Comics Make Sure Children’s Rights Gala Is Strictly for Adults

Raunchy comedy helps raise coin for org

The May 30 fundraiser for the Alliance for Children’s Rights was strictly for adults, thanks to a number of comics, most of whom were in top form at the Avalon Hollywood.

Craig Ferguson opened the night, quickly establishing a carefree, raunchy tone. “I’m gonna say fuck, but that’s nothing,” he pointed out in his thick Scottish accent. “You’re getting Bob Saget later. Saget!”

And Saget didn’t fall short of the hype. “I’ve been circumcised nine times. Enjoy the calamari,” he cracked. “That’s the joke!”

George Lopez went even further, skewering the attendees themselves. “Give yourselves a round of applause, white people,” he said. “That’s why you’re here. That’s why you drive hybrids.”

Wanda Sykes doled out a little satire of her own, discussing her own white kids who don’t look like most other celebs’ adopted children: “Madonna, Angelina — they took all the brown and black babies!” She went on to comment, “When you have kids, it’s like hiring an interior designer to just fuck your house up.”

Finally, Nick Kroll rounded out the night with a long scatalogical anecdote that had some audience members running for the exits prematurely.
