Comedians have become a great source of entertainment over the past couple of weeks. From streaming live gigs to creating daily videos, podcasts, and sketches, comics across the globe have been giving us a laugh through these tough times - and all for free.
Now, in order to bring even more laughter to the world, and to bring a little relief to comedians in need during this difficult time, an all-star comedy line-up has presented itself for an incredible online gig.
Ray Romano, Iliza Shlesinger, Daniel Sloss, Nikki Glaser, Bill Burr, Marc Maron, and many more comics will be performing at Laugh Aid on Saturday, April 4, 2020, at 16:00 PST (23:00 GMT).
Produced in partnership with Comedy Gives Back, Laugh Lounge, Starburns Audio, All Things Comedy, Earwolf and Comedy Central, the goal of Laugh Aid is to entertain the socially-distanced world while supporting the comedy community.
