Charleston, SC – Comedian and comedy club owner Vinnie Brand will perform in Charleston next week at a fundraiser for Bobbie Rose’s campaign.

The show starts at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19 at the American Theater (456 King St.).

Tickets are $45, and can be purchased online from a link on the campaign website ( Attendees can also pay at the door beginning at 7 p.m. that evening.

“I’m very pleased to have this unique type of campaign event,” says Rose, Democratic candidate for the 1st Congressional Dist.

“Political fundraisers can too often be stiff, boring events for attendees, but not this one,” she says, referring to the show as a “’FUN’ raiser.”

Rose knows Brand through her husband Tom Ucciferri, a television stage manager who’s worked and been friends with the comedian for many years.

Brand has performed at every comedy club in New York City, and with routines on the everyday topics of marriage, family and bills.

He has owned The Stress Factory, a comedy club in New Brunswick, NJ, for 20 years, and has appeared on many television shows, including “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” and Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd.”

Mon Oct 15, 2012 at 4:30 AM PT: The Rose campaign event featured has been canceled due to conflict with the entertainer’s schedule.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
