Fun Lovers Unite! An Evening of Music, Comedy, And Gun Sense will benefit Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in American, a project of Everytown for Gun Safety, the country’s largest gun violence prevention organization. Each performer on the bill, as well as the venue itself, is donating the performance to this life-saving cause and is proud to stand with fellow comedians and musicians in solidarity to raise awareness for common sense gun violence prevention efforts and the elected officials who stand up for the safety of our communities.

The event is being produced by two friends on each of the coasts, Joshua Mills in Los Angeles and Maccabee Montandon in Brooklyn, who are both dads of young children who wanted to do something about the epidemic of gun violence in America. Montandon’s brother Asher was shot and killed during an attempted robbery in 1992.

“Music and comedy are powerful ways to reach people – we are so grateful to the performers who will use their talents to bring people together, educate them on the problem of gun violence and ask them to take action to save lives,” said Montandon. “Gun violence is often a hard issue to talk about –this event is a way to let people know we are all human, we can crack a few smiles while also trying to raise awareness for a serious issue. Fun Lovers Unite is just one example of the grassroots momentum across this country calling for gun sense.”

Sarah at Rogens’ Alzheimer’s benefit

Posted by Gator on October 18th, 2014

Seth Rogen and his wife, actress Lauren Miller, continued their ongoing campaign to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s research October 17 by holding a “Hilarity for Charity” 1980′s prom.  Sarah was among the many celebrities who attended.  One article described “Sarah Silverman (in a school girl outfit) talking about …divine ejaculation.”  Happy to have her attend, Rogen said, “I once smoked a joint with (Sarah) when I was 18 and bragged about it for the next 6 months.”

The article went on to say, unlike a typical ’80s prom, “this prom was 21+ only and had an open bar.”  Tickets to the sold-out event, held at the Hollywood Palladium, cost “from $1,000 down to $150 ‘get-in’ seats.”  

Lauren Miller’s mother has early-onset Alzheimer’s. Two years ago, Rogen and Miller started a foundation to work for this cause. $900,000 was reportedly raised at Friday night’s event.

Video: Sarah protests V-tax with sex change

Don’t miss Sarah’s new public service announcement concerning the gender gap!

Go here to see full credits for the PSA video.

UPDATE: This is what Sarah tweeted in response to the extensive online backlash about the video from the trans-gender community who accused Sarah of being  insensitive to their plight:

If I literally got a sex change I would indeed find the work force far less friendly. The video wasn’t transphobic it was transignorant – never crossed my mind. But to my *unintentional* credit- people are talking about it & so begins awareness. Please don’t punish this cause because of my video. I certainly don’t only fight for causes that concern or benefit me and I expect the same of the vital trans community.

Sarah looked relaxed as she arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on October 6, after a triumphant success hosting Saturday Night Live in New York. On Thursday (October 9) she is hosting a benefit at Largo.
