National Comedian to Headline in Baltimore to Raise Funds for Business PAC

National Comedian to Headline in Baltimore to Raise Funds for Business PAC
TOWSON--Legendary comedian Louie Anderson will headline Maryland
Business Leadership Political Action Committee (PAC)’s second annual
fundraiser at the Baltimore Comedy Factory Wednesday, October 17th for
one show only announced PAC Chairman Cal Ewing Thursday.

“We don’t think politics and business in Maryland is a laughing
matter, but we do think it is important for business to come together
and support a shared goal--a better business climate in Maryland to
create jobs,” Mr. Ewing said.

Louie Anderson is an actor, writer and producer, who has performed to
standing-room only crowds throughout his career. Currently, he
performs at the Louie Anderson Theatre in Las Vegas. He is here by
special arrangement with the PAC group. Throughout his career, Mr.
Anderson has held innumerable feature roles on films such as “Ferris
Bueller’s Day Off” ,“Touched by an Angel” and others. He also appeared
on such shows as “Happy Days” and hosted TV’s “Family Feud.”

“Jobs and a healthy business climate to create and expand jobs in
Maryland is not a Democrat or Republican issue,” noted Mr. Ewing,
“After what the business community just went through in the course of
two special sessions and the regular session in January, there is no
doubt but that a hefty dose of educated business savvy is essential to
improving Maryland’s competitive posture and business climate. We are
supporting candidates who we believe best offer that understanding
regardless of political affiliation,” he said.

Tickets to the event are $100 each. Sponsorships which include a “Meet
and Greet with Mr. Anderson” are available. For more information,
