United Nations Comedy Tour Performs to Promote Diversity
A group of comedians is making its way back to Charlottesville for the second year in a row.
The United Nations Comedy Tour's goal is to promote diversity. The lineup includes an African-American, a Caucasian, an Asian, and a member from the LGBT community.
Organizers say bringing people together through laughter is the best way to bridge cultural gaps.
"There's Asian, African-American—it's just kind of a really nice melting pot of comics and they can talk about their experience and their background and you know it's like a shared experience when people are like, ‘oh wait a minute, I can't relate,' but then you can just relate to everyday experience through jokes and it brings people together," said participating comedian Erin Foley.
The show will be held Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Paramount Theater.
