Ben Stiller not coming Friday for Elliot Auerbach's fundraiser starring Ben Stiller

So I'm on Facebook, (working, seriously!) and I run into this:

BEN STILLER AND ELLIOTT AUERBACH AT THE ROSENDALE THEATER ON FRIDAY (emphasis mine)




So immediately I go into berzerker mode trying to figure out how this happened and how Stiller was booked and all that.

So I clicked on "see more" ...and what I see is that the event is a screening of the movie "Greenberg" starring Ben Stiller.

For this event's headline, I declare an EPIC FAIL!

Those who attend the event thinking Stiller will be there will have to console themselves with cheese and wine and Auerbach.

I really hope his jokes are good.

Anyway, here are the details from the post:

BEN STILLER AND ELLIOTT AUERBACH AT THE ROSENDALE THEATER ON FRIDAY Friends of Elliott Auerbach, The Rosendale Theater in conjunction with the Rosendale Democratic Committee is having a fundraiser for Elliott Auerbach, candidate for re-election to the post of Ulster County Comptroller.
