All of us here at Musa Masala are always looking for exciting and different ways to help raise money for the Wongchu Sherpa Memorial Hospital and we think we have come up with one that will make you laugh.

Musa Masala presents our very first Comedy Jam. We’re calling it Comedy Jam Jam!! It will take place on Sunday, August 5th at Timpanogas Tavern in Heber City, Utah. We have two of the funniest people we could sneak out of the Denver comedy scene, Louis Beck and Steven Agyei. We are super thankful for Jacey at Timpanogas for making her place available to us.

The show will begin at 9:00pm on the opening day of the Wilderness Medical Society’s Summer Conference, held in Midway, which is only four miles from Timpanogas Tavern.

All of the proceeds will go to the WMS Wongchu Sherpa Memorial Hospital Fund. Please come out and support our cause and support live comedy. This is going to be awesome!!
