Laugh 'til it hurts while helping to keep Detroiters Warm...

On Saturday, March 24th, the Grand Ballroom at the MGM Grand Detroit will turn into Comedy Central with "A Night of Giggles & Gloves II", a one-night only comedy show benefiting local Detroit charity "Mittens for Detroit".

The event will be hosted by the star of Comedy Central's "Key & Peele" show Keegan Michael Key and starring WJLB’s Morning Show Host Coco along with a variety of other very talented local comedians.

Erin Cummings
Mittens for Detroit warms more than hands
Mittens for Detroit, the brainchild of Detroit 187 actress Erin Cummings and co-host for this comedy evening, is a community initiative whose sole purpose is to collect and distribute new gloves and mittens to children and adults in the city of Detroit.

Mittens For Detroit has been warming hands and hearts since the organization was founded in November 2010 by Erin Cummings, star of ABCʼs Detroit 1-8-7, and a dedicated team of volunteers. A community initiative, MFD exists solely to provide new, unused mittens and gloves to those in need – both children and adults – in metro Detroit. Mittens and gloves are collected in drop boxes at a constantly growing list of merchants and businesses throughout metro Detroit.

It's going to be one HOT Show...
“We are so excited to bring ‘A Night of Giggles & Gloves’ back to the MGM Grand Ballroom and this year’s show is bigger and better than ever,” said Cummings. “Keegan is such a talented performer and wanted to return to Detroit and give back to the community he lived and performed in for many years. He, along with WJLB’s Coco and Foolish share my passion for Detroit and its residents and I know people who come to the show will have a great time and truly help warm the hands and hearts of Detroiters in need this Winter.”

A Detroit native, Key got his start in comedy at Second City Detroit. Currently he is starring on his own show, Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele”. Key is a founding member of the Planet Ant Theatre in Hamtramck, Michigan, where he has directed several productions. He has taught acting and improvisation at the University of Detroit, Second City Training Center, Mosaic Youth Theatre, and Wayne State University.

Other Comics scheduled to appear include: Coco’s co-host Foolish; Leslie Ann Thompson, who is returning from last year’s event; Dearborn’s own, Ali Abdallah, who is best known for his You Tube video “Cribs – Arab American” style. DJ Joe Maroon will be providing the music for the evening.

Tickets for this fun evening start at $25 and there are also preferred seating tickets for $50.  Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm.  Purchase your tickets now at
