Dying to Find the Cure for Murder: A Cell Camp Benefit

Dying to Find a Cure for Murder: A Cell Camp Benefit
Friday, October 23rd at 10:00 at Studio B

Murder kills millions each year, yet a cure for the disease has not been found. Comedy troupe Cell Camp is taking a stab at a formal benefit to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for murder.

The benefit will feature guest speakers, a murder prevention presentation, a documentary of living with someone diagnosed with murder and a performance by dance troupe Funky See Funky Do.

Right in time for Halloween, the event will take place on Friday, October 23rd from 9:45pm-11:00pm at Studio Be located at 3110 North Sheffield Ave - conveniently located off the Belmont el stop. Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door.

The event will include minimal hors d'oeuvres, a raffle for prizes from local merchants and jello shots. Minimal alcohol will be provided so patrons are encouraged to bring their own. Coolers of ice, cups and tiny umbrellas will be available.

All proceeds for the event will go towards funding Cell Camp comedy and keeping Chicago laughing its bloody head off.

Cell Camp's smartly twisted style of sketch comedy stands out and creates buzz. SNL alum Garrett Morris called the group "brilliant", while Time Out Chicago dubbed Cell Camp "totally tactless" as well as one of the "best and brightest" at the 2009 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival.
