December 14th's ImprovBoston Fun-Raiser brought together Boston comedy alumni from near and far.

WICF Co-Director Maria Ciampa with Kate Flannery of The Office.

The 2009 ImprovBoston Fun-Raiser at the Estate Nightclub in downtown Boston featured live performances from great women and men in comedy. Even Kate Flannery spent time in Boston performing in The Real Live Brady Bunch. Kate is not only known to millions as Meredith on NBC's mega-hit The Office, but is also a wonderful sketch and improv comedienne. Kate performed live with longtime friend and creative collaborator (and Real Live Brady Bunch Musical Director) Faith Soloway. If you live in LA, you can see Kate perform live on a regular basis  in her hit show The Lampshades. If you live in Boston, check out  one of Faith Soloway's many great projects, like Jesus Has Two Mommies. Check for her latest on her official website.

Jonathan Katz (Comedy Central's Dr. Katz), Adam Felber (Wait Wait Don't Tell Me), ImprovBoston's Harry Gordon, "The Roast Master", Shane Mauss (Comedy Central, Late Night with Conan O'Brien), Myq Kaplan (Comedy Central, Late Night with Conan O'Brien), MC Mr. Napkins (Voted Boston's Best Standup of 2009 in the Boston Phoenix annual reader's poll) and ImprovBoston's Alumni team also performed live.

Special video performances from Wendy Liebman and Janeane Garofalo premiered at the benefit.

Below is a clip from Janeane Garofalo's video with ImprovBoston's Bobby Smithney awkwardly explaining the celebrity crush rule he shares with his wife. Guess who's his celebrity crush?
