Actor, comedian Sinbad to headline downtown Indy cancer support benefit


INDIANAPOLIS–Actor and comedian Sinbad has been announced as the headliner when Cancer Support Community Central Indiana (CSC) hosts Laughing Matters, its 21st annual comedy fundraiser.

The event will be held on Saturday, November 13, 2021, in the Egyptian Room at Old National Centre located in downtown Indianapolis. 

Organizers said Laughing Matters has become one of the premiere fundraisers in the Indianapolis area and Sinbad is “an epic addition to the list of celebrity comedians that have supported this event.”

“Cancer Support Community is thrilled with the prospect of being able to hold an in-person event in 2021,” said CSC President and CEO Eric Richards. “Our organization provides free support services for those impacted by cancer in our community and we could not offer the support we do without funds raised through events like Laughing Matters.”

The CSC event features a reception with complimentary cocktails, dinner, a silent auction, and a meet-and-greet with Sinbad for VIP guests. 

For safety, local guidelines surrounding Covid-19 will be followed. Seating will be limited.
