Saturday night my friends and I attended the highly entertaining fundraiser for A Better LA. A Better LA is a non-profit organization whose goal is to support Los Angeles communities to reduce violence by empowering change from within. It was night that had me in stitches and in tears.
Will Ferrell hosted the night of laughter and brought along his buddy John C. Reilly. They started out the night by performing their hilarious rap song from Step Brothers, “Boats N’ Hoe’s.” I think their version blows The Lonely Island’s, “I’m On a Boat” any day.
My favorite comedian for the night was probably Rob Riggle. I’ve seen him in many comedies, notably in The Hangover, but I’ve never really thought much of him but “that intense whacky character”. OMG, he had me laughing so hard I thought I was going to faint. Demetri Martin was another one that was pretty funny, especially when he picked up his guitar and harmonica and told jokes whilst strumming a pretty tune. Tenacious D capped off the night with a spectacular set. Jack Black is one underrated singer and Kyle Gass is one bad mofo guitar player! If you have a chance to see them, don’t miss out, it will be memorable.
