Brand & Silverman team up for Los Angeles volunteer drive

Comedians Russell Brand and Sarah Silverman are teaming up to boost volunteer work for Los Angeles charities over the holidays by staging a free gig for those who sign a commitment to give up their time.

Fans who pledge to give up two hours to work for one of six selected charities will land tickets for The Love Exchange show, which will take place at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles on 11 December (11).

Brand says, "It's two hours of comedy for two hours of volunteer work... I thought, 'Wouldn't it be a good thing?'"

And he has a stern message for fans who sign up to get tickets and then don't follow through with their volunteer pledge: "You could do that, but what is God gonna think?"
