing I've ever seen' and 'I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe' and even 'I enjoyed that'. Tony is also a fixture of the Columbus Variety scene, performing at bars and and magic theaters and Quiz Boxes around the city. The show is really good and you'll like it.

Save Wilma's Hips (Presented by Hashtag Comedy)

190626-save-wilmas-hips.jpg

Hey! Clay Vansickle here, from the Wednesday cast with Hashtag Comedy. My lovable, fat, goofy dog needs hip surgery, and I'm goin'-a-fund-raisin'. I have a wonderful Saint Bernard named Wilma- here's a picture of her dumb, foldy face! Wilma, whom I love dearly, was recently diagnosed with bilateral hip displaysia, which means that her femur bones are not properly attached to her hip sockets. This causes pain, arthritis, lameness, lethargy, and general difficulty enjoying normal puppy activities. Wilma's case is particularly severe.  We've been encouraged through consultations with Ohio State Vet. that surgery is Wilma's best option - they're recommending a total hip replacement, or THR. Seven out of every eight dogs diagnosed with bilateral hip displaysia can get by with having only one hip replaced- Wilma may need both. The surgery, under the steady hands of OSU's orthopedic surgeons, has a 95% success rate. Her surgery is scheduled for December 9th.

100% of the proceeds of this show will go towards the surgery for Wilma.
