Comedians Serve Up Free Christmas Meals

Comedians Serve Up Free Christmas Meals

Paul Rodriguez, Dane Cook, Paul Mooney, John Lovitz and other comedians dished out a free Christmas meal and a side of standup to more than a thousand people at a comedy club.
The slate of comedians performed for more than 1,400 people Monday at the Laugh Factory, said owner Jamie Masada.
Besides performing, Rodriguez was also tapped to carve a turkey.
"This really is my family," Rodriguez told KCBS-TV. "All these comedians you see out here, they might be very sarcastic on stage and say rude things, but deep down inside they are softies."
Masada described the event, which marked its 28th year, as a "little party" for those who have nowhere else to go on Christmas.
"They're down on their luck," he said. "We try to make them feel a bit better, we give them laughter."
