Forgotten Harvest 25th Annual Comedy Night
Late-night host Seth Meyers will headline the 25th Annual Comedy Night hosted by metro Detroit’s only food rescue organization, Forgotten Harvest, at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, June 17 at 8 p.m.
In 1992, Forgotten Harvest’s Comedy Night began with the support of television, film star and local native Tim Allen and Mark Ridley, Detroit-area comedy impresario. This night has become Detroit’s premier annual comedy event that brings in renowned celebrities like Jay Leno, David Coulier, Martin Short and Sinbad.
The event offers a chance for Forgotten Harvest and their supporters to celebrate their achievements in the community.
“It is our distinct pleasure to have Seth join us for Comedy Night,” said Forgotten Harvest CEO Kirk Mayes. “Forgotten Harvest is fortunate to have the support of Seth, our sponsors and the community at our largest annual fundraising event. Proceeds will go directly to fight food insecurity in metro Detroit.”
