I know everybody’s doing what they can these days to help the people of Haiti, and that’s fantastic. Here’s another way, if you’ve got more bucks and want an entertaining bang: on Wednesday January 28, I’ll be performing at a benefit show at the ComedySportz Theatre in Hollywood. The show will go from 8 to 11 pm, more or less, and I’m scheduled to do a song or two in the first hour. A $10 donation gets you in, and you can stay for as much as you’d like. There will be improv from several LA-area groups, plus stand-up comedy and musical acts including, toward the end, the toe-tapping Dustbowl Cavaliers, friends of mine whose bluegrassy/country/rocky tunes will have you jumping in your seat. There will be wine, beer, baked goods and other stuff available for a donation, and a raffle! 100% of all proceeds go directly to two worthy Haitian projects.
Here’s an address that’ll get you directions to ComedySportz, which is at 733 N Seward St, Hollywood, 90038: http://www.comedysportzla.com/about/directions-and-parking.html
And this is kinda cool: if you’ve been thinking about buying or downloading my latest CD, Do Not Insert In Ear Canal, now’s the time to go fetch it at CDBaby.com, because the good folks there will donate $1 to the American Red Cross and to Mercy Corps for every CD sold/downloaded, thru February 8. You can find me on their website at http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/PhilWard.
Thanks, and let’s never forget how lucky we are!
