Seats are still available for all four shows of Parlor-Palooza 2009 this weekend. This two-day marathon features over two dozen of LA's finest and funniest! Each show will be different and features 6 different 15-minute acts. Artists will be donating their time and talent, with all profits going toward the completion of a documentary film (Leave Them Laughing) by Academy Award-winning filmmaker John Zaritsky about Carla Zilbersmith - a single mom, jazz singer/ comedian/ former theatre professor with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). The goal of the film is to show how one can live life to the fullest under the most challenging of circumstances. Preview Leave Them Laughing, at www.leavethemlaughingfilm.com .
Some of LA's most beloved comics, humorists and cabaret artists (listed in yellow box below) have signed on - please join us. I promise you'll leave laughing, too!
