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 harm’s 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.
“I could have been lost on that day very easily.” -John
On 9/11, a chance moment changed John’s fate. His F.D.N.Y. firehouse lost heroes on 9/11. It took him almost fifteen years to feel comfortable returning to the site, but he was moved by his experience.
First responders put themselves on the front line for our safety every day. Honor the heroes that made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11.
