Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer and Cameron Esposito Join Lineup for UNCIVIL UNION Pride Week Benefit Concert, 6/25
Broad City stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer and comedian Cameron Esposito have been added to the stellar lineup for UNCIVIL UNION, an all-star PRIDE Week concert benefitting The Ally Coalition, Broadway Impact, and New Alternatives for Homeless Youth.
The two co-creators of Comedy Central's breakout hit will join Esposito -- whose stand-up act once prompted Jay Leno to rave that "Lesbians rule!" - will join a growing roster of indie comedy and music stars performing in the June 25th concert, including host Carrie Keagan, W. Kamau Bell, Nikki Glaser, Jillette Johnson, Mates of State, Wakey!Wakey!, and more.
Founded by members of the Grammy Award-winning band FUN. and designer Rachel Antonoff, The Ally Coalition works with members of the music, fashion and entertainment worlds to raise awareness of LGBTQ equality and funding for local LGBTQ groups across the country.
"UNCIVIL UNION combines two of our favorite entertainments - music and comedy - to celebrate equality," said The Ally Coalition co-founders Rachel Antonoff, Nate Ruess, Jack Antonoff and Andrew Dost. "Even better is that we can support terrific local organizations tirelessly working for equal rights."
In keeping with its mission, funds raised through UNCIVIL UNION will benefit New Alternatives For LGBT Homeless Youth, which helps homeless LGBT youth become self-sufficient and transition into stable adult lives, and Broadway Impact, a grassroots organization of theater artists and fans mobilized in support of marriage equality.
