A funny fundraiser for Parkinson's





Saturday August 27, 2016

For our next gala event will be at the Ohio Theatre in Playhouse Square featuring....

Grammy winning jazz vocalist KURT ELLING! 

Fresh of his phenomenal performance at The White House and currently on tour in Europe with Branford Marsalis, Kurt will be bringing his sensational voice to Cleveland for the first time in 5 years. 

Regular show tickets are $75 and $50 and are available through Playhouse Square here.

If you haven't seen Kurt, check out this video of Nature Boy.

The New York Times called Kurt, "the standout male vocalist of our time." 

The Washington Post added, "...no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling."

Opening for Kurt will be the hysterical Moody McCarthy.

If you can't make the show, you can still participate in our RAFFLE. To see what that's all about and to buy tickets go to our Raffle page here.


Shaking with Laughter was established as a charitable 501(c)3 in Cleveland, with the mission to fund research for a cure for Parkinson's Disease. To date we have raised $750,000 for Parkinson's research.
