LAUGH for lives

DATE: MARCH 23, 2018

AADP is so excited to announce the 11th annual Laugh for Lives comedy show fundraiser on March 23rd, 2018 from 8PM-10: 30 PM at Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco.

This year we have Steve Byrne headlining the show along with other local Asian comedians. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Steve Byrne was born to a Korean mother and an Irish father. His unique background gave him the base comedic material for his first television show, Sullivan & Son, which aired for 3 seasons on TBS. He began his career slugging it out in the comedy clubs of New York City and making the esteemed Comedy Cellar his home club all the while. His hilarious standup has been seen on TBS’s Conan, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS’s The Late Late Show, BET’s Comic View and he has appeared on NBC’s The Tonight Show a total of 10 times.

Each year Laugh for Lives is attended by over 700 people. Because of attendees like you, AADP has been able to raise awareness in the community and register more donors for our 14K searching patients. We hope to see you again this year so we can continue our mission in saving lives.
