About the Hostages and Missing Families Forum
The hostages have been taken from their families for over 100 days and we are producing this benefit to help get them back! We will be making donations from proceeds from the ticket sales towards the Hostages and Missing Families Forum. In support of Israel. Our hostages are still stuck in Gaza, under Hamas’s reign and we must do everything in our power to get them back!

We figured what better way to raise awareness than through laughter.

About Hostages and Missing Families Forum:
The Hostage and Missing Families Forum was formed by the families of the abductees less than 24 hours after the horrific attack by Hamas on Israel on October 7th, in which more than 1300 innocent civilians were murdered and hundreds were taken hostage. The Forum is volunteer-based and laser-focused on bringing the hostages back home to their families, to us. 

The forum offers families holistic medical and emotional support as well as professional assistance, and advances the ongoing efforts locally, regionally and globally, to bring the hostages and the missing back home. 

We demand the safe return of all citizens who have been taken hostage by the terrorist group Hamas. We will not rest until every hostage is released and returns home safely. You can help bring them back home

One of Comedy Central's "Comics to Watch," Harrison has also received many awards and honors for his comedy, including the Andy Kaufman Award (2010) for creativity and originality in comedy, the Shorty Award in collaboration with Comedy Central and the New York Comedy Festival for "Best Emerging Comic" (2011), and the Magners Comic Stand-Off (2011). On television, Harrison was featured on NBC's Last Comic Standing (for a clip, click here), AXS.TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, and National Geographic Channel's Brain Games, and has appeared on MTV, SPIKE TV, the Discovery Channel, and the Science Channel.
