Stand Up for the Next Generation

Three very diverse comedians come together for a very important cause, underprivileged, misunderstood kids, and young adults who have had struggles with life. Many of these kids are mislabeled as class clowns, misfits, etc. Some are looking for identity, some have been abused or neglected, while others are just bullied for one reason or another.

Khurum Sheikh is a 25-year veteran of the Ann Arbor Police Department who now does comedy all over the country. Originally from Pakistan, his comedy touches on current events and our War on Terror from the hilariously unique perspective of a Pakistan Police Officer in the USA. He has opened for Dave Attell and is currently in a movie starring Mason Pryor--Richard Pryor's son--called Next Generation about up and coming comedians.


Carla Goldbusch was raised in a poor, conservative, Southern Baptist home. As a lesbian and the youngest of 6 children, it was the perfect environment for comedic survival skills to flourish. And flourish they did. Finding original humor in serious topics such as marriage, gun violence, religion, and cake, highlights a perspective not often discussed.

She has worked with Linda Belt, Lisa Landry, and Donnie Baker to name a few.

Carla performs in clubs, casinos, prisons, and USO shows throughout the midwest. She is hilarious, relatable, and unexpected. Expect it!

Joe Deez is a globally recognized comedian and a Fort Wayne native. As a child of a broken, low-income family environment he turned to comedy to overcome the obstacles and challenges that came his way. He is the founder and creator of Humor Association! and its course curriculum. Joe has appeared at major comedy clubs in New York City and all across the Midwest. He has appeared on Right This Minute, Break.com and has worked for Chortle in The United Kingdom.
