REMINDER: Burien C.A.R.E.S. ‘Open Bite Night’ fundraiser will be held this Saturday. Feb. 8, starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Burien Elks Lodge.

In 2019 Burien C.A.R.E.S. took in 900 animals – all Burien animals either running loose or surrendered.

“We are a no kill shelter and pride ourselves on our return to owner rate, which is over 60%.”

Tickets are $20 for animal lovers and $50 for non-animal lovers 🙂

You can also purchase your ticket in person at either C.A.R.E.S. or Paws & Relax Doggie Day Care.

Meet the comedians for Open Bite Nite for Burien CARES!

LUCY TOLLEFSON is a writer and comedian from Madison, WI based in Seattle, WA. Lucy has performed in the 2019 Salem Comedy and Spirits Festival (MA), Intersections Festival 2019 (WA) and L.A. Laugh Riot Grrrl Fest. She won Seattle’s “Comedy Clash” 2019 competition.

Lucy has studied with the Second City, is a contributing writer to The Syndrome Mag, and produces the Sacrificial Tofu comedy shows in Seattle. She performs regularly around Washington, Oregon, and wherever else she has a friend’s couch to crash on.

ADAM PASI was an outstanding finalist in the 40th Seattle International Comedy Competition. Frequently intense, but never taking himself too seriously, Adam encourages all who will listen to join him in his mostly imaginary, but always amusing, crusade against…well, something. Whatever it is, being loud and silly is the only way to fight it.

MIKE COLETTA is a Seattle based comedian originally from Alaska. He started comedy performing improv in the wheat-infested, cultural boomtown of Pullman, Washington. There, Mike cracked up college audiences in the Nuthouse Improv Comedy Troupe where he performed and directed.

Mike connects with audiences through his quick wit, energetic delivery, and positive presence. His honest reaction to life experiences completely envelops his comedy, and emits a fun, passionate disposition to audiences. Mike has performed at The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Emerald City Comicon, Treefort Fest, and Bumbershoot. He’s also the co-host of the HugLife Podcast.

ROBERT PIDDE is a Burien native and already parts of his comedy album “Driving at the Speed of Friendship” can be heard on Sirius XM. The rest of the album will be available on iTunes and Spotify later this month.

Having already done well over 2,500 shows in the past seven years, Robert is more than just a well seasoned comic. His love of stand-up, silliness, and crowds can be felt from the second he steps on the stage – from a dead-on Seinfeld impression to a Pterodactyl scream that will leave you entertained.
