Louie Anderson is one of the most versatile and successful comedians working in Hollywood today, loved by the television audiences who never missed his nightly hit series Family Feud or his appearances on late night chat shows. He is adored by standing-room-only crowds in Las Vegas and respected by readers of his books. He is worshiped by the rising comics he mentors and encourages with his honesty and wisdom.
His best selling books include “Dear Dad – Letters From An Adult Child”, a collection of alternately touching and outrageous letters from Louie to his late father, and “Good-bye Jumbo… Hello Cruel World”, self-help for those who struggle with self-esteem issues, as only an award-winning comedian could write it.
Louie recently finished writing his newest installment on family, “The F Word, How to Survive Your Family.” Now, Louie is traveling the States doing what Louie loves to do, Stand Up Comedy. Louie again delivers to his fans his inimitable brand of humor and warmth.
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. Henry’s one hour Comedy Central Special, What’s That Clickin Noise? is currently running and he can also be heard on Sirus, XM and Blue Collar Radio. Some of Henry’s film credits include McHale’s Navy, Say It Isn’t So, and Material Girls.
Cho has worked extensively with Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood and many others. Last spring, Henry sold a special/pilot to GAC (Great American Country) in which he would serve as host, co-writer, and co-producer. The Henry Cho Show aired in Fall 2011.
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.”
Laugh Away SMA is a comedy event. But it’s more than that. Yes, it provides a fun evening out for the community. It also helps save the lives of children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a degenerative disease that causes the muscles to waste away, which eventually leads 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.
You’ve heard that laughter is the best medicine. We’re here to tell you that seeing is believing. Your $35 ticket will help us continue our fight against SMA. Finding a cure for SMA is not far flung theory. Researchers believe that we are on the brink of curing SMA. The finish line is in sight and we need your help to get there.
Because of Stop SMA’s all-volunteer staff, 100% of the proceeds will be used to fund research and raise awareness about the cause (so that we can fund more research).
So make sure you grab some tickets, mark your calendar, and prepare to have a hilariously entertaining night out. And pat yourself on the back because you are going to laugh away SMA.
A stand-up comedy show featuring Louie Anderson and Henry Cho. Proceeds benefit Stop SMA.
