A Canadian comedy legend and his son, the latter an accomplished figure in television and comedy himself, will headline the annual Laugh Out Loud gala at Mississauga Hospital next Thursday night.

Eugene Levy and Dan Levy promise lots of laughs at Trillium Health Partners’ Laugh Out Loud: The Last Laugh fundraising event, which will be held virtually on December 2 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The night begins with a cocktail party virtual from 7-8 p.m., followed by the live event from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

This year’s gala, which once again raises funds for the hospital, marks the end of Laugh Out Loud events after nine years. Starting next year, the hospital will change its fundraising schedule to make room for new events.

Tickets for the gala start at $ 50, with all proceeds going to fund the redevelopment and expansion of Mississauga Hospital, one of three hospitals under the umbrella of Trillium Health Partners (THP). Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga and Queensway Health Center in Etobicoke are also part of THP.

Hospital officials say fundraisers like the annual gala are crucial for health care in Mississauga, as no hospital in Ontario is expected to experience more demand for active services in the next 20 years than THP.

Next week’s gala will be hosted by Canadian comedy and theater personalities Jessica Holmes and Gerry Dee. Organizers promise the pairing will have the local audience in stitches even before the duo Levy hit the screen.

Eugene and Dan Levy are most recently known as David and Johnny Rose on the award-winning CBC sitcom Schitt’s Creek.

Eugene Levy has won several awards throughout his career, including four Prime Time Emmy Awards and a Grammy Award. In 2008, he received the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award, Canada’s highest honor in the performing arts, and three years later he was appointed to the Order of Canada.

Each gala ticket purchased allows the holder to enter a raffle to win a signed copy of the book Best Wishes, Best Regards: The History of Schitt’s Creek.
