Charity Auction for Alzheimer's Los Angeles with Greg Barris
Amoeba Hollywood - October 5th @ 4:00pm
Comedian Greg Barris is hosting a charity auction to benefit Alzheimer's Los Angeles at Amoeba Hollywood Saturday, October 5th at 4pm! We'll auction off a crazy array of collectibles, signed items, concert tickets, and other things you never knew you had to have.
Plus, Amoeba matches all winning bids up to $1,000, which means we'll double the money going to the Alzheimer's Los Angeles and their mission to provide FREE education and support services to families and caregivers who need it so desperately.
Greg Barris is an American Comedy Scene Darling and served as a staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene for years. A frequent Time Out New York Critic’s Pick, much loved by BrooklynVegan and hailed as "Excellent" by The New Yorker, Greg created and hosted the long-running Brooklyn comedy variety show "Heart of Darkness." Greg and guitarist / visual artist Dima Drjuchin (Corrupt Autopilot) teamed up to form the Wigmaker's Son. Together they created a Zappa-meets-Lonely Island pop fantasy comedy album, Greatest Tits which also featured friend Reggie Watts. Greg released his debut stand-up album Shame Wave on aspecialthing Records and will be releasing a new comedy album on the label in the near future.
