If you didn't already purchase tickets to Joy Behar's Friends with Benefits: a Comedy Fundraiser for The Retreat
on Sunday, September 3, you're out of luck because the show at Guild Hall
in East Hampton is officially sold out. And with a lineup that includes Susie Essman
, Rosie O'Donnell
, Mario Cantone
, Anthony Atamanuik and more, with Behar hosting, it's not surprising that tickets to this Labor Day
weekend benefit were in high demand.
"When I found out the number of children impacted by physical abuse, it got to me as a mother and grandmother and I wanted to use whatever influence I had to support The Retreat," said Behar. "This wonderful organization provides shelter to so many families and that was enough to make me want to do something. So I called on some of my friends who happen to be very funny and talented and they generously agreed to make us laugh and entertain us for this great cause."
Behar, who hosts ABC
'S The View
, has won a slew of awards, including the 2009 Daytime Emmy
for Outstanding Talk Show Host, three MAC awards, a CableAce award and a 2000 GLAAD award for her outstanding friendship to the gay community. The comedian has also hosted a number of her own shows, including The Joy Behar Show
and Say Anything
. Additionally, Behar has written five books and her latest book is set to be released this fall.
There will also be a musical performance by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Darlene Love
