Here’s a list of folks who’ll appear onstage January 6, 2014 for a 90-minute sketch-and-improv performance at UP Comedy Club’s first-ever “Our Living Room Show” benefit, which supports Onward Neighborhood House and Letters to Santa:

Aidy Bryant (“Saturday Night Live”), Kevin Dorff (formerly a writer on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”), TJ Jagodowski (“TJ & Dave,” Sonic commercials), Beth Melewski (“Cash Cab Chicago”), Mike O’Brien (“Saturday Night Live” featured player), Tim Robinson (“Saturday Night Live” writer), Tami Sagher (writer for “30 Rock” and “How I Met Your Mother”), Horatio Sanz (former “Saturday Night Live” cast member) and Cecily Strong (“Saturday Night Live” cast member and “Weekend Update” co-anchor).

A set from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy caps the evening.

But tickets are limited (UP’s capacity is 285) for the 7 p.m. show. They’re not cheap, either. Prices start at $300 for standard seats, rise to $500 for front row ones and hit $1,000 for “premium rail seating.” Pony up for the latter and you’ll get to request one song during Tweedy’s set.
