The Oregon Zoo is hosting a comedy night Nov. 1 to benefit the Audubon Society of Portland and large carnivores in Tanzania.

The event features comedians Alex Falcone and Bri Bruett, with emceeing by Daria from 105.1 The Buzz, according to a release from the zoo. Expect hors d'oeuvres, plus a silent and a live auction.

Some of the funds raised will support the Tanzania-based Ruaha Carnivore Project, which is part of Oxford University's Wildlife Conservation Research Unit.

Falcone is creator and host of the live talk show "Lake Night Action" and podcast "Read It and Weep," according to the release. He has appeared on "Portlandia" and writes for The Portland Mercury and the "Live Wire!" radio show.

Pruett is director of "Late Night Action" and performs with the Curious Comedy Theater and improv singing group Pipes. Willamette Week named her one of Portland's funniest comedians last year.

The fundraiser runs from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Nov 1. in the Oregon Zoo's Cascade Ballroom. Tickets -- $50 each or two for $90 -- can be purchased online.
