About the Comedian:

Alan Goodwin

Allan Goodwin (a.k.a. “Badgerine”) connects with his audiences–getting them to appreciate the lighter side of their own lives relating his own experiences and observations.  Well known as the “Badgerine”—that ADHD Dyslexic Superhero comedian who sends audiences home with cheeks in pain from laughter—Allan Goodwin brings the “disorder” of ADHD into an entirely new light.    

A winner on America's Funniest People, Allan has been interviewed on The Billy Bush Show, and he has been seen in several PBS commercials.  Al regularly headlines comedy clubs, theaters, cruise lines, resorts and military bases, and also performs for large venues and corporate events.  He was featured on the national TV show LAUGHS on Fox, and was a 2014 Finalist and a 2015 First Place Satellite Winner in the  World Series of Comedy.  

Al was the host of the 2014 Television, Internet and Video Association (TIVA) Awards Gala at the National Press Club in Washington DC. He also represented the East Coast in the HBO's Lucky 21 Contest, a Las Vegas Comedy Competition. If you haven't experienced an Allan Goodwin show, put this on your “must do” list and bring some friends--because at an Allan Goodwin show ... laughter is always guaranteed.

About Comedy Night

Comedy Night originated as a twist on the traditional “Bowling for Rhinos” event that supports in-situ rhino conservation. The first ever Comedy Night featured Colorado native veterinarian and comedian Kevin Fitzgerald and raised $14,000!  Since 2000, Rocky Mountain AAZK has raised $54,912.56 for in-situ rhino conservation. As the years have passed, and our success has grown, Comedy Night now benefits a variety of projects including Denver Zoological Foundation conservation programs, the Snow Leopard Conservancy, the Kea Conservation Trust, The Prusten Project, the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance, and the Sea Turtle Survival Alliance. Comedy Night has become RMAAZK's largest fundraiser and we are extremely grateful to everyone who supports this event year after year!
