I'm going! I go every year and this is a great cast. JoAnn Worley hasn't done it before (at least the shows I've seen). didn't realize our own impressionist Jim Bailey was going to be there.

 

And Joey: Mrs. Marty Ingels has had so much plastic surgery she looks VERY odd in the picture. But who is that shorter white haired woman with her?

You're sure grouchy this morning, Mrs. Ingels!

Like I'm serious....I'm really looking forward to this as 1) it's for a great cause, 2) we get to see favorite folk, old and new who rarely get an opportunity to "strut their stuff" anymore to do so before an adoring audience and 3) it brings far away friends like NW out to LA to "hob nob with the stars"! ;)
