A Comedy Jam for an injured officer on Friday
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Corrections Officers are trying to help one of their own in a tough spot, with a bunch of laughs by hosting the Laugh Until You Turn Blue Benefit Comedy Show.
Officer Thomas Wells was riding his motorcycle in June when he was hit by a car.
Wells ended up in critical condition with a brain bleed and a fractured skull.
To make things worse, he had just started as a corrections officer, and he didn't have much paid accrued time off, according to Fraternal Order of Police President Tracy Dotson.
Wells has a young son and had just moved into a new home.
This coming Friday, the FOP is hosting a comedy show to help him out.
There are a number of comedians lined up including Misty Stine, Charlie Walker and Michie Mitch. The comedy jam will be hosted by UB Thomas.
Tickets are 10 dollars. The doors open at 8 at the FOP Lodge on Price Lane road.
