Christopher Titus has a special message for you about the needs of children. Roll it.
Yes, the video may be a joke, but Titus is serious about helping kids. He founded a nonprofit volunteer organization called In-sight Youth Project, and on Saturday, May 7, Titus has gotten Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon to join him in a benefit show, "Laugh You‚Äôre A$$ Off, Save The World,‚Äù to help at-risk children through Los Angeles' Olive Crest program. Jillian Barberie will host the show at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, Calif. — tickets from $35-$250 are tax-deductible and can be purchased at http://www.in-sightyouth.com or by calling (818) 243-2538.
Explained Titus: "Children are our future is just a song. In-Sight Youth was set out to help organizations that help older foster kids become adults, kids who have their adult hoods ‚ÄòIn Sight.‚Äô And let‚Äôs not forget, 14 to 18 year old kids are our immediate future. It just won‚Äôt fit into a song lyric. We help kids from 8 to 18, kids who have been through 22 foster homes but were not taught the skills for the real world. We raise money for groups, like Olive Crest, who give these kids a real shot at a powerful life.‚Äù
Coincidentally, Titus also is taping a new special tonight, to be broadcast on Comedy Central this summer.
