A former Wilmington resident and WECT employee is using her comedy connections to help people affected by Hurricane Florence.

Blaire Postman, a stand-up comedian and former WECT advertising executive, started Comedy Cares for Carolina, which helps comedians “adopt” charities in the Wilmington area.

Comics choose a charity and then share information about it on social media in hopes of getting people to donate money, time and/or supplies. 

The Good Shepherd Center, Nourish NC, Coastal Horizons, Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity, StepUp Wilmington, the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina and Cape Fear River Watch are some of the charities comedians have chosen. Pet rescue centers have also been picked.

Wilmington comedians like Drew Harrison, who was named Port City’s Top Comic in 2016, Brian Granger, the only two-time Port City’s Top Comic winner, Louis Bishop, Lew Morgante, and Wills Maxwell have all adopted charities as well as New York City-based headliner Aparna Nancherla.
