Poe started out as a comedian, and has found that his love for entertaining people can be used to empower them as well. That’s why Poe started Smokedown and it is what led to his decision to run for Philadelphia City Council. Join Poe in his native habitat tonight, using comedy for good, at Underground Arts as he hosts a comedy fundraiser to benefit the Eli Matthews Foundation. Eli was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at the age of 6, fighting the disease bravely through multiple remissions until he died on January 20, 2011, at the age of 10. The foundation funds research into a cure for ALL.
