Dying to Find the Cure for Murder: A Cell Camp Benefit

Dying to Find a Cure for Murder: A Cell Camp Benefit
Friday, October 23rd at 10:00 at Studio B

Murder kills millions each year, yet a cure for the disease has not been found. Comedy troupe Cell Camp is taking a stab at a formal benefit to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for murder.

The benefit will feature guest speakers, a murder prevention presentation, a documentary of living with someone diagnosed with murder and a performance by dance troupe Funky See Funky Do.

Right in time for Halloween, the event will take place on Friday, October 23rd from 9:45pm-11:00pm at Studio Be located at 3110 North Sheffield Ave - conveniently located off the Belmont el stop. Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door.

The event will include minimal hors d'oeuvres, a raffle for prizes from local merchants and jello shots. Minimal alcohol will be provided so patrons are encouraged to bring their own. Coolers of ice, cups and tiny umbrellas will be available.

All proceeds for the event will go towards funding Cell Camp comedy and keeping Chicago laughing its bloody head off.

Cell Camp's smartly twisted style of sketch comedy stands out and creates buzz. SNL alum Garrett Morris called the group "brilliant", while Time Out Chicago dubbed Cell Camp "totally tactless" as well as one of the "best and brightest" at the 2009 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival.

Neil Goes Hollywood

Cell Camp's own Neil Arsenty is headed to Los Angeles, California this week to film a few minor roles for the pilot/presentation of Midwest Teen Sex Show for Comedy Central.

Neil has been a part of the online video podcast for nearly the last two years and the television deal was publicly announced on back in May. If the network likes the pilot (which is filming this week), a series deal for an upcoming season could be next.

More information can be found at the MTSS website. In the meantime, watch this MTSS short featuring Cell Camp's own Neil, Kate and Marla!

Life Imitates Art

In New York, a 15-year old girl has fallen into a manhole while she was texting on her phone. Her parents are suing the city. Her name is Alexa. In response to the workmen’s apology after they helped her out of the hole, she said “They were just, like, ‘I’m sorry! I’m sorry!’”

"Like, Help!", which premiered in Cell Camp's "Social Graceless" sketch comedy revue in April, tells the tale of a teenage girl (Charlisa) who falls into a manhole. Her friend Sreena attempts to get help from a passerby, who finds it hard to understand her teen lingo. Sreena complains, “We should, like, sue the city!”

We are watching the headlines for the first automated drive thru.
