This weekend a very special, very weird event will take place at the DoubleTree in Bloomington, Minnesota: Die Laughing 2: Laugh Harder, a 50 hour comedy marathon fundraiser for Fearless Comedy Productions.
The Hubby and I attended last year’s Die Laughing fundraiser and had a pretty darn good time.
