Seth Rogen is about to bring his particular brand of comedy to Netflix for a philanthropic variety show. The sixth annual Hilarity for Charity event will bring together a ton of the comedy world's fan-favorite heavy hitters for one awesome affair, and we couldn't be more excited about the lineup. In addition to Seth Rogen as the central headliner, the special will also include icons like Thor: Ragnarok actor Jeff Goldblum (who will undoubtedly bring all of his stuttering perfection with him), as well as The Muppets. Excited? Well, it only gets better from there.
The cool celebrity cameos and appearances do not stop there. In addition to Seth Rogen, Jeff Goldblum, and The Muppets' various chararacters, Hilarity for Charity has also enlisted the comedy chops of Big Mouth stars John Mulaney and Nick Kroll, as well as Sarah Silverman. Additionally, the special will also welcome SNL's Michael Che, The Office's Craig Robinson, Girls Trip breakout star Tiffany Haddish, Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen, The Big Sick's Kumail Nanjiani, and Daily Show correspondent Michelle Wolf. Sure, that list was a mouthful, but it also promises a comedy style for every taste, and what's more, these entertainers will make us laugh while helping raise awareness about Alzheimer's disease.
If you want a full rundown of all of the comedic talent as only Seth Rogen himself could deliver it, then check out the full trailer for the Hilarity for Charity special below to see it for yourself.
Seth Rogen's Netflix special is the latest in a long line of comedy outings that the streaming platform has picked up over the last couple of years. Stand-up comedy and other laugh-filled specials have become hot commodities for the streaming giant, which has invested heavily in comedians like Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer, to name a few. Additionally, Netflix has also been showcasing some exciting and off-kilter choices with fan-favorites like Oh, Hello, starring John Mulaney and Nick Kroll. Now, with one of the brains behind Superbad and Pineapple Express entering the equation, it looks like Netflix seems keen to reassert its dominance in the home entertainment comedy landscape. (Note that Judd Apatow, who produced Superbad and Pineapple Express, also has his own stand-up special.)
Seth Rogen's Netflix comedy event will drop on the streaming service in April.
