This week we're doing something a little different. With the tragic events that have recently unfolded in Haiti, there's been an amazing outpouring from entertainers of all kinds, and comedians are certainly no exception. So, in the interest of mobilizing you folks out there who need a little motivation to donate, here's a list of shows that will benefit you and Haiti at the same time. Like Mark Vonnegut said to his humanist father, Kurt Vonnegut: "We are here to help each other get through this thing, whatever it is."

If you know of any more comedy shows for the Haiti cause, please post them in the comments section. Thanks a million.

MONDAY 1/25

Love & Haiti, 9p Largo. Some great headliners (Sarah Silverman and Aziz Ansari are rumored) doing stand up, maybe some characters, anything they can to raise money.

TUESDAY 1/26

Comedy Death Ray, 8:30p UCB. Not only is this always an amazing show, UCB is accepting donations all week so give, give, give!
