It’s not often that April Fool’s Day is celebrated outside the typical friendly pranks or mischievous stunts between friends and family.

This year, the trickster holiday will take on a new meaning, though, with Fools.Fur.Love., a comedy improv benefit for PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap.

“Ever since I moved to the island I’ve been amazed by the quality of care PAWS gives to those animals in need on the island,” said Chris Soldevilla, who will be the host for the evening.

“Laughter may be the best medicine, but not everything that needs fixing has a voice to ask. Every group involved in the show is excited to be performing for such a great cause,” Soldevilla said.

The event will showcase acts by the Studio Players, local teen troupe Not Applicable and Contagious who will be traveling from across the water in Seattle to infect Bainbridge Island with laughter.

Last but not least, the comedy improv wouldn’t be complete without The Edge.

“We are incredibly thankful to Chris and the other comedy players who will join together to tickle our funny bones on April Fool’s Day,” said Elizabeth Stevenson, Executive Director of PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap.

Funds raised for the show will help PAWs rescue and provide care for cats and kittens throughout Western Washington.

The comedy night will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 1 at the Island Music Guild.

All tickets will be sold online at and will be $35 for general admission and $20 for students. No tickets will be available at the door.
