If laughter truly is the best medicine, then we could all use a heaping dose — and luckily it looks like we’re going to get it. Some of Hollywood’s hottest comedians have teamed up with former comedian Bryon Allen‘s “Feeding America Comedy Festival” to give us the feel goods we so desperately need.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The three-hour event will include pre-recorded comedy segments from Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and Billy Crystal. Comedians including Marc Maron, Kenan Thompson, Margaret Cho and Marlan Wayans are also scheduled to contribute.”
Allen’s Entertainment Studios organized the event which will raise funds to go toward Feeding America. The event is also co-produced by Funny or Die.
“In partnership with Feeding America, my comedian friends and all of us at Allen Media Group are pleased to announce this global live-streaming comedy event on May 9th,” Allen said in a statement. “Laughter is often the best medicine, and we are extremely motivated to bring attention to issues of food insecurity, and to assist in providing meals to families across the country who are financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The festival will be live-streamed on the Allen Media Group television networks Comedy.TV and The Weather Channel from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET on May 9.
