Bill Maher and Top Comedians ‘Stand Up for Animals’

Posted by at 1:29 PM | Permalink | Comments (4)


Comedy legend Bill Maher and “Roastmaster General” Jeffrey Ross made fun of everyone in the room, but it was all for a great cause.

The comedians, along with Undateable‘s Ron Funches, IFC’s Laura Kightlinger, and the Nerdist network’s Kurt Braunohler, donated their time and talent to PETA’s “Stand-Up for Animals” show at Los Angeles’ famed Comedy Store.

The packed house was laughing all night as the comedians hit cruelty to animals with their best shot. Maher, a longtime PETA ally, poked fun at hunting, asking the audience, “Is it really a sport if you have all the equipment and your opponent doesn’t know a game is going on?”

Thanks to everyone who helped make this a night of fun that will help us put a serious dent in animal abuse.
