The Fort Lauderdale Improv will be transformed into a Carnival Cruise Line Punchliner Comedy Club – for one night, at least – as part of a special fundraiser benefiting Kids in Distress of Broward and Palm Beach Counties taking place on Wednesday, November 18 at 8:30 p.m.

Funds raised from the show will be used to help Kids in Distress, a nationally accredited agency working for the prevention of child abuse, preservation of the family, and the treatment of abused and neglected children.

The evening will feature hilarious 30-minute sets by four of the Carnival’s most popular comedians – Vince Morris, Jason Blanchard, Pat Godwin and Thea Vidale  – who have entertained guests in the line’s shipboard comedy clubs as well as comedy venues throughout the country.

Carnival’s Punchliner Comedy Clubs presented by George Lopez are featured aboard all 24 of the line’s ships, with a lineup of laugh-out-loud funnymen and women each voyage.  It’s estimated that Carnival hosts upwards of 20,000 comedy shows annually fleetwide.

Tickets are $25 per person.  The Fort Lauderdale Improv is located at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at One Seminole Way, Hollywood, FL 33314.
