Actors and writers from the comedy “Mystery Team” will contribute to “Comedy for the Cure,” a variety show at Cal State Long Beach, to raise benefits and awareness to find a cure for leukemia.

“Comedy for the Cure” will take place in the Beach Auditorium from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for general admission.

“This is a great way to get people involved for a good cause,” Zach McAnany, a sophomore business major, said. “Everyone can connect with comedy on some level.”

Jordan Morris and Jesse Thorn will host their comedy podcast “Jordan, Jesse Go!” on MaximumFun.org.

According to the website, the show is frequently among the top comedy podcasts in the iTunes directory, and has been chosen as “Best of iTunes.”

The duo will be presenting comedians such as DC Pierson and Dominic Dirkes, two of the writers and actors in the “Mystery Team” trio.

Comedians Joe Wengert, Eliza Skinner, Daniel Eachus and Andy Kneis will also be featured.

These performers are not new to the comedy scene.

Wegnert is an academic supervisor and a regular performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) Theatre in Los Angeles. He is a former writer of the Onion News Network and he currently performs improvisational shows weekly.

Skinner also performs in the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles and New York. She is part of several comedy videos from College Humor and Funny or Die.

Eachus is the student host of “The Really Really Good Comedy Show,” held monthly in CSULB’s Golden Nugget.

Kneis, former editor of CSULB’s Union Weekly, is now a comedian at Flappers.

All tickets purchased will benefit leukemia and the Lymphoma Society. Tickets are available at the USU or at the door on the night of the event.
