Laugh It Up Milwaukee 2016


Laugh It Up Milwaukee 2016 presents edgy comedian Patton Oswalt for an evening of laughter, friendship and community. Join the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center - and our signature partner, Special Olympics Wisconsin - at the Riverside Theater on Saturday, January 30, 2016.

The evening will mark the fifth annual presentation of Laugh It Up Milwaukee, an event that demonstrates the power of organizations partnering to build a healthier Milwaukee. This year's event will benefit Special Olympics Wisconsin and support their efforts to help children and adults with intellectual disabilities overcome barriers through sports. Laugh It Up Milwaukee will also benefit special needs programming for children and adults at the JCC.

Past beneficiaries and partner agencies of Laugh It Up Milwaukee include Gilda's Club (2012), Children's Hospital of Wisconsin (2013), the MACC Fund (2014), and Hunger Task Force (2015), featured performances from comedians Seth Meyers, Susie Essman & Richard Lewis, Martin Short, and Howie Mandel.
