While domestic violence is no laughing matter, audiences started laughing for a good cause on August 13 when comedian and host of The Happy Never After Podcast Mara Marek launched her “Bike, Laugh, Heal” tour. The bike/comedy tour aims to benefit local women’s shelters in the cities where Marek performs. Marek hopes to develop programs for survivors to become re-established with employment. She also wants to empower them with fitness tools and programs for a successful future post tour. Further, Mara hopes to secure grant funding to help sustain shelters on the brink of closure.
Marek, creator and star of the popular Happy Never After podcast, is herself a survivor of abuse. Joining her in various cities on the cross-country bike and comedy tour will be her podcast partner, Andrew Collin. Andrew is a fellow comedian and regular guest on the XM Radio Show, “You Up w/Nikki Glaser”.
