Big Name Comics Come Out for Charity Laughs

An all star line-up of top comics came together for “A Night of Comedy” benefiting OneKid OneWorld (www.onekidoneworld.org) at New York City’s famed music and entertainment venue The Cutting Room Wednesday night.  The two hour entertainment extravaganza, benefiting the organization’s ongoing efforts to build classrooms, provide desks and books, as well as fund teachers’ salaries providing a foundation for education in rural under-privileged areas of Kenya, was hosted by CHRISTIAN FINNEGAN (VH1’s Best Week Ever) and featured the comedic stylings of JANEANE GAROFALO ( “Wet Hot American Summer,” “24,” ); CAROLINE RHEA (“Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Two Broke Girls”); TODD BARRY (“Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Flight of the Conchords,” “Louie”); JUDAH FRIEDLANDER (“30 Rock”); SASHEER ZAMATA (“SNL”); and LANGSTON KERMAN (HBO’s “Insecure”).
