Seth Rogen’s sixth annual Alzheimer fundraiser “Hilarity For Charity” will stream globally on Netflix this year making it the first time the event will be broadcast. Every year Rogen’s highly anticipated event brings together an A-list of Rogen’s comedy friends to help raise awareness and money to combat Alzheimer’s Disease. Seth Rogen and his friends combine stand-up, sketches and music into an outrageous comedy special that could only come from the mind of Seth.
Hilarity for Charity® is a nonprofit movement, led by Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen, dedicated to raising awareness, inspiring change, and accelerating progress in Alzheimer’s care, research, and support through the engagement of millennials.
This year’s killer line up includes: Tiffany Haddish, Sarah Silverman, Michelle Wolf, John Mulaney, James Corden, The Muppets, Post Malone, Nick Kroll, Kumail Nanjiani, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Che, Craig Robinson & The Nasty Delicious. The event will film this Saturday, March 24 at The Hollywood Palladium.
“We started the Los Angeles variety show six years ago in order to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s, a disease that has touched so many families including my own. Our goal is to educate a younger audience and ultimately create the next generation of advocates for the cause,” said HFC Co-Founder Lauren Miller Rogen. “I am so thrilled to be able to share this year’s show with an even larger audience through our partnership with Netflix and are proud to have them as a partner.”
Funds raised are directed to help families struggling with Alzheimer’s care, increase support groups nationwide, and fund cutting edge research. HFC has raised over $7 million over the years with great events including a bar mitzvah for buddy James Franco in 2015.
