Scenes from NYC comedy benefits for Haiti, links to upcoming L.A. comedy benefits

I've been getting more emails regarding comedy benefits for Haiti this week, so I thought I'd try to give you an update on some shows that have happened in NYC in the past few nights, as well as links to upcoming shows in and around Los Angeles.

NYC recaps

Spin magazine attended the Brooklyn Vegan-produced benefit in Williamsburg last weekend that featured several musical acts, plus Zach Galifianakis and Janeane Garofalo; Black Book magazine checked in and out of the benefit at the Bell House in Brooklyn's Gowanus/Park Slope neighborhood hosted by Todd Barry with many music and comedy acts; Carolines and Power 105.1 FM have many snaps from their benefit; and The Huffington Post recapped last night's show at Comix, with photo sets from Mindy Tucker as well as Kirill Was Here.
