Only a few tickets were left Tuesday for the Raise the Woof Comedy Show taking place Saturday in Shady’s Restaurant & Lounge in the Gladstone Inn & Suites.

The comedy show is a  fundraiser for Prairie Paws Rescue. Kaye John, president and cofounder of Prairie Paws, said the animal rescue switches between Raise the Woof and Pawsta Palooza as its main fundraisers.

Raise the Woof Comedy Show was founded by comedian James Uloth. The comedy tour features three comedians who perform and raise money for organizations.

“Last time we had them here, they raised $10,000 for us,” John said.

In addition to performances  by Uloth and comedians Rick Logan and Andrew Wegleitner, John said there will be raffles and silent auctions.

John said tickets are $15 in advance, but there were eight tickets left as of Tuesday morning.

“We keep the tickets at 200 and this show usually sells out,” she said. Any tickets not sold as of Saturday will be sold at the door. The show is for people 21 years and older.

In addition to the raffles and silent auction, John said there will be two quick raffles with the prizes being a trip to Medora and a trip to Deadwood, S.D.

Currently, Prairie Paws Rescue has 21 dogs and cats, two guinea pigs and some fish. John said last year the animal rescue adopted out some 102 animals.

The doors open at 7 p.m. with the comedy show starting at 8 p.m.
