Comics Come Home
Comics Come Home is the longest running stand-up comedy benefit in the nation. Hosted since its inception by Actor/Comedian Denis Leary, the show features an all star lineup of well known comics from around the country, most of whom got their start in comedy clubs in and around Boston. This event has become the premier comedy show in Boston and the region. In 2011 DCU for Kids joined the Comics Come Home family as presenting sponsor and we are thrilled with the relationship we have built with such a great organization. Visit the DCU for Kids website to find out more about who they are and all they've done for kids in need.
Comics Come Home, in its 18th year in 2012, is held in mid November. The show which is held at the Agganis Arena at Boston University, either sells out (6,000 in attendance) or comes close to it every year and the cast of comedians is hand picked by Denis and is top-notch! These comedians kept everyone in stitches from start to finish. Comedians who have donated their time to the show over the years include but are not limited to: Jimmy Fallon, Whitney Cummings, Lenny Clarke, Adam Ferrara, Dane Cook, Patrice Oneal, Bill Burr, Tony V, Kenny Rogerson, Darrell Hammond and more! Every year the list changes and every year the audience laughs hard enough to shake the roof!
More importantly, as of 2011 CCH has raised over $5.5 million since its debut and has helped the Foundation fund important initiatives over the years. Without the generosity and dedication of Denis Leary, Denis' production company Apostle, every comedian that has donated their time over the years and the wonderful crowd that comes to the show, we would not have been able to accomplish this. We can't thank everyone enough!
As mentioned before, the show will likely sell out so make sure you get your tickets as soon as they go on sale! To get in on the Pre Sale and stay informed of Foundation events, join our mailing list today.
The Foundation also has great sponsorship opportunities. Sponsors receive a wide range of coverage including but not limited to: TV commercials (numerous stations), radio spots, newspaper ads, magazine ads, postcard mailing to Foundation constituents, social media sites, during interviews and at the event on the Jumbotron, arena ribbon, and in the event program which is handed out to 6,000 attendees. Due to the nature of the event, there is a very wide demographic. For more information, call (617) 346-5900.
