Crazy Jay Bird Presents Rocking Comedy Show Celebrity Charity Go Kart Race on Dec 9th

Want to go go go with your favorite celebrities? Join Crazy Jay Bird and his friends for the 5th Annual Rocking Comedy Show Celebrity Charity Go Kart Race. The event begins at 1 pm on Monday, December 9th.

This is not the kind of event that can be held just anywhere so get your racing outfit on and come out to Fast Lap at 4288 Polaris Avenue in Las Vegas. Proceeds from this year's event will help to save Desert tortoise wildlife. Fair enough, some wild races to benefit wildlife.

Races start at $25, but Fast Lap has packages available as well. This reporter was curious. Why Go Karting? “It's a fun way to raise money and the Rocking Comedy Show is all about having fun, “ Crazy Jay Bird said.

CJB told me that, “This is not just go kart racing. The event starts at 1 p.m. But goes late with live music, food, and the best part is while you are there, local celebrities will also be on the track racing with you.” According to Crazy Jay Bird, we just might see the likes of Anthony Cools, Paul Shortino, or Carrot Top. In his own words, CJB told me, “You just never know who is going to show up, and sometimes just watching the celebrities race is just good fun!”

In the past, celebrities attending have included Frank Scinta, Anthony Cools, Murrary Sawchuck, Kevin Lepine, Mike Hammer, and Ricardo Laguna, so it just really matters who is free that day and when you come down. Crazy Jay Bird emphasized that no experience is necessary and enthusiastically said, “From your first run to your 100th, once you hit the gas, the fun begins!”

Hmm, I wondered, is this a guy's sport? Nope! Adult film star Sunset Thomas and the former Miss Nevada Jessica Hinton have been among the racers.

This is the 5th annual event so I asked about other charities. “This is our 5th Go Kart Race, and every year we pick a charity we want to help.” CJB said. “Last Year we helped PAWS.org (people animal wellness services). They help families with medical needs with their pets. The year before we raised money for a school that was going to lose their music program and one of my co-hosts at the time taught music there and we raised enough money to keep it around a few more years.:

“In addition”, he said, “We have raised food with Three Square, and helped get clothes and things for the Las Vegas Homeless Shelter. This year I was shocked and outraged to find out about the plan to kill off thousands of Desert Tortoise and me being an animal lover, and having one of my own, I knew this is where the go kart race had to help out this year.”

Help the wildlife, meet some celebrities, and have your own wild ride while enjoying music, food, and lots of fun.

The 31st annual AVN Awards Show will be hosted by Chanel Preston and Wicked Pictures contract star Samantha Saint. Dubbed "the Oscars of adult entertainment” by Entertainment Weekly, the must-attend, must-see event features the hottest stars from adult and mainstream pop culture. With a stylish red carpet pre-show and lavish star-studded ceremony, the AVN Awards celebrates outstanding achievements in the world of adult entertainment.
 
The AVN Awards will take place at The Joint, inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Saturday, January 18, 2014.
 
Over the years, the AVN Awards have become a famous staple in Las Vegas, housed in almost every major hotel on the strip. The show has grown drastically since it's beginning in 1984 and is now broadcast each year on cable to millions of viewers. The show allows adult and mainstream celebrities to come together once a year to celebrate the achievements of one of the world’s most profitable industries.
 
In 2012, the AVN Awards took up residence in The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and will return for a third straight year in 2014.
 
I have attended these awards and can say from personal experience that they are unique.  There are many catagories which I can not even print on a kid friendly site.  The industry members take it seriously and want to win, but there is a sense of humor and fun flowing through the proceedings.  It's a great chance for fans to see their favorites who may be famous for their sixty-nines in a venue where they are dresesd to the nines.
