The comic minds behind The SuperHappy Trivia Challenge and The SuperHappy Radio Hour have partnered with The Magnetic Theatre for an ambitious, 2-day fundraising event.  And it WILL be fun!

For almost three years, The SuperHappy Trivia Challenge has been keeping audiences in stitches with their monthly, live comedy game show.  Its combination of irreverent humor and improvisational leeway makes it as unpredictable as it is hysterical. In the spring of 2017 they launched their second stage project: The SuperHappy Radio Hour. Also a monthly offering, this scripted radio-style sketch comedy show is recorded for podcast before a live studio audience and has brought the best of the best in Asheville stage talent behind their mics.

The SuperHappy Telethon will span 8 hours over two nights at Magnetic 375 in the River Arts District, featuring best of and new material from The Radio Hour, segments of The Trivia Challenge, and sketch comedy from the SH team, as well as stand-up comedians, musical acts, and specialty performers. Each night will be broken into two, 2 -hour segments with ticket price points for a single segment, evening or full weekend pass.  No two segments will include the same material/acts.  While this show promises to be a comedically skewed send up of famous telethons gone by, they take their fundraising and beneficiary very seriously.  Proceeds from the event will go to the not for profit organization, Arms Around ASD (http://armsaroundasd.org), an Asheville based resource center, providing services for people on the Autism spectrum and their families, regardless of age, ability or income.  The telethon will not only donate a sizable portion of ticket sales, but will also be donating all proceeds from on-site donations, as well as an online donation portal.

*The SuperHappy Radio Hour is available to stream or download for free at SoundCloud, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.
