Funny man Rob Brackenridge sent us this email:

My friend and fellow comedian, Bill Devlin, recently had open heart surgery. He had a rare heart disease called Endocarditis (bacteria on the heart valve). He going to be good as new and better than ever, but after the surgery and 20 days in Cedar Sinai he has a large medical bill even after his insurance paid their part. In an effort to help him out I am organizing a benefit at the World Famous Improv in Hollywood this Sunday, Nov. 16th at 6:30pm. There will be a fantastic lineup of comedians including: Kathleen Madigan (From Last Comic Standing and the Tonight Show), Skippy Green (Flip Schultz‘s character), KP Anderson and Greg Fidler (From E!’s “The Soup”), Lenny Schmidt, and yours truly Rob Brackenridge. We might have some special guests such as Drew Carey and Nick Swardson.

More after the break.

I hope to see you all at the show…… And thank you…. Rob Brackenridge
