USE THE MOVIE TO PROMOTE THE HEALING POWER OF HUMOR AND AWARENESS OF
THE CHALLENGES FACING OUR WOUNDED WARRIORS

Take five wounded veterans and four top comedians, the result… laughter and the healing power of humor.



“Comedy Warriors” is an uplifting film that shows there’s another perspective from which to view life’s difficulties, and that is… humor. It’s a universal message that relates to many of our injured military, as well as all who have experienced hardships and trauma. In light of our mission to raise awareness and support the healing process of all individuals – we’ve partnered with a new kind of distribution company, which has created a model of people-powered distribution. Instead of just sharing the film because you are passionate about it (Which is fantastic!), you can now share it AND LASF gets rewarded for spreading word-of-mouth about this life-affirming film.
