Stoughton

Comics gather for friend

Continue reading below

In the 1980s, the Ding Ho Restaurant in Cambridge was the hangout for a group of comics who later became nationally known, such as Steven Wright, Lenny Clarke, Steve Sweeney, Jimmy Tingle, and the late Bob Lazarus of Stoughton. Wright, Clarke, Tingle, and Sweeney will be among the comics who will honor Lazarus at the Ahavath Torah Congregation, 1179 Central St., on Sept. 22. The Second Annual Bob Lazarus Memorial All-Star Comedy Benefit will be hosted by Tingle and feature others who also called the Ding Ho home. Lazarus performed all over North America for three decades, and appeared on the Comedy Central network and Showtime’s “The Brotherhood.” Proceeds will benefit the Lazarus family and the temple, where Lazarus, who died in 2009 from leukemia, was an active member.
