The Laugh Factory opens its doors for 26th year for at-risk kids of its Charity Comedy Camp

Jamie Masada and The Laugh Factory have been operating a Charity Comedy Camp for at-risk kids for the past quarter-century, and on Saturday, they're opening the doors again for underprivileged kids from 9-16 who live near Los Angeles to audition and potentially learn stand-up from the pros.

It's a free camp. Previous counselors Bob Saget, Dane Cook, Chris Tucker, Shawn Wayans, Paul Rodriguez, Jamie Foxx, & Rob Schneider are featured in this trailer:

More info? Auditions will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 19 at the club. The camp takes place over the next 8-10 weeks in the summer. Please RSVP and call or email with any questions!

This is Dane Cook's 12th year working with the camp, and you can see him talk about it with TV Guide in this clip from two summers ago. Roll it.
