The Laugh Factory in Long Beach will host a benefit show Thursday to honor two fallen Marines.

Marine Sgt. Major Robert Cottle, 45, and Marine Lance Cpl. Rick Centanni, 19, were killed in a roadside bomb attack on March 24 while serving in Afghanistan. Cottle also served as an LAPD SWAT officer, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported. Both men are from Yorba Linda.

Stand-up comedian Tommy Davidson (pictured) will host event. Other comedians include Bob Oschack, Bret Ernst and Bryan Callen, according to the Laugh Factory's website.
