AROUND TOWN: Special Kids Special Families Night of Comedy a seven-year tradition

Filed under: News

November 18, 2018: By:  Nancy Norton considers “humor a basic human need.” That’s a good thing, because she’s a comedian. That hadn’t been her career path. She was a registered nurse but “got out of it to save lives!” she told a laughing crowd at Special Kids Special Families’ Night of Humor. Now she ministers to adults “who need to laugh 30 times a day. The average adult just laughs 17 times a day.”  This seventh annual humor event Oct. 20 was a fundraiser for SKSF’s Zach’s Place, one of the two licensed Colorado day-care facilities combining respite and day care for children with physical, intellectual and emotional disabilities. Zach’s Place youngsters added their own joy to the evening with a performance of “Happy.” And guests responded by raising $50,000.
