INDIANAPOLIS — Martin Short, the Tony Award-winning actor, comedian, writer and producer, will headline an annual comedy fundraiser in Indianapolis next year.

Cancer Support Community Central Indiana will celebrate its 20th year of hosting the annual comedy fundraiser, Laughing Matters, on April 25, 2020 at the Murat Theatre at Old National Centre. Short will be the event's headliner.

"For nearly two decades, Cancer Support Community has made the word 'cancer' a little less serious the night of our Laughing Matters event," Eric Richards, president and CEO of Cancer Support Community Central Indiana, said. "It's an evening to remember and celebrate all those impacted by this terrible disease but also a reminder that sometimes, laughter is the best medicine."

Tickets start at $39.50 and will go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 1 on Cancer Support Community's website and at Ticketmaster.

Sponsorship opportunities, which include a reception with complimentary cocktails and dinner and a VIP meet-and-greet with Martin Short, are also available. For more information, call 317-257-1505.
