It’s official! Tig Notaro will be joined by Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho and speed painter extraordinaire, Amy Burkman, at 8pm, Sat., April 1 at Largo at the Coronet for Krullapalooza IV – the girl-power edition – which will benefit MOSTe, an amazing group that helps 250 girls in LA’s toughest neighborhoods to believe in their dreams and turn them into reality.

In underserved communities in Los Angeles, many girls struggle to feel like they have ANY power. They may have ambitions, but they don’t have peers and role models to help them buy into the belief that their dreams are achievable.

So thousands of girls who could do so much more settle for lives that don’t do justice to their potential, and the world loses the contributions they could have made.

MOSTe is an amazingly effective 30 year old mentoring and support group that gives emotional, academic and financial support to inner city girls to nurture and validate their ambitions and quite literally change the trajectories of their lives.

MOSTe is made up of a bare-bones staff and an army of volunteer mentors who work hand-in-hand with the girls every step of the way from their inner city middle schools through college. They are spectacularly effective at fulfilling their mission of making the world smarter, one girl at a time. As one of the girls said, MOSTe was “like a hand reaching out from heaven.”

But in today’s climate, where so many causes are competing for our limited resources, they need a financial boost to keep their mission alive.

Please come to this great show and/or donate and help an amazing cause!

Did Kate spawn Sarah?

Here’s how Us Weekly reported Kate Beckinsale’s recent funny Instagram exchange.

Nope, not me! Kate Beckinsale had a hilarious response to an Instagram commenter who mistook her for Sarah Silverman’s mother on Saturday, February 4.

While out to dinner at Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood, the Underworld actress, 43, shared a photo of herself with a group of A-list pals, including Molly Shannon, Lance Bass, JoAnna Garcia, Nick Swisher and Silverman, who confused one fan.

“That Sarah is your daughter? Pretty like you @katebeckinsale,” the Instagram user wrote. Rather than correcting the fan’s mistake, Beckinsale humorously replied, “Granddaughter. We are very proud of her.”

As (most) fans know, Silverman, 46, is currently dating Beckinsale’s ex-boyfriend Michael Sheen, which could explain why the commenter confused the comedian with the former couple’s 18-year-old daughter, Lily. Despite their mutual ties to Sheen, Beckinsale and Silverman have recently become close friends.

“I really love his girlfriend as well and we are lucky we both get on, and Lily gets on great with her,” the British actress told the London Evening Standard last December. “Having as many strong females in your teenage daughter’s life as possible is a good thing.”

Beckinsale and Sheen, 47, have also kept a close bond since their 2003 split. “We split up ages ago,” she told the newspaper. “We have been not together far longer than we were ever together. But I really love him and like him and we make each other roar with laughter.”

Roast battle has begun; watch Saturday

Last year viewers got to see Sarah fling her own insults as one of the judges on Jeff Ross’s Comedy Central contest show, Roast Battle. Well she’s back in season two, which began airing January 26.  January 28 is the episode that  features Sarah,
as explained in this recap.

HOLLYWOOD — John Mayer didn’t sign on to compete in Roast Battle, but that didn’t stop him from getting burned.

The singer serves as a celebrity judge, alongside Sarah Silverman, on Comedy Central’s diss-off tournament , Roast Battle II: War of the Words, airing Thursday through Sunday (10 ET/PT).  After Snoop Dogg, Anthony Jeselnik, Whitney Cummings and Ken Jeong pick winning comics in the first two episodes, Mayer and Silverman determine quarterfinalists Saturday, before Sunday’s live finale with Patton Oswalt, TJ Miller and Jason Sudeikis voting on a champion.

The show, presented by “Roastmaster” Jeff Ross, works this way: Comics battle in pairs to fire jokes at each other. After a few funny insults are dished — with interruptions from guerrilla comedy trio The Wave — Ross and celebrity judges choose which battler advances.

“This is a safe haven for free speech,” Ross warned the crowd this week at a  taping of Saturday’s episode. “Nothing is off limits.”

And so vulgar one-liners were delivered, even to the guests seated at the judges table. (Well, mostly to Mayer; the only dig about Silverman — that she’s all too familiar with “horse-face jokes” — came from her).

“In college, I would listen to your live recordings,” comedian Matthew Broussard told Mayer. What did he learn? That “you can be funny, while staying true to yourself as a cocky, pretentious douchebag.” The audience on the Sunset Strip howled at the joke.

Comedian Joe Dosch asked Mayer,  “Don’t you have to go sing for a pair of Ugg boots?”

Mayer laughed at the digs, and had a few witty retorts. When Ross asked why he’s working so hard, promising to continue releasing monthly installments of music, Mayer responded,  “Because I have a crippling void inside of me that will never be filled.”

Those jokes were no harsher than the regular competition insults: Olivia Grace compared another contestant to someone who watches the creepy dutch horror film The Human Centipede “from a technical standpoint,” and Frank Castillo joked that his opponent “could pass for a Trump: She’s got the body of Melania, the brains of Ivanka and her womb is Barron.”

But after four rounds of disses, it was time to make nice. Opponents hugged, Silverman embraced her comedy “family” and Mayer met with the comic who went at him hardest.

“Don’t forget: It’s a performance,” Mayer said after chatting backstage with Broussard, who happens to be a big fan, about the difference between performing comedy and playing live music. He wrote nine  comebacks for Broussard, he said, “but now the forum is over.”

Broussard agreed: “Saying it now would just be mean.”
