About CCHC 2022

A very special version of the SRF’s signature event, Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine, will take place this September in Los Angeles as a tribute to SRF Board Member, Bob Saget. Bob spearheaded this annual event for 30 years, initially as a guest performer and later as co-host and show producer.

We are deeply honored to have Bob’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, and his good friends and frequent CCHC performers, John Mayer and Jeff Ross, serving as Co-Chairs of this year’s event alongside longtime CCHC Co-Chair and founding SRF Board Member, Susan Feniger. The event will once again be an evening of world-class comedy and music to raise awareness about scleroderma and funds to support the SRF’s vital research programs.

Through this signature event, Bob will always be remembered not only for how he made us laugh but also for being a relentless champion for all those affected by scleroderma. He dedicated his life to funding research to find a cure, and we are committed to achieving Bob’s dream of one day ending this disease.

The History and Impact of 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 fund the most promising scleroderma research.

Hosted for many years by SRF Board Members Bob Saget and Susan Feniger, some of the world’s greatest comedians and performing artists donated their time and talents to support the SRF’s innovative research programs and help raise awareness about this rare autoimmune disease. Though devastated by the loss of Bob Saget in 2022, the SRF, in collaboration with his family and friends, will continue this event in the hopes of achieving Bob’s dream of ending scleroderma.

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.
