Brain injury survivor and inspirational comedian, Hugh Chatfield, to host “Inspiration for Injured Service Members & Veterans” at Gotham Comedy Club’s Vintage Lounge on January 26, 2010, supported by nationally-recognized and sought-after comedian, Bob Marley, and USMC Vet, funnyman George Hamm.

(PRWEB) January 15, 2010 -- Brain injury survivor and inspirational comedian, Hugh Chatfield, will host “Inspiration for Injured Service Members & Veterans” in Gotham Comedy Club’s Vintage Lounge on January 26, 2010, supported by nationally-recognized and sought-after comedian, Bob Marley, and USMC Vet, funnyman George Hamm.

According to Chatfield, “I was inspired to host this event when I read that up to 360,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans may have suffered brain injuries.” Chatfield’s first performance for injured veterans was an inspirational comedy set at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C. on October 19 of last year. He adds, “After the set, an injured Specialist hugged me and told me that I had given him renewed vigor to continue to get better and heal. Realizing I’d had a positive effect on one veteran gave me the inspiration to continue performing for other veterans.”

Chatfield, 49, sustained a traumatic brain injury in a car crash in 1987 while driving to an audition in L.A. The crash left him comatose; he awoke, eighty days later, unable to move or speak. Faced with a long and uncertain recovery, Chatfield chose humor to get him through his many years of rehabilitation. When he began cracking jokes in speech therapy, his speech pathologist suggested stand-up; he took to the stage and never looked back.

Inspiration for Injured Service Members & Veterans will be held January 26, 2010 from 7:30pm - 8:30pm at Gotham Comedy Club’s Vintage Lounge, 208 West 23r
