Cool Comedy – Hot Cuisine is the Scleroderma Research Foundation’s signature fundraiser. It’s a night of gourmet cuisine and world-class comedy hosted by SRF Board Member and actor/comedian Bob Saget, featuring the foods of celebrity chefs Susan Feniger (also an SRF Board Member) and Mary Sue Milliken (Bravo Top Chef Masters and Food Network's Too Hot Tamales) and appearances from some of the biggest names in comedy - including Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, Brian Regan, Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman, Jon Stewart and Robin Williams. The event often features a special musical guest (previous guests have included Counting Crows, Sheryl Crow, Goo Goo Dolls, Dave Koz, John Mayer, Train and others). The evening typically includes a small number of exclusive live auction packages. Attendees include luminaries from the worlds of television, film, music and business—and many others who have been directly or indirectly affected by scleroderma.

Since its inception in 1988, the event has raised millions of dollars for scleroderma research and brought a great deal of media attention to the disease. It has introduced scleroderma and the Scleroderma Research Foundation to thousands of people around the country.

Cool Comedy – Hot Cuisine events are currently hosted in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. The most recent event was held November 4, 2013 at Carolines on Broadway. It featured host Bob Saget, the cuisine of Top Chef Masters Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger as well as appearances by John Stamos, Jim Gaffigan, The Daily Show's John Oliver, The View's Sherri Shepherd and James Smith. The event raised nearly $600,000 for scleroderma research. The next event is scheduled for April 23, 2014 in San Francisco with host Bob Saget, comedians Dana Carvey and Jeff Garlin and special musical guest, Train. Reserve space now.
