Jan. 10: Comedy Benefit in Santa Rosa

It’s a new year and you’ve made resolutions to help out more but don’t know where to start. How about with some laughs? That’s the plan this weekend, when the Sonoma County YMCA teams up with local standup comedians for their third annual comedy event, Stand Up for Youth. The show features North Bay headliner Steve Ausburne and everyone’s favorite “uncle” Charlie Adams, hosting and performing along with veteran funnyman Ricky Del Rosario and surprise guests. Best of all, the night benefits kids, providing financial help for camp, mentoring and even swim lessons. Cocktails open the night and the humor is geared toward adults, so only bring the big kids when you see Stand Up for Youth on Saturday, Jan. 10, at Odd Fellows Hall, 545 Pacific Ave., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $15–$20. 707.545.9622×3113.
