Comedians Raise Cash for Cancer Study

.c The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ray Romano will be delivering punchlines to raise money for a study examining laughter's effect on ailing children.

Romano, star of the CBS sitcom ``Everybody Loves Raymond,'' is the headliner at a Sept. 27 benefit for the UCLA Jonsson Cancer study.

Kevin James of CBS' ``The King of Queens'' and standup comedian Wendy Liebman also will entertain, concert co-sponsor Comedy Central announced Wednesday. Tickets went on sale Thursday.

The study, Rx Laughter, is testing whether laughter can help children and adolescents deal with the pain of treating life-threatening illnesses including cancer.

The five-year study, lead by Drs. Margaret Stuber and Lonnie Zeltzer, began in February 2000 with a $75,000 seed grant from Comedy Central.
