Laughing Matters

A Night of Comedy & Fundraising


On Saturday, June 24th, at Clowes Memorial Hall on the campus of Butler University, Cancer Support Community Indiana (CSCI) will welcome one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country, Jeff Foxworthy, to headline their Laughing Matters Comedy Gala.

Being one of the premiere fundraisers in the Indianapolis area, Laughing Matters creates hope through laughter by helping to raise necessary funds to support Cancer Support Community Indiana’s free programs and services for Hoosiers impacted by cancer.

Jeff Foxworthy is a household name. Widely known for his “Blue Collar Comedy Tour,” he is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history. His performances explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature, delivered from an ‘average guy’ perspective. Beyond his stand-up success, Foxworthy has hosted or starred in five television series and shows, is a multiple Grammy Award nominee, and is the best-selling author of 26 books.

Prior to Jeff taking the stage, CSCI will welcome opener and local comedian, Willie Griswold.  Willie Griswold is an Indianapolis comedian and a cast member of the Bob and Tom Show who started performing in Chicago while studying at the Second City Conservatory.  Griswold has opened for nationally touring comedians Greg Hahn and Josh Arnold.  He loves comedy, chicken wings, the Pacers and the Colts.

Presale tickets go on sale Thursday, March 2, at 10am.  Public tickets go on sale Friday, March 3, at 10:00am.  Tickets can be purchased at or
