Now is that part of the day where you’re fully woken up, done lying to yourself about any work you’re “getting done”, and looking for something to get out and do with yourself tonight. Well, TWENTYWONDER has come along to fill that gap in amazing fashion, and for a good cause no less!

TWENTYWONDER is part mind-bender, part charity, part science, part comedy... Well, to be fair, you should add a ‘y’ to the beginning of each of those: it’s part(y) mind-bender, part(y) charity... you get the idea. Starting at 6pm at the Veteran’s Memorial Building (4117 Overland Ave) in Culver City, you can catch Funny or Die clips, vintage Warner Brothers cartoons, discussions with an entomologist, a craft sale, some kids singing, a crazy walk-through environment, and something called ‘a monozygotic experiment of telepathic conveyance’. Cripes!

There’s also some top notch comedy available, with Dana Gould, Sarah Silverman, and Cinematic Titanic in attendance. Side note: isn’t Sarah Silverman the nicest person in the world? That girl seriously does every benefit you see. Anyways, you can round out the night finger-pushing some hot jamz on the Mega RockBand until it becomes Sunday morning, and all to support local folks born with Down Syndrome. This is the sort of local sourcing that charities have been turning to in abundance, allowing the locally-raised money ($50 minimum donation amount per person) to stay in the area and help folks in the neighborhood.

TWENTYWONDER is a one-night ‘world’s fair’ that deserves a great turnout, and by all accounts should get one. Based on previous years’ SUPERBALL (the brainchild of MST3K’s Joel Hodgson and his brother Jim), you should know that there will be plenty of comedy nerds, tech nerds, nerd nerds, celebrities, and outrageous people in Culver City tonight, and you should join them. Oh, the Batmobile will be there too. You know, because why not? Tickets are 21 and over only, so leave the kids with a stranger and get on out to TWENTYWONDER.
