Laugh For Sight, which was founded in 2004 by comedian Brian Fischler, is a non-profit organization focusing on improving public awareness and raising funds for Retinal Degenerative Eye Disease research.
Fischler, who was diagnosed with the disease at age 12 and has been visually impaired since his late 20’s, said in a statement, "It continues to blow my mind the generosity of the comedy world and all of the talented performers who continue to donate their time to Laugh For Sight, and help us strive towards a cure for retinal degenerative eye diseases."
