Some of world’s greatest comedians showed up at the David Lynch Foundation fundraising event to honor legendary talent manager and producer George Shapiro. The event, held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills on Saturday, June 30th, created a major media buzz. George Shapiro received the Lifetime of Bliss Award, and the audience was entertained by Russell Brand, Sarah Silverman, Garry Shandling, and surprise guests Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld.
The night of comedy benefited veterans and at-risk youth making it possible for them to learn Transcendental Meditation to overcome traumatic stress and get a new start on life.
