night of 140 tweets

I was asked to participate in an awesome charity event called the Night of 140 Tweets. Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel put together a night at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. 140 actors, actresses, directors, producers, comedians, porn stars, and writers were invited to read one tweet, live on stage. It was pitched as a real life twitter stream.

Some of the people who performed a tweet include Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson, David Wain, Ben Stiller, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Diablo Cody, Bob Saget with John Stamos, Will Ferrell, Weird Al Yankovic, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, Justin Long, Ed Helms, Dane Cook, Jenny McCarthy, Samm Levine, Shannon Elizabeth, Nathan Fillion and Ben Stiller. Don’t ask me how, but somehow I was also invited to share a tweet up on stage. Yes, the same stage with all of the incredibly talented and famous people listed above, and many more (full list after the jump).

Video of the event will be made available on Amazon and Apple iTunes (you can preorder now on Amazon), and all the proceeds from the sale of this video will go directly to Artists For Peace and Justice (artistsforpeaceandjustice.com) to build schools in Haiti with Architecture For Humanity (architectureforhumanity.org). The digital download is only $2.99, and the DVD copy is being sold for only $10.99. All the proceeds go to a very good cause, and I’m proud to have been part of the event. Check out the trailer after the jump.
