In Africa alone, one out of every five deaths for children under five is due to complications from unclean water, including diseases like cholera. The unsafe water can also lead to the infectious eye disease trachoma. This unsafe water is also used to irrigate crops, leading to poor harvests and the transmission of parasites. These issues are compounded by eyesight problems, which many times are caused by unclean water. Without proper care, these easily treatable conditions become nightmares for those affected, taking away their very ability to function. Through the Vision 2020 Project, these issues will be combated and lead to improved education, vastly improved health conditions and ideal food security.

What's up: Mimi Fischer, the hilarious comedian, storyteller, hoop-dancer and regular from The Chris Gethard Show (who is 64 years young) is announcing her first solo show, A Late Bloomer. The show's title is a nod to her starting her career in comedy at an age that most think should relegate her to knitting… but that's not the case.

Show: A Late Bloomer

  • Mimi’s comedic solo show focuses on how her unique journey into hoop-dancing and comedy created her new life
  • She jokes about the difference between age and maturity and the positive side of aging (is it true?!)
  • She touches on the challenges of being in a peer group with mostly all 20-something-year-olds when you’re defined as “elderly” by the dictionary but definitely don’t feel that way
  • The show is a part of The PIT's SoloCom Festival (NYC's only all-new solo comedy festival)

Date: Friday, November 17th at 6pm

Location: The People’s Improv Theater  Mainstage (Striker) - 123 E 24th St NYC, 10010
