Ray Romano hosts the IMF annual Comedy Celebration event.
The International Myeloma Foundation will hold its 7th annual Comedy Celebration benefiting the Peter Boyle Research Fund & supporting the Black Swan Research Initiative, a unique project to develop the first definitive cure for myeloma. Hosted by actor Ray Romano, this year's event will feature performances by Jeff Garlin, Jackie Hoffman, Andy Kindler, Bruce Vilanch, Justin Willman, with a special musical performance by the legendary David Crosby. Renowned actor Peter Boyle died in late 2006 after a four year battle with myeloma, an incurable cancer of the bone marrow and one of the fastest growing blood cancers in the world. Through laughter, the event honors Boyle and raises money for research to find a cure. More than $3 million has been raised thus far for the Peter Boyle Research Fund because of this annual event.
