Gabriel Iglesias will appear at the Denver Improv next Wednesday in a fundraiser for Caleb Medley, an aspiring comic who is hospitalized after being shot in the head during the Aurora theater rampage Friday.
Iglesias doesn't know Caleb, whose wife Katie escaped uninjured from the massacre that killed 12 and injured 58. Katie gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday.
After the boy, named Hugo, was born, Caleb's brother, Seth, told reporters that Caleb, 23, is making small improvements.
The couple doesn't have health insurance, and his brother said recovery could take several years and generate "insurmountable" bills.
