Question: What do you call a Stand-Up Comedian who can’t stand up?
Answer: Mo Alexander
The reason why that joke is not funny is because it is not a joke.
A few weeks ago Mo Alexander aggravated an old foot injury and broke his right foot while badly straining the left one. He has been bedridden for several weeks due to his injuries and as of today, 4/2/15 he is being readmitted to a Memphis area hospital. At this point it appears that both feet have fractures and this will take him an extended period of recover time.
Mo earns his living traveling as a professional stand-up comedian. This is his career, not a hobby. Mo's comedic work has been his source of income for many years.
Mo will not be able to tour this spring and most likely this summer. This means Mo is losing wages every day he is off the road.
This Gofundme account is to help Mo meet his regular financial obligations in the coming months and pay for medical expenses he is accruing.
