Laugh Your Face Off



Raised Over $310,000



From April 6, 2017 Chicago Comedy Show Event


By Pat Tomasulo


When we started “Laugh Your Face Off!” our intent was for it to grow a little bit each year, but our 2017 show blew away all expectations we had. As of this writing, the show has raised over $310,000 for the Facial Pain Research Foundation, which is more than DOUBLE what we made in our first 2 years COMBINED ($285,000). 


And we say “has raised,” because we’re not done yet. This Sunday, WGN-TV here in Chicago is airing a 1-hour primetime special of the show, where viewers will have the chance to donate via text. For all of our patients and supporters outside of Chicago, we’ve also arranged for the station to live stream the show at, beginning at 8PM Central Time. So you can watch it ALL OVER THE WORLD. 


We are incredibly humbled and grateful for all of the support we’ve gotten from so many, especially the members of our LYFO planning committee, many of whom are TN patients. Their strength and resolve are the reason why we’ve grown so much.







If you can't make it to a TV, we're also LIVE-STREAMING the special at However you watch, be sure to use the hashtag #LYFOonWGN on social media. We'll be doing a text-to-give campaign allowing viewers to donate to a cure! 
If you miss the show on Sunday night, you'll have 2 additional chances to watch encore

presentations on Saturday, April 29th at 10PM on WGN, and Sunday, April 30th at 12PM on CLTV, as well as portions of the show on
