I was privileged to provide the entertainment for the annual Mariners Inn Christmas party. Mariners Inn is a residential substance abuse treatment and transitional housing facility in the heart of Detroit. Most of the men at Mariner’s Inn reached rock bottom a long time ago, and MI gives them a safe haven to face down their personal demons. They have some amazing success stories and equally amazing tales of heartbreak.
This was easily my favorite audience to date; they were engaging and responsive, and for once I didn’t mind the occasional heckle. I just wanted to give a shout to the MI residents and thank them for letting me come and tell my foul, nasty jokes in their nice clean home 😉
Check out their recently upgraded website if you get a chance. There’s a button for donations right on the home page, hint, hint.
They do good work, y’all, and provide a service we can all truly appreciate.
