Wow — look at this unbelievable comedy lineup: Elayne Boosler, Jeff Garlin, Kevin James, Carol Leifer, Jay Leno, Larry Miller, Ray Romano, Kevin Nealon, Dom Irrera, Norm Crosby, Shelley Berman, Jay L eno and Fred Willard , plus others surprises. If you think it's a benefit, you're right. Fellow comic Max Alexander is in serious need of funds for medical bills for his recent kidney transplant, and these high-powered funny pros have come together for Comedy to the Max: A Benefit for Comedian Max Alexander . Ms. Leifer doesn't perform live all that much (too snooty), but she's some killer hilarious lines. Such as? “Whenever I travel I like to keep the seat next to me empty. I found a great way to do it. When someone walks down the aisle and says to you, “Is someone sitting there?” Just say, “No one — except the Lord.'”
