Roxanna Ward, Richard Ryder, Dana Austin and bad grandma Vickie Shaw brought the laughs – and the sweat, songs and Bush quips – to the 12th annual ComedyFest on Saturday at Dearborn’s Ford Community & Performing Arts Center. The 6 and 9:30 p.m. pirate-theme shows, an annual fundraiser for Triangle Foundation, drew over 1,500 people, according to Chene Koppitz, director of community events for the organization. Ward, who received a standing ovation along with Shaw, parodied songs on the piano, while Austin made a political endorsement for Hillary Clinton, Richard Ryder joked about his persistent perspiration and Shaw confessed her secret to raising a good grandbaby: Give her Benadryl.
