Comedy for Claws is back for its 2nd year

Hosted at the historic La Jolla Comedy Store, the second annual “Comedy for Claws” is on Wednesday, March 8 at 8PM, and the “American Me Comedy Show” will donate half of its revenue from ticket sales toward Lions Tigers & Bears.

The proceeds will enable the big cat and exotic animal sanctuary to continue caring for its 65+ rescued animals that have been illegally owned, used for photo opportunities or trained to perform in circuses. All proceeds benefit the rescued animals, providing food, enrichment, habitat maintenance, veterinary care and more.
