Burbank Film Festival, Flappers Comedy Club and Celebrities to Honor Purple Heart Recipient PFC T.J. Adams

BURBANK, CA August 14, 2011 from 9:00 pm to 11:00pm the Burbank Film Festival is hosting its 5th in a series of comedy film presentations at Flappers Comedy Club, located at the corner of First Street and Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank, CA.  In addition to one or more star comedians festival celebrity judges on hand shall be:  Larry Hankin (Seinfeld, Married with Children); Lisa K. Wyatt (The Suite Life on Deck, Legally Blonde); and, Siena Irwin (The Drew Carey Show, The Brave and the Bold).  But the true star of the evening is local son and former Burroughs High School student and football player T.J. Adams home on medical leave after having had his carotid artery sliced open by shrapnel from a rocker propelled grenade while engaged in a fire fight in Afghanistan.  He barely survived this life threatening wound but many of his comrades did not survive that day.  It is those men T.J. is most anxious to honor.  Flappers Comedy Club and Burbank International Film Festival have joined to make this wish come true.

“We are privileged and honored to be able to salute not only this brave soldier but his many friends who did not survive that bloody attack two months ago now.  We sincerely hope that the community shows its support by coming out for this very special event.”  Said Adrian Iniguez CEO of the Burbank International Film Festival.

Admission is only $12.00 and tickets may be purchased at the door on the evening of the show.  Information and reservations are available by calling Flappers at 818-845-9721.  Further information is also available on the film festival website at:
