Layups2Standup Announces 3rd Annual “Why Not?? Comedy Show”

Acclaimed comedian Demetrius “Juice” Deason and OKC Thunder’s very own Russell Westbrook will host an infamous evening of comedy with the 3rd Annual “Why Not?? Comedy Show”

Friday, August 17, 2018 (Oklahoma City, OK) – Layups2Standup, an innovative brand that channels the love of basketball and comedy to create community events, has announced the return of the “Why Not?? Comedy Show” hosted by renowned comedian Demetrius “Juice” Deason and NBA MVP Russell Westbrook. The event will take place Friday, October 26th at the iconic Tower Theater in Oklahoma City.

The inaugural “Why Not?? Comedy Show” was created to become a staple event in Oklahoma, kicking off the Thunder’s NBA season. In only its third year, the “Why Not?? Comedy Show” has emerged as one of the most anticipated events of the year. In addition to comedy and cocktails, proceeds of the comedy show will benefit Regional Food Bank Oklahoma – Food For Kids Backpack Program. Through the Backpack Program, the Regional Food Bank delivers pre-assembled food sacks and backpacks to participating schools at no cost to the school or the child. The food bags contain approximately 10 different purchased foods designed to provide nutrition and calories for chronically hungry children over the weekend.

“We are excited to be back, kicking off another Thunder season with the City of Oklahoma at the 3rd Annual “Why Not?? Comedy Show”- but I must say the nonprofit that we went with this year has really hit home,” said Comedian and Founder of Layups2standup Demetrius Deason. “It brings great joy to know our initiative in partnership with the Regional Food Bank Oklahoma plans to feed 180 kids through the Backpack Program, over a year time span…And that is what Layups2Standup, myself, and Russell are about!”

This years’ event is slated to be bigger and better, cultivating an evening of laughter and premiere entertainment with a diverse lineup of established and emerging comedic talent. With a star-studded red carpet lined with celebrities, professional athletes, corporate partners, and the “who’s who” of Oklahoma, “WHY NOT?” attend.

Tickets go on sale Friday, August 17th, 2018 at 10:00am (cst) and can be purchased here: Why Not?? Comedy Show Tickets

About Regional Food Bank Oklahoma – Food for Kids Programs
One in four children in Oklahoma has inconsistent access to healthy food. The Regional Food Bank is working hard to end childhood hunger in Oklahoma by providing chronically hungry children with the meals they need today to help them thrive. More than 37 percent of the Regional Food Bank’s emergency food recipients are children. Last year, the Regional Food Bank saw a dramatic increase in the need for food assistance. For the first time ever, nearly 44,000 chronically hungry children were served through the Food for Kids Programs, a 17 percent increase.
Because there is a critical connection between childhood nutrition and cognitive and physical development, even nutritional deficiencies of a relatively short-term nature can negatively impact a child’s health, behavior and the ability to concentrate and perform complex tasks. Going without food can cause behavioral and psychological effects such as depression, aggression, anxiety and poor social skills in children. Food is the most essential school supply. Hungry children cannot learn.

The Regional Food Bank serves children directly through four programs in its Food for Kids Programs: Backpack Program, Kids Cafe, Summer Feeding and School Pantries. For more information: Regional Food Bank OKC Food For Kids
