Do This: Reno 911! Benefit Show! Tonight!

You will be doing yourself a very large disservice if you don't get your ass over to Largo tonight to check out the Reno 911! Benefit Show, to raise money for Planting Peace, a charity that works to help children in impoverished nations. Every member of the show, including Tom Lennon, Joe Lo Truglio and Ian Roberts, will be sharing stage time with a roll call list of the greatest class clowns you'd kill to have in homeroom. Rob Heubel and Paul Scheer from MTV's Human Giant, Andy Daly (the principal on Eastbound and Down), Nick Kroll, Matt Besser and Matt Walsh (founders of Upright Citizens Brigade theatre) Nick Swardson, and even Rainn Wilson, to NAME JUST A FEW.
Tickets are $40, but worth the price of admission for this incredible line-up, especially when you know the money is going to a good cause. This is the change Obama was talking about, people. Well, sort of. I mean, it's cool to be a little selfish when you donate your money, right? I sure hope so, because if not I'm going to feel bad about laughing so goddamn hard at this show tonight. And hey, at least you can't accuse us of not giving proper notice to awesome events before they happen. You've been warned.
Reno 911! Benefit Show begins at 8p, at 366 N. La Cienega Blvd., L.A., CA 90048
