Cedric the Entertainer, DC Young Fly, Deon Cole and Michael Blackson did a A-1 job with bringing in the crowds and the laughter to the ATL!
It is true, that laughter is a form of healing. The 1st & Goal Comedy Bowl will help heal the community with portions of the show proceeds will go to former NFL football player Rashad Jennings’ non-profit organization, The Rashad Jennings Foundation which strives to inspire youth by making education fun, providing mentorship for individual success, and promoting health and fitness worldwide.
