Fiscal Humor

Failure to file your income taxes is generally no laughing matter: Look no further than the plight of Wesley Snipes or Willie Nelson for proof of said statement. So, if you’ve endured through the annual onslaught of accountants, filing, and mailings, chances are good that you’re in need of some levity.

For relief, head to Power 98.3’s Comedy Slam: The Tax Day Edition on Friday, April 15, where stand-up stars Capone, D Lai, Marvin Dixon and Steve Brown will crack a few jokes at the economy’s expense. The combo of comedy and drinks is a worthy way to blow that tax refund or get your mind off how much you ended up owing Uncle Sam when all was said and done.
