28 Mar 2017

Set up for an evening of A-list comedy for a great cause

Closed 28 Mar 2017

An evening of laughter that benefits children!

This wildly successful all-star comedy benefit was first launched in 2013, and attracts the biggest names on the laughter circuit. Working in conjunction with children's charity The Garden of Dreams Foundation, Madison Square Garden's 2017 stand-up show will be hosted by Sopranos star, and will feature the combined talents of comedy's biggest names; Leslie Jones, Sebastian Maniscalco, Tracy Morgan, John Oliver and Chris Rock. The lineup will also feature spots by A-list entertainers and sports stars to introduce each segment!

With all proceeds going to the charity directly, this is a worthy cause that has raised millions of dollars for disadvantaged children, with its first show alone in 2013 raising a whopping £1 million alone, with projects to tackle homelessness, extreme poverty, illness and poor foster care. Originally hosted by Bob Costas, the first-ever lineup featured comedians including Ray Romano, Wanda Sykes, Robert Klein, Brian Regan, Darrell Hammond and Adam Ferrera, joined by a star-studded roster of presenters including Ben Stiller, Brooke Shields and Whoopi Goldberg.
