Laugh For Sight is a non-profit for improving public awareness and raising funds for Retinal Degenerative Eye Disease research. Founded in 2005 by stand-up comedian Brian Fischler, Laugh for Sight is the premiere comedy event that compiles a lineup of “all-star”comedians that audiences usually never get to see together on stage or under one roof.
Fischler, who was diagnosed with the disease at age 12 and has been visually impaired since his late 20’s, founded Laugh For Sight nine years ago to raise awareness about the disease, which affects 1 in 3,000 people. "The generosity of the comedy world and the talented performers who donate their time to Laugh for Sight as we strive towards a cure for retinal degenerative eye diseases is simply amazing,”says Fischler.
Previous at Laugh for Sight events include Jerry Seinfeld, Robert Klein, Steven Wright, Sarah Silverman, Lewis Black, Jenna Elfman, Kevin Pollak, Kevin Nealon, Colin Quinn, Jim Gaffigan, Dave Attell, Jim Norton, Bianca Kajlich, John Oliver, Paul Rodriguez, Greg Proops, Harland Williams, and many more.
