In June of 2013, Christy was performing on her acclaimed Girl On Girl Comedy show in Nashville, when she suddenly felt ill. Christy pushed through to finish her show that night. The next morning, she was rushed to the hospital. Christy was unaware she’d had a heart attack the night before while performing, and was scheduled for immediate triple bypass heart surgery at Vanderbilt Hospital. She survived, but is now facing overwhelming medical costs.
Christy Eidson herself has a big heart in every way. Over the years, she has donated her time and comedic talent to raise funds for multiple non-profit organizations. She’s provided numerous opportunities for new comics, and never stops doing what she can for others.
Now, some of Christy’s good friends in comedy are coming together to help her and show their love for Christy. Join us at The Comedy Catch along with comedians Jerry Harvey, Jessica Carter, Ben Thompson, Andie Lynne, Red Squirrel, James Victor Cherry, and Thomas Prunier on September 8, for this superb fundraiser to help an amazing lady of comedy!
