Comedians raise $250,000 for tuberous sclerosis

Cure Benefit held at Roosevelt Hotel

At the 10th annual Comedy for a Cure benefit for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance at the Roosevelt Hotel, emcee Larry Miller felt the Sunday-night event was quite a tongue twister.

“Tub … Tubler … it’s only my second year here, so it’s hard to say,” he quipped.

The evening included dinner, standup from Mark Schiff and Chelsea Handler and a live auction.

“The prize is dinner on us. Unfortunately, it’s tonight,” Miller joked. As for the auction, where prizes included a Maltese and a meet-and-greet with Seal, Miller said he would not be participating. “I’m terrified that I’m going to scratch my ear and have bought an island.”

Handler was, as expected, a bit more blue. “I’m humbled to be included in anything nice,” she said. “Because I’m terrible for a career.” The other reason Handler decided to participate? “I’m home on the weekends and usually sober on Sundays,” she said.

Variety was a sponsor of the evening, which raised $250,000 and included thesps Shenae Grimes of “90210” and Kate Flannery of “The Office.” Flannery said she enjoyed the evening. “I’m not one of those, ‘I could have wrote a better joke,’ people and all that comparison crap.”
