COMEDY FOR A CURE

Host, Nick Collins

Videographer, Crystal Mello

Press Pass LA attended the 2013 Comedy for a Cure benefit to help raise funds and awareness for Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). The event took place at Lure and was hosted by Mo Collins with performances by comedians Mary Lynn Rajskub, Brad Wollack, and the Lampshades featuring Scot Robinson and Kate Flannery.

For over a decade, The Comedy for a Cure benefit has raised millions to support research and services for those affected by TSC. It was an honor to interview the celebrities who turned out to support such a special evening.

TSC is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form in vital organs such as the brain, heart, skin, kidneys, eyes and lungs.  Serious health problems include epilepsy, autism, heart disease, mental retardation, facial disfigurement, kidney failure, lung disease, and even death.Not coincidentally, the possibility of a cure is closer than ever. And because TSC is the leading genetic cause of epilepsy and autism, every dollar raised to find a cure and better treatments for TSC can also mean a better understanding of epilepsy and autism, even cancer – diseases that touch most everyone all of us know and love.
