LOS ANGELES, Calif. (CitizenWire) — Laugh for Love (www.LaughforLove.org), the group that unites comedians for causes, announced the line up of funnymen to perform this Thursday, February 17, 2011 at their charity fundraiser for the homeless at the world famous Comedy Store. Joey Medina (Latin Kings of Comedy), Chris Spencer (LOL Comedy: Showtime), Jay Malone (LOL Comedy: Showtime), and Chris D’ELia (Glory Daze) round out the diverse and hilarious cast. The group aims to raise awareness and funds for a heart felt cause.
100% of all ticket sales, donations and sponsorships are donated to the Los Angeles Mission (www.losangelesmission.org), a 501(c) non-profit organization serving the homeless for 75 years. Located in downtown Los Angeles’ skid row, it began as a small rescue mission and is now among the nations largest service providers to the homeless. The Los Angeles Mission continues to provide hot meals, safe shelter, clothing, personal care, and life transforming long-term rehabilitation to hungry, hurting, and homeless, men, women and children.
Laugh for Love attendees will also catch a sneak peek of “Venice Heat,” a hilarious single camera sitcom about beach cops, starring Academy Award winner Shirley Jones, directed by Scott White (Burn Notice, Without a Trace, CSI NY).
The shows creator T.J. Hoban says, “If Baywatch was having an affair with Reno 911, their love child would be Venice Heat.” If you’ve seen the trailer on YouTube, you know why.
