Three new recruits from NBC's venerable Saturday Night Live will take the stage of the University of Pennsylvania's Irvine Auditorium tonight, doling out laughs for a worthy cause in "Stand-Up Against Homelessness."
The SNL supporting-cast members - Adam Sandler, Robert Schneider and David Spade - plus comic and MTV veejay Colin Quinn and the show's organizers hope to raise more than $40,000 to benefit the homeless in West Philadelphia.
"Stand-Up" is sponsored by Comic Relief, known for its star-studded HBO fund-raising events. (The group has raised more than $9 million to benefit homeless people nationwide.) Proceeds from "Stand-Up" will go to Philadelphia Health Care for the Homeless. The funds will be administered by Philadelphia Health Management Corp.
