This ninth annual fundraiser, hosted by actor Paul Scheer (The League), will take place Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. at the famed Royce Hall on the UCLA Campus.

Zoo (#FreeBillyNow).

On behalf of the animals and all animal lovers, we are grateful to Lily Tomlin, June Diane Raphael, Paul Scheer and others for their live performances. We look forward to one of the most anticipated comedic events in Los Angeles."
