An all-star tribute honoring the late Mike DeStefano
In March of 2011 the comedy world was dealt a crushing blow as beloved New York City comedian Mike DeStefano suffered a fatal heart attack. A recovering addict who dealt with and overcame many tragedies throughout his life, Mike dedicated his existence towards helping others through the gift of stand-up comedy. Always candid and genuine, Mike always wore his heart on his sleeve and managed to touch so many people's lives by being incredibly honest & caring towards whomever he crossed paths with.
A few weeks before his death, Mike put together his most personal piece of work, a one man show called Drugs, Disease, and Death: A Comedy. The five show run featured Mike sharing his story to a small captive audience that was reduced to tears and laughter. Only Mike could garner such strong emotions from the crowd in such an entertaining fashion. Mike's goal with the show was to bring his message to a mass audience.
We are here to carry on his legacy with the Mike DeStefano Foundation, dedicated to helping people who are in recovery. It's what Mike was set to do with his one man show before he was abruptly taken away from us.
In addition to a great lineup of comedy, this event will feature rare footage of Mike DeStefano as well as tributes from friends and family. Please join us for a special night as we tribute and remember a truly talented and gifted person that the comedy world misses dearly.
