The deadly superstorm known as Sandy is no laughing matter -- but Dane Cook is hoping a little humor can help.
The comedian is mounting a comedy benefit for the storm's victims at legendary Hollywood comedy club The Laugh Factory on Sat., Nov. 11 at 8 p.m.
Audience members will be required to make a mininum $25 donation to the Red Cross, or bring supplies like blankets, canned foods and heaters.
“I am saddened by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and am looking forward to raising money for those in need,” Cook says in a statement.
Besides Dane, scheduled to perform are Sunda Croonquist, James Harris, Erik Griffin, Dom Irrera, Tom Dreesen and Jeremy Hotz. Staffers from the Laugh Factory and Red Cross will be at the Hollywood club all day to collect donations.
