It was our hope that the biggest and brightest names in comedy would be coming out to do big fundraiser in the fight against COVID-19. Indeed, they have and continued to do so.
COVID Is No Joke will be a jam-packed hour of a comedy variety live-stream spanning stand-up, stories, sketches, etc. from the likes of:
Elizabeth Banks, Ike Barinholtz, Jack Black and Tenacious D, Wayne Brady, D’Arcy Carden, Kristin Chenoweth, Tom Cotter, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass, Will Ferrell, Gal Gadot, Kyle Gass, Linda Hamilton, Chelsea Handler, Mindy Kaling, Kerri Louise, Jonathan Mangum, Patton Oswalt, Natalia Reyes, Adam Scott, Finn Straley, Paige Weldon, Jenny Yang and more with actor/director/producer and Americares own Tony Goldwyn set to host.
That line-up really spans so many different corners of comedy and even includes names of comedians that we really dig that you ought to know going forward.
The funds raised will go to providing essential equipment and support (including mental health) for frontline health workers here in the U.S. and across the globe. $100K worth of donations has already been guaranteed FYI.
You can support Americares now or during the event by making a donation on americares.org or by texting “JOKE” to 20222 to make a $25 donation.
