Because, Apparently, We've Run out of Needy Children in This City (and Country)...

Tomorrow, you'll have an opportunity to help out a lot of poor, needy folk by exercising your democratic rights as an American. No, I'm not talking about supporting those poor, needy mayoral candidates. I'm talking about exercising your democratic right to laugh your ass off on behalf of some orphans.

Since everybody knows it's no fun to give money to charity and get nothing in return, the folks at a Sri Lankan orphanage called the Fridsro Project have organized a night of hilarity benefitting the kiddos featuring four of the very best comics in town. You'll know Kirk Smith from the Backdoor Comedy club, Aaron Aryunpur and Mark Agee from the Addison Improv and Hyena's, and Paul Varghese from season two of Last Comic Standing. Paul's also making his national television debut this summer on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, so you'll want to check him out live before he blows up (no, Paul, that's not a joke about your being brown.)

The show's at the MAC, and tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Do it for the kids.--Andrea Grimes
