Stand Up for Madeline and OCRA

Stand Up for Madeline and OCRA has been cancelled this year, in accordance with public health policies surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic.  We look forward to sharing a much-needed evening of laughter and philanthropy with you in 2021!

If you have any questions, please call 212-268-1002 or email Nikki Wargo at Please take care of yourself, your family, and your community. We are all in this together.

And remember, while the world is rightly focused on this global pandemic, we remain committed to our long-standing fight to support groundbreaking research that will treat and cure ovarian cancer.

Stand Up for Madeline and OCRA is a raucous evening of laugh out loud performances from some of the top names in comedy, all for a good cause!

The biggest stars of standup have graced the stage at NYC’s hallowed comedy venue Carolines on Broadway, and each year a fresh lineup of talented performers come together to help fight ovarian cancer, in memory of the late, great Madeline Kahn.

It’s an unforgettable night of laughter, plus cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a lively silent auction. Past performers have included Mike Birbiglia, Jim Gaffigan, Judy Gold, Whoopi Goldberg, Robert Klein and many more. Lineup to be announced!

Proceeds benefit OCRA’s ovarian cancer research and support programs in Madeline Kahn’s memory.

Our sincere thanks to John Hansbury, Michelle Gerson, and Caroline Hirsch.
