Hey, Hey, Hey in my Dwayne Nelson voice! It’s me again, here to tell ya’ What It Do!Laughter is what it do! This Saturday, August 30 at the Sports Bar and Grill (25597 Main Street) in Barstow. I need you to come out and laugh out loud with upcoming Comedian Mac Rome and a host other hilarious comedians from all over. Barstow is doing it BIG yawl!
Founder and owner of the original “Wing It” restaurant in San Bernardino and owner of “Artistically Clean Cleaning Services”, Bennie Fredrick, along with Comedian Mac Rome have teamed up to bring laughter to the community. Unlike anger or sadness, comedy can be an escape from reality even if it’s for a short moment. In my opinion, laughter soothes the SOUL. It allows you to release and let go of the day to day hustle and bustle.
I’m so thankful for comedians such as Red Fox, Richard Prior, Rodney Dangerfield, George Lopez, Bill Cosby, Moms Mabley, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldburg, and George Burns. That’s only a drop in the comedy bucket of GREATS. So with that being said, I hope you can make it to Barstow this Saturday. Remember a frown upside down turns into a smile. Have a blessed and safe holiday.
Just a couple of weeks ago we ran an article on Brittany Evans, a local Fontana teen who overcame bullying by following her God given potential who is not only a motivational speaker but is also a inventor with her patent pending innovation Sparkbudz. She has recently been promoting her invention, as well as sharing her testimony to teens and young adults in her community. Her latest endeavor includes a speaking engagement that she will participate in at her local church during their “Millionaire Boot Camp” on Saturday, September 13.
She says, “God has done many amazing things in my life, not only has he blessed me with an amazing supportive family, but he has brought people in my life to help promote the invention he has blessed me with. There have been times were I felt I have been tested but I allowed those tests to become my testimony”.
Brittany who balances school and work, also gives back by volunteering has a junior trainer for an organization called B.O.S.S The Movement. She motivates and inspires to tell teens to follow their path and be unique.
