God gave me this MS shit to save my life – Richard Pryor
Please welcome to our stage "The undisputed heavyweight champ of rage-fueled humor" Bill Burr (Breaking Bad/Date Night) and “Standup, impressionist, actor and renaissance freak” Craig Gass (Sex in the City/Howard Stern Show) as they host an evening of comedy, music and art in benefit of the Rock Against MS Foundation - Helping People NOW! The objective is to help those that suffer from MS, with the goal to build the first of many MS resource centers across the Nation and outreach services.
These two comedic geniuses have teamed up to host the 5th ANNUAL ROCK AGAINST MS BENEFIT CONCERT & AWARD SHOW, being held at the historic Los Angeles Theatre in downtown LA, on March 25, 2017. "Richard Pryor is the best standup comedian of all time” states Bill Burr. “When he passed away, I felt like I lost a friend and I never met the man. That's how great he was. I am truly honored to be a small part of this event."
This year RAMS is privileged to honor and celebrate the life of the world’s most iconic and influential comedian, RICHARD PRYOR. This is an additional award, recently added for public figures that have created awareness and outreach to educate people of this ... As Richard Pryor said “This MS shit.” “Richard’s genius wasn’t just making people laugh, he used his comedy as a way to communicate the truth,” explains Pryor’s wife Jennifer Lee Pryor. “More than anyone, Richard could appreciate RAMS’ mission to not remain silent. RAMS uses every means possible to enlighten, inform and educate the public about MS. Telling the truth is their genius too.”
TICKETS, ARTIST LINE-UP AND MORE INFORMATION WILL BE RELEASED IN THE COMING WEEKS!
