Are you a despicable, horrible person prone to obscenity and NSFW outbursts? Not afraid to be raunchy, politically incorrect and wildly inappropriate in a fairly public setting? Then this fundraiser’s for you.
On Friday, Durango Film will host its Show Me The Funny 2 fundraiser at Animas City Theatre, 128 E. College Dr., where the game “Cards Against Humanity” will be played on the big screen.
You play the game by completing fill-in-the-blank statements using phrases printed on playing cards – the more inappropriate the better.
“It’s very irreverent, it’s very politically incorrect,” said Joanie Fraughton, executive director for Durango Film. “It’s very raunchy.“
The game is played in the first 10 rounds, and the player who has the funniest answer and/or gets the most applause is the winner of that round.
The winners of each round then meet for the Battle Royale: The Durango-themed Round 11, where “no one is safe,” Fraughton said.
“It’s a just a fun thing that we did last year,” Fraughton said. “We need to let loose once in a while. You can be too serious with fundraising. This is just something fun we do ... come out and laugh with us.”
Warming up the audience the evening will be improv comedy presenting by Durango dot Comedy.
Appetizers from Hot Tomatoes and Nature’s Oasis will be available, as well as a cash bar for those who may need a little liquid courage in order to fill in those blanks like a boss.
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person, or $20 for students and are available at www.durangofilm.org. The evening is limited to 100 people, so get a move on and get your tickets before they’re gone.
Oh, and it’s one thing to say some awkward stuff while you’re playing; it’s another to actually BE awkward because you don’t know how to play. So don’t be a jerk: Check out the rules of “Cards Against Humanity” at www.cardsagainsthumanity.com.
