Comic Cure’s second-annual Brickell Comedy Festival will arrive early this year, in time for a Breast Cancer Awareness Month tribute as well as some presidential humor. The two-part night opens with “Comedy for a Cure,” showcasing comedians with personal ties to breast cancer and giving local cancer organizations a chance to raise some money. Next is “Make America Laugh Again,” a roast of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton featuring local politicians and civic leaders alongside the comedians. Comic Cure managing director Benjamin Leis says he wanted “a number of different voices from our diverse community” — and he’ll make sure the political folks’ jokes are up to snuff too. “Everyone is just exhausted and really emotionally charged from this campaign season,” he says, and this is the chance to convert some of that political angst into laughs. The headliner for both shows is Kira Soltanovich, of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, who Leis says “left people crying” at Florida’s Funniest Female this past May. The Brickell Comedy Festival kicks off Tuesday at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6) at Flamingo Theater at Four Ambassadors (801 Brickell Bay Dr., Miami). Ages 18 and up are welcome. Admission for each show costs $25 in advance, $15 for students, and $35 at the door plus a two-item minimum. Visit comiccure.com.
