Comedy for Karma is pig approved
It’s that time of year again — when it’s appropriate to laugh out loud to help rescued farm animals. For the fourth year in a row, the “funny farm” is back with another installment of Comedy for Karma benefitting the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary (WFAS).
When: Tuesday, April 5, 2011. Doors at 7:30 pm. Show starts at 8 pm sharp.
Where: Gotham Comedy Club, 208 West 23rd Street between 7th & 8th Avenues in Manhattan.
The line-up of comedians includes:
Olivia Munn of The Daily Show & NBC’s Perfect Couples (if she is indeed still eating chicken, my money’s on WFAS co-founder Jenny Brown to get her to reconsider)
John Oliver & Wyatt Cenac of The Daily Show (note: both are tentative at this time)
Gary Gulman & Myq Kapla, both of whom were Last Comic Standing finalists
Jamie Kilstein of Showtime’s The Green Room
Dan Piraro, Bizarro creator and WFAS board member, will emcee. I, for one, cannot wait for his Viagra jokes that have ruffled some feathers at past WFAS Thanksliving events (and I’m not talking about the turkey feathers).
The funds raised will go directly to the care of over 200 rescued farm animals at the sanctuary and the advocacy work of WFAS. Here’s a video from last year’s show in case you still need convincing that this is an event you don’t want to miss.
