TENWEST: It's Not Just Technology
The TENWEST Impact Festival October 11 through 20 encourages commitment to innovation in all things, but few might have expected it to inspire Tucson's first known 24-hour comedy telethon, from 6 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12 through 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.
Produced by the Tucson Comedy Alliance, the Telethon offers Tucsonans a "Wit"man's sampler of the wide variety of funny folks in Tucson. They provide us with almost two-dozen shows a week where we can laugh in community.
The telethon also benefits our aspiring standup comedians by allowing them to stretch from the 3 to 5 minutes available at open mics to 15 minutes all the way up to an hour onstage.
The remodeled Mid-Century modern Hotel McCoy is hosting the event. Admission is by entirely optional donation. Donations will be taken throughout the event to provide prize money to recognize teachers who win a pitch competition about their classroom innovations related to technology and the arts.
TIM will be well represented at the event with some duo teams, the all-Spanish-Language team ¿Como Sé Dice? and Friends of Make Pretends (F.O.M.P).
TIM 3V3 winners Buttercoat will perform a victory lap at Tucson Meet Yourself on Saturday, 10/12. Find them at 7:15 in the TENWEST Pavillion hosted by Local First Tucson. Can't miss it; it's next to that big, red sculpture at Stone and Pennington. They'll be promoting the TENWEST 86,400 Second Tucson Comedy Telethon hosted by Tucson Comedy Alliance.
