LA Comedians Support Katrina Relief

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The Woman's Club of Hollywood is sponsoring an event tonight, The Stand-Up Chicks, with proceeds benefiting Hurricane Katrina relief. The line-up of over 10 female comedians features Stephanie Whang, our friend Maia Madison singing "All The Good Men Are Gay," and other quirky and divine tidbits of the LA stand-up scene. This fundraiser, originally intended to help support the college fund of a graduating senior at Hollywood High School, has now been expanded to also send supplies to Katrina disaster victims. One night only.

You can stand up for stand-up tonight at 7 pm at the Woman's Club of Hollywood, 1749 N. La Brea Ave. Tickets are $15 and an additional $2 for drinks. RSVP online at this link or call (323) 876-8383. There is ample free parking behind the Woman's Club, and this also gives you a chance to see one of Hollywood's old institutions from the inside out.
