Punchline Philly – PAL Fundraiser Opening, Rus Gutin 8/21
Catching up on posts, this one happened in June, but I did have the photos on Fox 29. I’m running the photos here for two reasons, one it was a great event for a great charity, and I also wanted you to know about a show coming up on August 21 with Rus Gutin.
I don’t get out to many shows as I’m always on the run but when I was invited to cover a PAL charity event with a few of my favorite people.
Like Mike Jerrick, co-anchor at Fox 29,
who got a little help from his friend Alex Holley, who was more than happy to hold his “cue” cards while he did his schtick.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Philadelphia FOP Survivors Fund (www.fop5.org), which provides financial and other support to survivors of Philadelphia police officers killed in the line of duty.
“We sincerely appreciate what Punch Line is doing,” said Steve Weiler, vice president FOP Lodge 5. “Without events like this, we wouldn’t have anything. We need every nickel to spend on helping the officers’ survivors. There’s always someone in need who calls us and reaches out to help.”
Stars Stand Up for Fallen Officers is part of the two-week celebration marking the opening of Punch Line Philly, Live Nation’s first laugh lounge on the East Coast. Punch Line Philly is located in Fishtown, just a few steps away from The Fillmore Philadelphia, hailed as “the most beautiful live rock music venue in the United States.”
There’s nearly nothing I can relay here from the comedy acts as my ears are still burning
