As we are all isolated due to the coronavirus pandemic, some celebrities are joining forces to raise money for a COVID-19 emergency relief fund.
Laugh Aid is slated for Saturday and the goal is to keep the world entertained with technology, while supporting the comedy community that lives and breaths with a live audience.
The comedians will create content specifically for Laugh Aid through a special edition podcast, interview, or glimpse into their family life during this crazy time and we’ll bring it to your homes, from their homes.
Among those scheduled to appear: Ray Romano, Iliza Shlesinger, Howie Mandel, Nikki Glaser, Bill Burr, Marc Maron, Patton Oswalt, The Sklar Brothers, Tom Papa, Bert Kreischer, Nikki Glaser, Dane Cook, Jeffrey Ross, Jessica Kirson, Anthony Jeselnik, Big Jay Oakerson, Dan Soder and many more.
