Bob’s wife Kathi explains, "It is a very emotional evening where many of Bob's fellow comedians come together to honor their friend. It is also a special night for our daughter, Carly, to be extra proud of her dad."
According to Rabbi Jonathan Hausman, "Bob was a cherished and active member of the congregation. This gathering of his very funny friends makes sure his memory lives on while also raising needed money for both his family and the temple. Since we started in June 2009, the show has had a ripple effect of both healing and growth for the community and we welcome Bob's comedy family."
