Cajun Comic Relief

2014's show was another home run!

On Saturday, March 8, 2014, Goodwill hosted the 22nd annual Cajun Comic Relief event (CCR), a fundraiser which supports Goodwill's employment and training programs.  This fundraiser has supported Goodwill's programs for the past twelve years, and it means so much to those Acadiana residents who benefit from Goodwill's community programs.

CCR is a comedy show highlighting Cajun comedians from all over the South.  The show is performed twice, once at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m., and packed with entertainment from some of the areas top comedians and musicians.  The local talent of musicians Brad Brinkley and Chubby Carrier began the afternoon and evening lineup, performing for two hours before the actual showtimes of 2pm and 7pm.  Talk about some GREAT music!  It really set the mood for a good time to follow.  At "showtime", it was a constant lineup of laughter, as Louisiana Purchase, Magic Mike, Steve Shaw and John Morgan, a/k/a "The Ragin Cajun", kept people in stitches!  There's no place like Acadiana, and no Cajun Comedy better than what you'll find at Cajun Comic Relief!   

If you missed this year's show, or just want to see it again, you can order a DVD of the evening performance.  Call Goodwill's corporate office at 337-261-5811.  DVD's are $20.00 and can be picked up at the office or we can mail it to you for an additional shipping fee.
