With this lousy recession having some of us curled up in the fetal position trembling most Saturday nights (what? you too?), let's say to hell with it. I say get seven pals together to fork in for the "Yada Yada Yada Sponsorship Package" for The Los Angeles Guardians of the Jewish Home for the Aging Comedy Club 2009 Fundraiser. It's $4,500, but here's what you get: VIP seating for eight at the beautiful new Eli and Edythe Broad Theatre, limousine service for the evening, a pre-show reception, prominent placement of your company logo (or a Xeroxed picture of your ass) in the Playbill and a full page ad in the Guardian Magazine. The comedy lineup is terrific -- Andy Kindler, Shawn Pelofsky, Sarge (I'm Black, But God Knows I'm Jewish), Ray Jessel (he was the last lyricist to work with Richard Rodgers). You'll be benefitting a important cause. Of course, I'll be at Madeleine Peyroux on this particular night, benefitting another important cause: the Nokia's bar revenue.
