The Koby Mandell Foundation knows that laughter and healing are necessary for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one. Partnering with LA funnyman Avi Liberman and the Edge Partners Team of Dena & Jeremy Wimpfheimer, Comedy for Koby, Israel’s most popular English stand up comedy tour was born.
Over the years, tens of thousands audience members in cities all around Israeli have been introduced to some of the best and brightest in the comedy world today. Through the generous support of sponsors and donors, all proceeds from ticket sales at our twice annual fundraising tours go to supporting the programs of the foundation and our work with bereaved children and families.
Coming to a town near you 6-12th December 2016!
Past comics who have performed under the Comedy for Koby banner include Roastmaster General Jeffrey Ross, Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr., opening act for Jerry Seinfeld Mark Schiff, Emmy Award winning Judy Gold and Comic Strip Live’s Wayne Cotter.
“Bringing this level of comedy to Israel gives us so much joy,” said Seth Mandell, father of Koby and co-founder of the Foundation. “It allows others to associate me and my family with a smile and a laugh rather than just with sadness and trepidation. Not only does the money from the shows go to help the bereaved families, but the shows bring much needed laughter and release for the community at a time of tension and near daily terror.
All proceeds from the Comedy for Koby tour go to benefit programs of The Koby Mandell Foundation, named in memory of 13 year old Koby Mandell, who was killed in a terror attack in 2001. Working with bereaved children and families, the Foundation offers ongoing social and therapeutic programs including Camp Koby.
