North Whatcom County Relay for Life (NWCRL) and the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds are bringing a dynamic show to Whatcom county. 

The Boob Tour was started in 2007 by James Uloth who sold shirts and bumper stickers to raise awareness about breast cancer. He added the standup comedy tour in 2010 with the aim of making people laugh for the cure and said, “This wild show is like no other and comes with the ‘breast’ of intentions.” 

“We hope that it provokes a little giggle when people see the poster. After all, that is the point,” said Tami Anderson, 2013 NWCRL chair. “Our goal at relay is to create a place of comfort, support and a sense of family. By bringing The Boob Tour to town, we are offering those who need it a place to laugh and have a good time. Cancer not only affects those going through it, it affects their family, friends, caregivers and even strangers. This event is for everyone in our community to gather together for a good cause. We are doing this not only to raise funds for a worthy cause, but to have a good time.”

NWCRL is the only organization bringing this tour to western Washington so don’t miss this opportunity. The comedians volunteer their time and all proceeds from the show go to support the benefit. While the show features clean humor, it is recommended for children ages 16 and older because of the topic.
