Cool Comedy – Hot Cuisine is the Scleroderma Research Foundation’s signature fundraiser. It’s a night of gourmet cuisine and world-class comedy, featuring the foods of celebrity chefs and appearances from some of the biggest names in comedy - including Louis, CK, Jimmy Fallon, 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 Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. Our next event is coming up on June 16th in Los Angeles, and will pay tribute to Bob Saget and celebrate 30 years of the SRF and Cool Comedy - Hot Cuisine, click here to learn more.
