We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Hunger is no laughing matter -- but addressing it can be.

On Wednesday, April 1, the Wiseguys Comedy Cafe location in West Valley (3500 S. 2200 West) will host a special "Night of Fools" event in support of Utah Food Bank. Wiseguys impressario Keith Stubbs (pictured) will be part of a lineup of local comedians that will also include Last Comic Standing and City Weekly cover story veteran Marcus, Spencer King and hypnotist Rodney Norman.

And how much will it cost you to enjoy this talent-laden all-ages show? Just a bag of non-perishable food to donate to the Utah Food Bank, or a monetary donation. Doors at 6 p.m., show at 7 p.m. Be there with bag in hand.
