The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Don't say we don't do anything for you. A few years back Comedy Central teamed Amy Sedaris with Stephen Colbert and created the totally hilarious and ridiculous spoof of after-school specials, "Strangers with Candy".

The tv series lasted three seasons, and all of the episodes (six dvds worth) are being released by Comedy Central to support the film "Strangers With Candy" -- of which, LA, there will be a special sneak screening tonight at the Egyptian at 7:30p as part of Outfest.

LAist happens to have two sets of the DVD box set that we will give away to two lucky winners.
