Fangzhou He is bringing his trademark combination of comedy and charity to the far North. He, currently touring B.C., will be in Fort Nelson to perform and raise funds for the family of Katie June.
June passed away in July at the age of 11, from Aplastic Anemia, a rare autoimmune disease.
"The family has gone through a very tough time, they couldn't work at times while June was being taken care of in Vancouver. This tour is all about showing support, and when I heard what happened to her and her family, I wanted to help and help them spread the word of this disease," He said.
He is donating a percentage of the proceeds from each show to a family or person in need in that town. He is known as the hitchhiking comedian, for his tendency to hitchhike from town to town during tours, and staying with families who would put him up.
"Families don't always have access to public funds, and so I just try to support people as much as I can. I used to just do a show and then leave the town, but after Covid and seeing families affected by it, I wanted to help give back to the communities and families who support me along the way," said He.
He will perform in Fort Nelson on September 24.
