Laughter’s the best medicine

Celebs come together for 'Cure'

WHAT: Sunday’s “Comedy for a Cure,” the fifth annual tuberous sclerosis benefit.

WHERE: Hollywood’s Henry Fonda Music Box Theater

WHO: The sold-out show, hosted by Billy Bush, feted Julianne Moore and Variety publisher/prexy Charlie Koones, while Sarah Silverman, Andy Kindler and Marissa Jaret Winokur provided the entertainment. Also on hand were honorary chair Teri Hatcher and thesps Patricia Heaton and Jane Kaczmarek.

HELP WANTED: The fight against tuberous sclerosis — a genetic disorder that causes tumor growth in vital organs and possible continual seizures — received a generous sum of cash ($250,000) courtesy of the frenzied live auction, in addition to another shining light with the surprise announcement for the creation of the Julianne Moore Research Fund for a Cure. Koones was honored for his ongoing support of colleague Henry Shapiro, whose child is living with TS.
