Fred Armisen, Regina Spektor and More: Benefit for West Africa Relief

by Mariana Garces

Comedians Jena Friedman and Greg Barris have put together a crazy-good lineup of New York musicians, stand-up comedians and more, all to benefit Doctors Without Borders (proceeds go to MSF International, Medecins Sans Frontieres) to help fight Ebola

The show, at Irving Plaza (NYC, 6:30 PM) Nov. 19, will feature big names like Fred Armisen (Portlandia), David Cross (Arrested Development), Jim Gaffigan (Food: A Love Story), Janeane Garofalo, Ted Leo (Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, The Both), Regina Spektor (What We Saw From the Cheap Seats) and Jack Dishel (Only Son, The Moldy Peaches), and Ira Glass (This American Life). Phew! That’s a lot of stars! And they’re all in one place for a good cause.

Tickets are $60 and on sale now– so get them while you can here! If you can’t make it, help by donating to MSF here.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We previously reported that Hannibal Buress will participate in the event, but this has since change.
