Skippy and the Comedy Warrior Live at the Capitol Theatre

Cleveland Cinemas
Tonight at 7, the Capitol Theatre will host a special screening of the documentary Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor. Marc "Skippy" Price and Joe Kashnow will each do a live standup comedy set before the screening of the film, which explores how veterans use comedy to deal with their injuries. Price — "Skippy" from the '80s sitcom Family Ties — has opened for Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld. He's starred in movies and hosted late-night talk shows. Wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2003, Kashnow spent almost two years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., learning how to walk with what remained of his leg. He began his standup comedy career in 2012, and he also works as a motivational speaker. General admission tickets are $25 and available at the box office or online. Veterans and active duty military personnel will be admitted free with proper ID; passes will be available at the box office. (Niesel)
