Sit Down, Stand Up for a Good Cause

For once, we're not kidding around. Well, sort of.



    Under the Tucson Sun
    Okay drink away ... just don't get obnoxious.

    Sometimes you just have to laugh in poverty's face. Well, sort of. So why not stand up for a good cause while watching stand-up comedy? (See how it all just fits together?) Proceeds from Saturday's Comedy for a Cause go toward the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington's efforts to help community members in need.

    The night kicks off at at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue (600 I St. NW). "Last Comic Standing"'s Dan Naturman serves as the opening act; featured guest Orny Adams hails from the Jerry Seinfeld documentary  "Comedian."

    After the show, head to Muse (717 6th St. NW) -- they'll have a floor closed off for the Comedy for a Cause after-party. Show your ticket and your cover is free. OK, so drinks aren't free, but a percentage of the proceeds from the bar benefit the cause as well. 

    Tickets vary from $25 to $50 and include an exclusive meet and greet opportunity.

    Doors 9:30 p.m., show 10:15 p.m., cash bar until 11:30 p.m.
