LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On Sunday night, Louisville residents can help provide comfort to a local man -- by laughing.

Mike Olsen suffers from a terminal lung disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.

Doctors say it's barely understood, incredibly dangerous and kills almost as many people as breast cancer each year.

Comedian Tom Mabe will headline a benefit comedy show for Olsen on Sunday night at the Laughing Derby in The Highlands.

Proceeds from the show will help the family with medical expenses. Doors open at 6 p.m.
