 We are a Nonprofit Charitable Organization.

The mission of the Laughter Saves Lives Foundation is to provide assistance to First Responders trying to overcome financial hardship due to an unforeseen tragedy or illness. These First Responders are the silent heroes who do not hesitate to put their lives in harmís way to help others in an emergency. LSL will focus on the stories that do not make the front pages in the media, yet these individuals and families need our support.

The Laughter Saves Lives Comedy Tour produces high quality comedy shows for any and all types of organizations. Each show is dedicated to the memory of a First Responder lost on September 11, 2001 so that we may never forget his or her sacrifice. The foundation is funded through sponsorships, donations and from a portion of the show proceeds produced by the Comedy Tour. In addition, donations are also made to fire, police, and military related charities in honor of their service to others.

Former New York City Firefighter, John Larocchia had some great losses on September 11, 2001. Nineteen of his fellow firefighters from his Firehouse Hazmat 1 in Maspeth, Queens lost their lives on that day including his best friend, fellow firefighter Tommy Gardner, with whom he co-hosted a radio show.

It took some time but John began feeling like himself again through laughter and standup comedy and decided to share it with the rest of the world, by his establishment of the Laughter Saves Lives Foundation.
