As the old saying goes, “Laugh, and the world laughs with you; cry, and you cry alone,” but with a little help from Volkswagen and the 2012 Beetle, The American Comedy Fund would like to change that.
The American Comedy Fund was established by MTV Networks and Comedy Central as the first-ever charitable fund dedicated exclusively to providing social services and emergency assistance to comedic performers in times of need.
Volkswagen is donating a 2012 Beetle to The American Comedy Fund. The all-new Beetle, which boasts a sleek new look, increased horsepower, new engine offerings and a higher fun-to-driving ratio, will be auctioned off on eBay Motors with all proceeds benefitting The American Comedy Fund.
Comedy Central is honoring comedy’s brightest stars in the Comedy Awards. The event airs Sunday April 10, 2011 on Comedy Central with simulcasts on Spike TV, CMT, LOGO, Nick at Nite, TV Land and VH1. Tune in to the Comedy Awards for special announcements about The American Comedy Fund and the auction for the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle.
