    The HCC FunnyRaiser features local, amateur comedians who graciously agree to take the stage and attempt to make you laugh. Each comic will present a stand-up act and long-time FunnyRaiser emcee, Joe Strupek, will keep you in stitches throughout.

    You will enjoy a catered dinner, cash bar and silent auction. You'll get to cast your vote with cash for your favorite comedian in the People's Choice Award contest. A panel of guest judges will select the winner of the Judge's Choice Award.
