Stand-Ups For Kids
by Randall L. Whipkey
During this past weekend's Kid-A-Thon on WSUM-TV, five stand-up
comedians helped raise funds for Children's Hospital by doing comedy
routines on the telethon. Each of the five was sponsored by a
different local comedy venue--one by the Laughs Lounge--and each
did a different topical routine, with one joking about "Money, Money."
Given the comedy bill below, you should be able to solve this Logic
Puzzle--the order in which the five appeared on the Kid-A-Thon, each
comedian's full name, the comedy club he or she represented, and the
routine he or she did as a Stand-Up for Kids.
- Caesar appeared on the telethon immediately before Jerry did.
- Rosie, who wasn't the one who followed Tim's very tough act to
follow, didn't do her stand-up routine first on the program.
- The comedian who joked about being "Hopeless at Home" was on
the Kid-A-Thon earlier than the one sponsored by the Ho-Ho
House, while the latter appeared earlier than Burns.
- Winters' routine immediately followed Vanna's on the program.
- One stand-up's classic "Flying" routine immediately preceded
another's "Man Vs. Woman" on the telethon.
- Tim and Caesar frequently write jokes for each other.
- The comedian sponsored by the Comedy Cafe appeared immediately
ahead of Chris on the Kid-A-Thon.
- Vanna, who isn't Lewis, and the comedian representing the
Stand-Up On Stage incorporate funny voices in their acts.
- The stand-up comic who did the "Running for President" routine
was on stage immediately after Rosie.
- The venue that sponsored Gleason and the Funny Bone Bistro each
donated $2,500 to Children's Hospital in honor of their comedic
- Jerry and Winters answered the phones after doing their telethon
- Tim was on immediately ahead of the Stand-Up On Stage comedian,
who wasn't the one who was third to appear on the program.
- Burns' routine wasn't the "Running for President" one.
