Comics Against Cancer

Join us for 2 hours of laughter when we welcome national touring comedians to Rochester. Founded in 2009 by local comedian Steve Burr after his mother passed away, Comics Against Cancer is a night of laughter all in support of Gilda’s Club Rochester.

Events at Gilda’s Club

In order to serve thousands of families each year – and because Gilda’s Club receives no government funding – we rely heavily on funds raised though numerous events that celebrate our members, educate our community, and showcase what Gilda’s Club is all about. All event proceeds stay here in Rochester to support those in our community impacted by cancer.

From annual fan-favorites to featured events, Gilda’s Club hosts some of the most unique and exciting celebrations in the area. Check out our calendar for upcoming events or see highlights from past events below. Feel free to contact Heather Rossi at or via phone at 585.432.9700 with questions or to learn more about how you can be a part of these events.
