The International Myeloma Foundation (IMF), the oldest and largest organization dedicated to improving the lives of myeloma patients while working toward prevention and a cure – announced today the lineup for the 10th Annual Comedy Celebration, the foundation’s premier fundraising gala, taking place on Saturday, November 5 at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre. Actor and comedian Ray Romano returns to host a memorable night of comedy with featured performers that include Bill Burr, Jeff Garlin, Dom Irrera, Larry Miller, Kevin Nealon, JB Smoove, Fred Willard and more to be announced.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Peter Boyle Research Fund and support the Black Swan Research Initiative® (BSRI). 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. Click here for more information.
