Jerry Seinfeld at Laughter is the Best Medicine Gala - April 2012
Laughter really can cure all. Toronto's v. own Will Arnett returned home tonight for a cause close to heart. Allstream Centre (Exhibition Place) was the venue of choice for an über-glamorous Black Tie Affair titled Laughter is the Best Medicine. The Evening was hosted by the Up All Night Star, who also was accompanied by his talented Wife - Parks & Recreation Star Amy Poehler (whom we met late 2010), while Comedian Derek Edwards warmed-up the Audience. 

Arnett's Father Jim, served on the Board for the Toronto East General Hospital between 2002 to 2009, serving as Chairman between 2006 to 2008. $3 million in proceeds raised from the $1k-per-head Gala will go to support the Hospital's $211-million-dollar Capital Redevelopment Project. The Project will see the establishment of a new Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre, enhancing access to critical Inpatient and Outpatient services for more than 500k in the Greater Toronto Area. The Gala honoured Arnett as the Hospital's first-ever Honourary Doctor.

With over 1,500 Attendees in-house, Guests were treated to a Surprise Performance with legendary Comedy King Jerry Seinfeld headlining the Event, which had him billed mysteriously as "one of the World's most well-known TV Personalities". Seinfeld pleased the Crowd with his signature and v. familiar brand of Humour with Twitter Reviews ranging from "amazing" to "killing it" to "tearing it up".

Seinfeld will be returning to Toronto soon again with two Shows scheduled at Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, May 4-5, 2012Click here for more details.
