Our 2020 virtual Comedy for a Cure will present some of the best comedians from the Sydney and Melbourne International Comedy Festival in support of Tuberous Sclerosis Australia (TSA).
After the year we’ve all had, let’s get together in the run-up to Christmas and have a good laugh and raise funds for people in Australia living with TSC. You’ll be able to join this fun online event from the comfort of your lounge room.
There are some great prizes to be won such as weekends away, stunning jewellery and a boxed bottle of Penfolds 407.
All funds raised on the night will go towards helping ensure children and adults living with TSC across Australia have access to ground-breaking new treatments and research that are taking us closer to a cure for this devastating disease.
