The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance and Carolines on Broadway celebrated fifteen years of raising awareness and funds together through Stand up for Madeline & OCRFA, an evening of laughter in tribute to Madeline Kahn, who died in 1999 from the disease, on Tuesday, May 16.  Among those providing the laughs at the Times Square comedy hotspot on May 16 were comedy legend Robert Klein, two-time Emmy winner Judy Gold, long-running SNL cast member and resident Trump impersonator Darrell Hammond; trial-judge-turned-comedian Vince August, Liza Treyger, Neko White and one of Ireland’s most popular comedians, Des Bishop.  Gold also hilariously presided over a live auction that included items such as signed Rangers and Mets jerseys, tickets to the 2016 PGA championship, a Dominican Republic vacation and a table Rao’s, which garnered the evening’s highest bid at $10,000.  The event raised nearly $140,000.
