Retired city cops and firefighters will be performing at a comedy show to benefit children with autism on Jan. 10.

"Guns and Hoses 2" will be held at The Jeanne Rimsky Theater in Port Washington, L.I., starting at 7 p.m.

All proceeds benefit the ELIJA School in Levittown, L.I.

Billy Bingo, a standup comic and retired city firefighter, helped organize the fund-raiser with Tim Dwyer, also a retired city firefighter, whose son attends the school.

Bingo will perform, as well as former NYPD transit cop John Diresta.

The event is open to the public and ticket prices range from $30 to $75.

For more information call Dwyer at (917) 612-8439.

Happy new year! See you in 2009.
