Comedy For A Cause will be a Star-Studded Standup Comedy Show and Live Auction benefiting New York City Public Elementary School PS11 : The William T Harris School, located right here in Chelsea. The show will feature Dave Attell, W. Kamau Bell, Ray Ellin, Susie Essman, Judy Gold, Gilbert Gottfried, and Artie Lange.

GA: Includes 2 beverages, tax and gratuity.

VIP: Includes preferred seating, 1 hour pre-show cocktail party, open bar throughout comedy show, tax and gratuity.

PS 11 lost its Title One status this year, thus losing $300,000 in Department of Education funding.  Because of this loss, the PS 11 PTA is responsible for raising $500,000 this year! 

State and City budgets are based on minimal standards.  All of the important enrichment activities are paid for by the PTA funds. These include Art, Music, Dance, Computers, Math & Literacy Development, Staff Development and many more invaluable programs. 



Venue Description: Voted top-rated comedy club by the Daily News and best comedy club in NYC by NY Press. Emerged as NY's premier comedy venue. Legends like Jerry Seinfeld are known to drop in on this upscale yet intimate setting.
