The Center for Hearing and Communication celebrates 100 years as New York’s leader in hearing health care with an evening of 100 laughs at Comix.
You’re invited to a riotous fundraising event April 21st at Comix where big names in stand-up gather to raise big bucks for this venerable nonprofit founded 100 years ago in 1910. All proceeds go to the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC), a hearing center that has transformed the lives of more than a million infants, children and adults with hearing loss through innovative treatments and therapies that foster independence and personal achievement.
This year’s Benefit is the 24th annual stand-up event presented by CHC. What makes this event so unique is that all punch lines are made accessible to people who are deaf of hard of hearing. Through real-time captioning (CART), infrared listening devices and ASL interpreters, this evening of 100 laughs is made accessible to anyone with a hearing loss.
This year’s lineup* includes:
Darrell Hammond (Saturday Night Live)
Colin Quinn (“Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn”)
Christian Finnegan (Comedy Central, Countdown with Keith Olbermann”)
Dave Attell (Comedy Central’s “Insomniac”)
