Tonight, Causecast.org and Ben Morrison (LAist interview) host "A Cause for Comedy" at the Hollywood Improv. This is the first show in a monthly series which will raise money for local charities. LA's own Project Angel Food (volunteer opportunities) is the first beneficiary. 100% of the proceeds will go to the organization dedicated to providing home cooked meals to those suffering from HIV, AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. As the video below shows, the impact of these services goes beyond just nourishing these people back to health; the customized food deliveries help to instill a genuine sense of hope and caring.

Ben Morrison hosts and the lineup includes Ahmed Ahmed, Bret Ernst, Iliza Shlesinger and Kate Micucci. Those too lazy or living too far to attend, you're in luck too. The event will broadcast live online and allow viewers to donate too.
