Coronavirus quarantine may be continuing on, but get ready to get some laughs in on Sunday night regardless.
The two-hour special, called “Feeding America Comedy Festival,” will be co-hosted by Allen, Kenan Thompson, Tiffany Haddish, and Billy Crystal. It will feature pre-recorded segments from Kevin Hart, Chris Rock, George Lopez, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, and Jack Black.
The list goes on, but also taking part in the special will be Will Ferrell, Will Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, Tina Fey, Dane Cook, and many more. Allen created this event to address the problem of food insecurity due to the COVID-19 global outbreak.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, the special will raise money for the charity “Feeding America.” The organization has 200 food banks across the nation.
Allen mentioned that his first call was to Kevin Hart, where he asked him if he wanted to participate. From there, the comedian called Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, Billy Crystal, and Tiffany Haddish. He eventually called every comedian to take part in this special event.
The “Feeding America Comedy Festival,” co-produced by Entertainment Studios and Funny Or Die, will air from 7-9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
If you don’t have access to that channel, people can watch the comedy special on Comedy.TV, The Weather Channel, as well as on the streaming app Local Now.
While watching the special, viewers will be encouraged to donate to Feeding America.
