The gist: "Today's biggest names in comedy are safely at home and ready to help their fellow comedians who have lost gigs and income due to the coronavirus. It's a great night, for a great cause, under not so great conditions."
Specifically, it's raising money for the Comedy Gives Back COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund:
While many people can work from home, this is not an option for comics. If you've had gigs canceled due to this pandemic, we're here to help.
The intent of this fund is to provide approved applicants with a one-time grant to minimize financial hardships caused by COVID-19. These modest grants are meant to give immediate relief to stand-up comics who have lost gigs and income due to recent shutdowns.
You can watch Comedy Gives Back online via Twitch, YouTube, the Laugh Lounge and on cable via Comedy Central. Check out the announced Laugh Aid lineup below:
