Crack Up Cancer 14 will benefit the

Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation

Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation

The Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation is a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization which provides financial support to qualified adult cancer patients in the state of Florida for expenses such as rent or mortgage, car payments and utility bills. By giving patients peace of mind in knowing that their bills are being paid while they are undergoing treatment, the FCS Foundation allows them to concentrate on what really matters – fighting cancer.

Due to the generosity of the Florida Cancer Specialists physicians in covering all overhead expenses for the Foundation, 100% of donations received go directly towards paying the essential non-medical living expenses of an adult battling cancer.

Meet The Comedians

Johnny B

For nearly 20 years, Johnny Bell has been entertaining comedy crowds around the country with a style that can be considered aggressive, logical, offensive, and level-headed all at the same time. It’s easy to simply get on stage and say controversial things, but Johnny attacks absurd life experiences –especially his own– with a critical eye that finds humor from different angles.

Catherine Maloney

Catherine Maloney seems like a typical hard working mom – except this mom sees teachable moments in the show Snapped, has won the “Biggest Jerk” Comedy Contest and entertains clubs and colleges around the country with her sharp stand-up comedy.

Derek Richards

A regular on the Las Vegas Strip, Derek’s act is fast, fresh, and at times, fanatical. He brings the funny with tales about his Irish-Catholic upbringing, divorce, the holidays, and his child-free existence. Described on a show review as, ‘Just the right amount of wrong.’ Derek is a 20 year cancer survivor who has a book, “Whiskey, Cancer and Bad Decisions” on Amazon, Audible and Kindle.

Steve Simeone

Steve Simeone developed his unique high-energy approach to storytelling by competing for laughs with his two brothers around his family dinner table. His positive, family-friendly comedy has delighted audiences around the world and made him a regular at Hollywood’s most famous comedy clubs.
