Deaf comedian C.J. Jones will perform Friday at Mason Middle School, 6370 Mason-Montgomery Road.
Jones, an internationally acclaimed comedian within the deaf community, will use a blend of visual imagery, comedy and storytelling combining voice, American Sign Language and mime in the 7 p.m. performance.
Members of Mason High School’s ASL Club petitioned local businesses for donations and held fundraisers to bring Jones to Mason as part of the club’s annual Deaf Awareness Week.
Our theme is ‘Famous Deaf People’ and we thought what better way to celebrate famous deaf people than have one come here,” said Jessica Cedrone, the club’s co-president and a fundraiser organizer.
Tickets are $15 at the door; the first 100 people will receive free tickets, thanks to a donation.
