Young Professional Comedy Night 2015


CCFA’s Young Professionals 7th Annual Comedy Night was another huge success.  For the first time, we were completely sold out and raised more than $16,000 for CCFA’s research, advocacy and education initiatives. Everyone that attended, laughed their A$$es off for a good cause. 


Alex Modell, Nicole White, Brittany Modell, David Gelbard, Ashley Modell, Andrew Modell and Missy Modell all deserve a hand for being great Co-Chairs and making the YP Comedy Night one of the best so far.  

Huge thank you to Mel’s Burger Bar for providing the delicious dinner. Kudos to Melt for donating some of the best ice cream sandwiches in New York City and Insomnia Cookies those cookies never disappoint.  Special thanks to all the committee members and volunteers for showing their support and helping to fill the room.  Special Mention to all the comedians who were fabulously funny this year:  Michael Fine - Host, DC Benney, Luc Hyman, Ted Alexandro, Joe DeVito and Ophira Eisenberg.


 To all the attendees, thank you for laughing with us and supporting us year after year. For more information on our Young Professionals Committee, email  For information on other YP events or Chapter events go to
