The comedy club welcomes to the stage a colorful cast. All have some kind of dementia; they come to us from a skilled nursing facility and three adult day centers. Each performer shares his her own special brand of humor. Some are funny, some poignant. Everyone, especially past and present caregivers and all Alzheimer's family members, are invited to the show.

Betty Abshire's cast of characters and their helpers remind us that in the long valleys of life, we cannot continually weep--sometimes we just have to laugh! --Dr. Jane McKee--Professor Emeritus, Marshall University
