Bad & Newsie: A CCI Summer Comedy Benefit

  • Dad's Garage 569 Ezzard Street Southeast Atlanta, GA, 30312 United States (map)

To kick off the summer in style, the Center for Civic Innovation is hosting a Summer Benefit Improv Comedy Show!

For the 4th Annual Summer Comedy show in 2019, our theme is "Bad and Newsie," focused on the importance and state of journalism today. The event will feature Atlanta-based journalists and leaders in media and press as the actors. Join us for an evening of comedy and fun with our friends, family, and supporters in Atlanta!

We are proud to partner with our friends at Dad’s Garage to create an experience that is both hilarious and informative. All the proceeds from this event go towards supporting our civics education work and our entrepreneurial programs.

We are also looking for some volunteers to assist with the comedy show! Learn more and get signed up here.
