To say the least, there have been a lot of changes in the past few months—and the past week or so, in particular—that induce anxiety. There’s never a bad time to stand up for a cause that you believe in, but at the same time, now seems like a better time than ever to do such a thing. On Monday 1/30, Saturday Night Live/Weekend Update star Michael Che is hosting his own secret show at The Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, where tickets—which have already sold out— were $20 a pop, with 100% of proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. The comedian says he’ll match the total donation amount himself, as well.

The comedian cites ‘a top secret’ lineup in his Instagram post, and given who his friends are—the Saturday Night Live cast and alumni—it’s safe to assume that it should be a pretty exciting and laugh-filled showcase.

Unfortunately, the event sold out quickly after Che posted the information on his Instagram account, but nonetheless, this should be a great event and generate a lot of money for a great cause. Che, whose shoot-from-the-hip style landed him a brief gig on The Daily Show before he came to SNL in 2014, has been a fixture in the New York City stand-up scene for years, and even just released a great new special on Netflix, Michael Che Matters. 

UPDATE: Due to overwhelming demand, Che has announced that he’ll be holding another show in the coming weeks/months with another secret lineup. We’ll be waiting anxiously:
