Using laughter to cope, connect. Since Richie King was a teenager growing up in Jamesport, he’s gotten a kick out of making people laugh. Now, as a disabled veteran who considers himself a professional comedian, he’s hoping to save lives by being funny. As a member of Comedy Vets, Richie will be appearing at Cameron at The Old School (116 West 4th Street) on Friday, Oct. 26. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Ticket proceeds go to support Veteran Suicide Prevention Programs.

“Thirty-five veterans a day commit suicide,” Richie says. “That’s an astonishing number. By the end of the year, that’s over 12,000 people. Imagine the population of Chillicothe, just wiped out. We want to get rid of that terrible number.” Richie wants to see the number of veterans suicides diminish to zero; instead, suicides are on the increase. A recent Veteran’s Administration study reports that 22 veterans enrolled in VA programs commit suicide each day. When adding vets not enrolled in VA, the rate is closer to 35 veteran suicides per day.
