Comic Vision is Fighting Blindness Canada’s (FBC) signature comedy show in support of vision research and has been bringing people together since 1999, spreading hope, vision loss awareness, and education by using humour to share its messages. With the support of laugh loving friends, corporations, colleagues, associates, and philanthropic individuals, a game-changing $10 million has been raised towards FBC’s mission to advance vision research.

After a brief hiatus – thanks Covid – Comic Vision is coming back better than ever! Taking place in Toronto on October 27th and in Vancouver on November 4th, Comic Vision 2022 is not to be missed!
