Leary, Louis CK, Fallon perform to benefit cancer foundation
BOSTON (AP) — Denis Leary, Louis CK, Jimmy Fallon and other famous comedians are coming together to raise money for a cancer foundation.
The long-running Comics Come Home show takes place Saturday night at the TD Garden in Boston to benefit the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care.
Massachusetts native Leary has hosted the show since its inception over two decades ago.
Ray Romano and Steven Wright are among the other prominent comedians donating their time to the cause.
This year’s show is raising money for an endoscopy suite at the Tufts Medical Center to be named in honor or Neely’s mother Marlene, who died from colon cancer.
Neely is a Hall of Fame hockey player who is president of the Boston Bruins. His nonprofit foundation was established in 1995.
