David Fitzsimmons is on the lineup and fellow comic Nancy Stanley is the host for Fitzsimmons’ annual “Titters: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” show on Wednesday at Laffs.

A lineup of comedians is ready to bring on the laughs — for a good cause.

David Fitzsimmons’s annual “Titters: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” features an all-female cast with one exception: Fitzsimmons, the Star’s editorial cartoonist and a veteran of Tucson’s standup community, who will get to do his own set on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at Laffs Comedy Caffe.

Fitzsimmons joins headliner Lorrie Brownstone, a former Tucson Citizen writer who left the Old Pueblo some years back to pursue standup full-time in New York City, and several other local comedians including Linda Ray, Stacy Scheff and Priscilla Fernandez.

Comedian Nancy Stanley, who has produced her own all-female benefit comedy show called the Estrogen Hour, will host Titters, which raises money for breast cancer treatment.
