Standing up for kids

'A Night of Comedy' puts spotlight on cause

HOLLYWOOD — How will Ray Romano‘s sex life affect fund-raising for the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation? If the roars of laughter heard Saturday at the Wilshire Theater are any indication, the kids are in good hands.

Org held its fifth annual “A Night of Comedy” night with a strong lineup of standup pros: Romano, Bryan Callen, Sarah Silverman, Kevin James and George Lopez. Event drew 1,400 attendees and raised more than $200,000.

Silverman, who’s known to get downright bawdy in her act, toned it down just a notch but still delivered plenty of blue-tinged zingers. And Lopez felt right at home reminiscing about his abusive grandmother.

James has time to refine his act now that “The King of Queens” has wrapped after nine seasons. Talking about the bustling activity at airports, James quipped how those who take people-movers are the ones who should really be walking and getting exercise.

“People-movers should have an exit ramp right into the Cinnabon. This is your core audience.”
