You’re Invited to CCHC 2021

Since 1987, the SRF’s signature Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine (CCHC) event has welcomed sell-out crowds and some of the world’s finest performing artists to help raise funds for vital scleroderma research. In 2020, CCHC was reimagined as a virtual event, attracting a global audience of thousands of viewers. The online broadcast was such a huge success that we’re going virtual again in 2021!

The one-hour private YouTube event will feature:

  • A new line-up of some of the biggest names in comedy and music
  • Watch Party toolkits, playlists, & recipes to help you celebrate with friends and family at home
  • A pre-show experience with trivia games, bonus content, and other surprises
  • Mobile bidding on one-of-a-kind auction items
  • Custom-curated gourmet gift boxes
  • CCHC meal kits for “Hot Cuisine” at home (offered separately by restaurants in limited cities—to be announced in September)

SRF Board Members Bob Saget and Susan Feniger will once again host this incredible event—we can’t wait for you to join us!


(Individual tickets available in September.)

A Look Back at CCHC 2020

Thanks to our generous scleroderma community, the 2020 event was a huge success. You generated an incredible $1.1 M to fund vital scleroderma research.

Words cannot express just how grateful we are to the many brilliant comedians, musicians, and actors who appeared on the broadcast last year. They generously lent their time and talents to help us raise awareness and fund research for a cure:

Jason Alexander, Jack Black, Reggie Brown, Bill Burr, Kelly Clarkson, Jim Gaffigan, Jeff Garlin, Nikki Glaser, Regina Hall, Ken Jeong, Queen Latifah, George Lopez, Howie Mandel, John Mayer, Joel McHale, Pat Monahan, Ray Romano, Jeff Ross, Sarah Silverman, and John Stamos.

About CCHC

Since its inception in 1987, Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine (CCHC) has become the Scleroderma Research Foundation’s (SRF’s) signature fundraising event, raising more than $25 million to-date to fund the most promising scleroderma research.

Hosted by Bob Saget and Susan Feniger, some of the world’s greatest comedians and performing artists donate their time and talents to support the SRF’s innovative research programs and help raise awareness about this rare autoimmune disease.

All funds raised directly support our research and patient education programs. The SRF is singularly focused on finding a cure, which is why we’ve invested more money in scleroderma research than any other nonprofit on earth.
