Comedy BeCAUSE 2017

Come join us for a night of laughter and fun!

Comedy beCAUSE, The Center for Children and Families’ annual fundraising event, is coming up on Saturday, April 8th, 2017 at the Alberta Bair Theater! Some of the funniest people in Montana, and the United States, have graced the stage at the ABT over the last six years to help us raise the money we need to help families in our community rewrite their stories, empowering themselves and our community at the same time!

Tickets to Comedy beCAUSE 2017 are $36.50 and can be purchased by calling the Alberta Bair Theater box office at (406) 256-6052, or by visiting their web site at www.albertabairtheater.org.

As always, we are also offering a Pre-Show Party! This year, our party will be taking place at G&G Advertising, on the second floor at 2804 3rd Avenue North, directly across from the ABT! Tickets for the party are $20. The party will feature a raffle, live music, delicious food and more!

About Our Headliner – Jeff Dye!

We are THRILLED to have the hilarious Jeff Dye headlining the event this year! Jeff Dye is one of the stars of NBC’s comedy/adventure/reality show “Better Late Than Never,” which also stars William Shatner, Henry Winkler, George Forman and Terry Bradshaw. He has also been featured on that network’s “alternative” comedy variety hit series “I Can Do That.”  Jeff is, according to his biography,  a “nationally touring comedian, actor, host, prankster and Bigfoot enthusiast.” Hailing from Seattle, Jeff started doing comedy right out of high school, and was just three years into his comedy career when he placed third on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”

Since then, Jeff has been featured in his very own Comedy Central Presents special, appeared on MTV shows “Money From Strangers” and “Numbnuts,” and costarred in numerous other TV projects, including “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and “Girl Code.”  Jeff’s passion is to bring ” love and positivity through laughter to everyone he encounters” and he has been a public speaker at many different types of events, inspiring and educating, for several years.


Plus, we will be joined by some local favorites!

From the second Cody Sutton steps on stage, you feel like you have met him before. He has a likeability about him that makes you feel like he is having a fun conversation with you, rather than putting on a performance. He has performed in several different cities, brightening up people’s days along the way. He is not afraid to make fun of himself or laugh at his own shortcomings. He won the 2014 Montana Comedy Competition and was selected to perform in the International Big Sky Competition for his efforts. Cody is a must-see act and will be for years to come!



Mark Dawson’s brand of clean, intelligent, genuinely humble humor is popular with people of all walks of life! He’s fond of saying “I’m not funny, LIFE is funny!” He came onto the comedy scene in 2011 by winning the Montana Comedy contest after taking the stage just a few times. Billings native Lukas Seely arranged for Dawson to open for dozens of national headliners. Louie Anderson saw Dawson perform in 2012 and offered to mentor him. The two struck up a friendship, and Dawson has opened for Anderson both on tour and at Anderson’s venue in Las Vegas. Mark has been one of the driving forces behind Comedy beCAUSE since the beginning!
