The Biggest Laugh in Town

Stop SMA is proud to partner with JWH Equipment to bring you Laugh Away SMA. Comedians Tom Arnold and Henry Cho will deliver a world-class show that’ll have your ribs aching from laughter. As always, we’ve worked to have some amazing autographed collectables available during the pre-show auction. Your support helps us fund critical SMA research and provide specialized wheelchairs to young children.

Tom Arnold

As a writer, producer, and actor, Tom Arnold has established himself to both television and film audiences worldwide. Additionally, he helped put Fox Sports Network on the map with his hosting duties on “BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW PERIOD”. He recently returned to his roots as a stand-up comic. Never scripted, Tom pokes fun at his Midwest past, marital follies and absurd Hollywood stories. Just like his past film and television comedy work, Tom is a ball of chaos and charisma on stage.

Henry Cho

Henry’s TV and film credits include appearances on NBC’s The Tonight Show, CBS’s The Late, Late, Show, and NBC’s Young Comedians Special. He served two years as host of NBC’s Friday Night Videos and had many guest roles on various network sitcoms. He has worked extensively with Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood and many, others. The adult but clean comedy is something the entire family can enjoy. And as Henry says, “I’m an Asian with a Southern accent. To a lot of people, that right there is funny.”

Pre-show auction

Come early to see the collectable items in our pre-show silent auction, starting at 6:45pm. We work hard to have truly great items available. In years past we’ve had everything from sheet music autographed by Top 40 stars and guitars signed by country legends to autographed sports memorabilia and iconic movie posters signed by the main cast. Don’t miss out on the fun before the fun!

About the Cause

Laugh Away SMA is a comedy event that provides a fun evening out for the community and helps save the lives of children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a degenerative disease that causes the muscles to waste away, which can eventually lead to death. All of the proceeds benefit Stop SMA, a small non-profit with a big heart and a big vision — to stop SMA in its tracks. Stop SMA funds groundbreaking research that is vital to finding a cure for SMA.
