Morgan Spurlock Working On New Project Focused On ‘celebrity And Fame,’ Seen Among Paparazzi Following Celebs Kim Kardashian And Julianne Hough

Morgan had a film crew with him as he snapped photos of Kim Kardashian at the airport.

As he did in 2009 , Siegel said the events beneficiaries have fallen short in promoting Funniest Celebritys sale of tickets (which cost $200 this year) or tables ($2,500). Were really a pass-through charity, he said. We create the event, we sell a little bit more and we give a vehicle for the charity to make some money. Yet under tax law, Funniest Celebrity is no mere event planner: Its an official tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit. But to the eye of charity experts, its ratio of expenses vs. donations is out of whack. In 2009, when White House economist Austan Goolsbee was crowned the Funniest , the show netted more than $14,000, after some $12,000 in event costs, according to the groups tax filings for that year which cite $0 in charitable donations. (Reps for the events beneficiary, Stand Up for Kids, did not respond to a request for comment.) Jon Lovett in 2011. (Marvin Joseph / The Washington Post) In 2010, when President Obamas speechwriter Jon Lovett bested ABC reporter John Hendren, the show also cost about $12,000 but netted nearly $19,000. Tax records indicate that Fisher House, which provides lodging for wounded vets and their families, saw $1,710 of that. (The charitys reps confirmed that they received a donation but would not disclose the amount.) And in 2011, when then-Sen. Scott Brown and then-Rep. Allen West did standup, Funniest Celebrity netted $17,530 (after grossing a remarkable $53,000), and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation got a check for $1,020. However: That check bounced, a Komen rep told us and they have no record of receiving a replacement. Siegel maintains that Komen received $1,400 from Funniest Celebrity.
