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.
