Scott Aukerman (LAist Interview) and BJ Porter want to help feed hungry locals. To do so they’ve assembled a super-team of funny friends from their weekly stand-up show, Comedy Death-Ray, to help raise money for the LA FoodBank, an agency who will help 1.6 million LA Country residents this year.

There’s a Christmas CD, a big live show, and chances to win unique comedy experiences via eBay. Proceeds from all three will go to the LA FoodBank. A donation page is live for those who don’t like to laugh yet like to feed the hungry.

The Comedy Death-Ray Xmas CD 2010 features cuts like the above “We Are The World,” James Adomian’s “Huell The Howser Angels Sing,” and, of course, Myq Kaplan’s “How Hitler Saved Christmas.” On Tuesday December 14th, Comedy Death-Ray’s Annual Xmas Nativity Pageant goes down at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Hollywood. Announced performers are Sarah Silverman, Kevin Nealon, and Thomas Lennon.
