Comedy for a Cure has raised more than $1.5 million for research and programs/services for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance and families affected by TSC. Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder that causes potentially fatal tumors to form on children's vital organs. TSC affects one in 6,000 children and is the leading genetic cause of epilepsy and autism.
