On a night when the Philadelphia Phillies are at Dodger Stadium holding back their laughter about what’s going on with the Dodgers — while they’re giving out Duke Snider bobbleheads — another group of L.A.-based Phillies fans will be laughing it up during a fundraiser for Bryan Stow.
“Comedy for a Cause” will happen Tuesday night at The Shack in Santa Monica (2518 Wilshire Blvd. 310.449.1171. www.shacksm.com), a well-known Philly sports-fan hangout. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the comedy begins at 8:30 p.m. with Alonzo Bodden, the third-season winner of the NBC reality show “Last Comic Standing,” as the headliner. Yucksters Ray Grady, Erin Foley, and Dwayne Perkins are also on the bill.
Family members of Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who continues to recover from a March 31 attack in the Dodger Stadium parking lot, will be in attendance with donations accepted to the Bryan Stow Fund.
Admission is free and will include a silent auction, raffle, wine tasting, comp appetizers and drink specials.
FYI: The arraignment of the two men now accused of attacking Stow will take place the next day, Aug. 10.
