Kaley Cuoco to Host Stand Up for Pits in L.A.

Share with fellow dog lovers!

Television viewers know her as Penny on the hit CBS series The Big Bang Theory, but fans of Fidos recognize actress Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting from her real life role as an animal advocate. A proud pet parent to multiple Pit Bulls, the star will once again act as host when the Stand Up for Pits tour makes a ‘pit’ stop in Los Angeles.

Taking place on November 2nd at The Hollywood Improv, the actress will take the stage to welcome comics who are helping to set the stage for a better tomorrow for dogs who often find themselves hounded by prejudice. The stars scheduled to make people giggle for a good cause are: Whitney Cummings (Whitney; co-creator of the popular CBS series Two Broke Girls) and founder of the Stand Up for Pits Foundation/One Million Pibble March creator Rebecca Corry, with a musical performance by Briana Cuoco (former contestant on The Voice) and an appearance by a special mystery guest.

Along with rib-tickling routines and toe-tapping tunes, the jest fest will also include adorable adoptables from Downtown Dog Rescue and Orange County Pit Bull Rescue; a silent auction; red carpet arrivals; a Pittie kissing booth and a shelter donation drive for new or gently used dog toys, blankets, beds and other dog-related items for Rovers residing at LA County Department of Animal Care & Control in Lancaster and the South LA animal shelter.

Tickets to the comedy event are coveted, with the fundraiser’s 7 o’clock show already sold out.

Restrictions: Must be age 18 or older to attend.

Tickets: $35

When: November 2, 2014 at 9:30 p.m.

Where: Hollywood Improv at 8162 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California
