hrc-logo.gifWith all the sad events this past week, Chicagoist needs a good laugh. This weekend, get your fill of giggles at Laughing Out Loud, a two-night event featuring gay and lesbian comedians in support of the Human Rights Campaign.

marga.jpgSaturday night the event features New York City comedian Marga Gomez. Eddie Sarfaty, currently appearing on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend!", opens the night.

Jack Plotnick, actor and voice of Xandir P. Whifflebottom on Comedy Central's "Drawn Together", hosts both nights.

Tickets are available on-line for $35 and $50 and proceeds go to a great cause. The show starts at 8 p.m. at The Park West Theatre's Main Hall at 322 W. Armitage.
