What is the No Rest Foundation?
No Rest For The Wicked Funny is the incorporated 501(c)3 public charity branch of Improv Asylum. The mission of the organization is to improve our community as a whole in partnership with other non-profit organizations by using comedy to raise money for those who need it most.
*As of March 15, 2020, donations to NRWF, Inc. will be going towards comedians and actors that have put out of work because of state-wide shutdowns due to the Coronavirus.
And why is this man jumping in the ocean?
Improv Asylum co-founder Norm Laviolette has been dunking in the ocean for over 300 days!
In May of 2020, he vowed to dunk in the ocean every day until the clubs can reopen, so we’re counting down the days, mostly so Norm can go back to work and stop checking the tide schedules constantly. He continued to dunk daily for one year straight! Great job, Norm.
You can help by donating money to fund grants to performers and artists who have been out of work due to the pandemic. Donations of $50 or more and you can suggest a theme or costume, give a shout out to someone, or join Norm in a plunge!
