Laugh for the Cure

When: Sat., Jan. 18, 7:15 p.m. 2014

This annual Komen Charlotte event — geared toward raising breast cancer awareness and providing help to those suffering from the disease — is no sob story. Yes, there’s the usual silent and live auctions to raise funds, but besides food and drinks, there’s also a comedy show. This year’s guest comedian is Tammy Pescatelli. Pescatelli, who was a finalist on Last Comic Standing back in 2004, is one tough mama who fills her act with punchy dialogue about her parental duties, family affairs and sometimes even breasts — also referred to as “tittones” in her neighborhood.
