CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Local comedians are raising money through the joy of laughter Wednesday.

Comedians Phillip Anthony and Jess Miller held a benefit show for fellow comedian Artie Rob in Chicopee Wednesday evening. Artie recently suffered a stroke and lost the ability to speak and move his right side. All benefits from Wednesday’s show will go directly to Artie as he fights through a challenging recovery.

For those who missed the show but are interested in donating, a GoFundMe for Artie has been set up and can be found by clicking here.
