Two stand-up comedians who performed Wednesday night at the Tyku Wine Bar and Lounge in Killeen were trying to do more than just make the audience laugh — they also were promoting cancer awareness.
Comedian Patrick Sirois, a Copperas Cove native, and Lane Krarup, from Wisconsin, teamed with Be The Match, a national nonprofit organization, to encourage audience members to join the registry for bone marrow transplants.
The show, titled Laugh 4 Life, also raised money by charging attendees a $5 cover.
“We both love doing stand-up and comedy rap. If we can do something that we love and also raise money for a good cause, it’s like it’s twice as fun,” Krarup said.
Sirois said he has performed shows for Be The Match before and enjoys helping the organization promote finding bone marrow donors.
