It's almost Christmas time, which means any comedy show worth its salt has started pushing in a more charitable direction, and this week is no exception. Comicthon kicks off tonight at the Laugh Factory, with proceeds benefitting the Children's Hospital of LA, while Room 101 is helping fight autism. Know of any other upcoming benefit shows? Send 'em my way!

UPDATE: Don't forget to check out all the wonderful stuff that Comedy Death Ray is doing for the holiday season!


Standing on Ceremony, 8p Largo. A night of funny, insightful plays about gay marriage. Money raised is going to support the American Foundation for Equal Rights. Kathy Najimy, Bruce Vilanch, Neil LaBute and a number of others offer their services.

Comicthon, 8p Laugh Factory. While attempting to break the world record for longest stand up comedy show, the Laugh Factory will be accepting toy donations instead of tickets for the Children’s Hospital of LA. It’s going 24/7 for a few days, but expect to se Tim Allen, Dane Cook, Kevin Nealon, Bob Saget, Sarah Silverman and more.
