Please Support “Talking Animals” (& Me! ) During WMNF’s Summer Fund Drive July 9


I’m asking that you support “Talking Animals,” and me, in our Fund Drive show Wednesday, July 9, 9am-10am ET–but, ideally, BEFORE then!

As always, we have Exclusive Thank You Gifts for those who donate on behalf of “Talking Animals”

Like killer tickets to see the kickoff date of the Funny Or Die Oddball Festival (the line-up on this Tampa show includes Louis C.K., Marc Maron, Chris Hardwick & Aziz Ansari). The Talking Animals Anniversary Bash CD. A week’s stay in the incredibly fabulous Kauai condo. Copies of the book “Metal Cats.” Tickets to see Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe on the Fox series “24″) performing stand-up.  And more! Details below.

That hour of our fund drive show on July 9–from 9-10am that morning–is the only time our show will be “credited” with your donation.

If a pledge comes in afterward, it’s credited to another show,  but you can give beforehand… how ’bout now? Read more…
