The LOL-a-Thon, an annual stand up comedy event at Everett, kicked off its sixth year with a special guest, WLNS morning news anchor Evan Pinsonnault. The newsman kicked off the fundrasiser for The Voice by sharing behind-the-scenes stories of his time at Channel 6, and his dead-on Jerry Seinfeld impersonation.
“Thanks to my new buds at Everett high school for inviting me to the LOL-a-Thon event last night!” said Pinsonnault in a Tweet to The Viking Voice. “I had a ton of fun, too!”
The next morning, Pinsonnault gave Everett a shout-out in on the news, along with multiple mentions on Twitter and Facebook.
Along with Evan, there were also many current students, former students, and teachers. Performers included teachers Chad Sanders, Anne-Marie Vanderwarden, Jennifer Leroy, Joy Currie, and Brent Pohlonski; current students Almer Dzananovic and James Vandergrift; and former students Chris Fobbe and Vincent Mata.
The LOL-a-Thon is one of The Voice’s biggest fundraisers of the year. It’s done to raise money for the final issue that includes a senior issue pullout.
“I love going to the LOL-a-Thon because everyone is so funny,” said senior Jalen Hauser. “My favorite person has always been Vincent Mata, he’s fantastic.”
