SPECIAL EVENT - NO PASSES

At Death Penalty Focus, we’re committed to challenging the conventional wisdom that the death penalty is necessary in our democratic society. We’re always looking for new ways to get this point across, and that’s why we’re holding the 2nd Annual Stand-Up for Justice on Thursday, December 7th. If our last comedy benefit was any indication, seats will sell out fast, so reserve your tickets today!



With performances by outstanding comedians we hope to raise spirits, awareness, and much needed funds to support the public education and political organizing work of Death Penalty Focus.



We will host a VIP dessert reception after the main program. Joining emcee Mike Farrell at this post-performance party will be special celebrity guests such as Shelley Fabares, star of The Donna Reed Show and Coach, and James Cromwell, of Babe, Six Feet Under, and Queen, as well as all the evening’s performers.



Headliner Will Durst is one of the most popular stand-up comedians in the country today. Mother Jones said: “As the sacred cows set themselves up for slaughter each night at six, America cries out for a man with the aim, strength and style to swat the partisan political piñatas upside their heads. Will Durst is that man.”



Join us for this special event, and help us continue our public education and political organizing work without your support. Let’s all have a good time for a good cause on Thursday, Dec. 7th.
