Rusty Dewees to perform at ‘Lungs for Kate’ benefit in Bristol
BRISTOL — Comedian Rusty Dewees will visit Bristol on April 11 for a show to benefit a young woman in need of a double lung transplant.
Dewees will perform at Mount Abraham Union High School at 7 p.m. that Saturday evening.
Proceeds from the show will support Mount Abe alumna and Bristol resident Kate Heffernan, who has cystic fibrosis and is on the lung transplant waiting list. Tickets cost $25 each and can be purchased through www.lungsforkate.com.
Dewees, who grew up in Stowe, regularly performs in his “Logger” character that he created in the 1990s.
An eclectic and innovative act, his one-man comedy show is sometimes described as “Blue Collar Comedy meets Prairie Home Companion,” and has been steadily selling out theaters, large and small, throughout New England ever since it hit the stage in 1998.
Rusty does it all and keeps his fans and audiences laughing, as he puts it, “’til their backs get better.” The event is sponsored by The H-Team at Heritage Automotive.
