Comedian Quincy Jones: 'There is no cancer when I'm on that stage'

by Darby Maloney and Elizabeth Nonemaker | The Frame 

On July 3, 2015, L.A.-based comedian Quincy Jones received the kind of phone call that many of us have nightmares about: he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given about a year to live. 

Jones has been going through chemotherapy, but he's also embarked on another journey: he wants to tape an hour-long special of his standup comedy, explaining that "would be [his] opus."

Friend and fellow comedian Nicole Blaine volunteered to produce it along with her husband, Mickey Blain, and to help with the production costs they started a Kickstarter campaign. Their projected goal was $4,985. To date, with 21 days left in the campaign, they've already received pledges exceeding $35,000.
