What more do you need to know to attend "Jenny Slate & Very Special Guests, A Benefit for Hurricane Sandy Relief"? How about this? "The show will be very exciting: stand-up comedy, some music, maybe even a little dancing too! It's a Christmas-y show, but since I'm Jewish, it's Christmas my way, which means red and green and general party time," Slate tells us. The former Saturday Night Live star and creator of the genius Marcel the Shell With Shoes On adds, "Guests that I can talk about are Jon Daly, Gabe Liedman, Kurt Braunohler my comedy partner from NYC; check out our Bestie X Bestie vids on Vimeo plus some secret guests who are too secret to say. Everyone on this show is either from the East Coast originally or has lived there for a long time. There's a big mess out there, and a bunch of awesome shitheads are getting onstage to help clean it up. Many people lost everything, and this is a positive, fun effort to help make it easier for our friends back east. Plus, as I said, I'm a Jew, and I'll be singing my first public Christmas song ever. Who doesn't want to see that? My mom and nana." Largo at the Coronet, 366 N. La Cienega Blvd.; Thurs., Dec. 13, 8 p.m.; $30. (310) 855-0350.
