Southern California’s Comedy Store will stream a live, three-hour video showcase for comedians on April 21 as a fundraiser for The Comedy Store Family Fund, a charitable effort newly-taken on during COVID-19.
The Comedy Store Family Fund kicks off April 21 at 5PM PT / 8PM ET
Its first hour will be hosted by Whitney Cummings and feature comedians Chris D’Elia, Bobby Lee, Andrew Santino and Tim Dillon.
The second hour, hosted by Tom Segura, will feature Joey Diaz, Bert Kreischer and Theo Von.
The final hour will see host Neal Brennan welcome Bill Burr, Donnell Rawlings and a special guest.
The special evening’s three, hour-long episodes will stream live on YouTube, Twitch and http://www.comedystore.com, followed by on-demand availability via the Comedy Store Channel on Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Roku and Xbox.
Audiences can donate directly to The Comedy Store Family Fund by text message through an interactive feature during the specials.
“The Comedy Store wants to spread some joy as everyone is sheltering in place…”
The venue shared in announcing the event. “So, we will bring a little bit of The Store to you, at home and we will get through this, together.”
Club authorities say they have continued to pay all their staff since having to close March 13, but the times ahead are unclear.
