Will Ferrell, Beck perform at charity event
“It’s kind of sad that only 1% of tonight’s proceeds are going to charity,” comedian Chelsea Peretti joked at Monday’s Hurricane Sandy benefit in Los Angeles.
Dubbed “We Hate Hurricanes,” the Club Nokia event was hosted by thesps Jon Hamm and Adam Scott and featured performances by Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman and Aziz Ansari.
Ferrell, sporting a mustache and suspenders, revived his air juggling stint from “The Office” (“I was halfway down the 5 and realized I forgot my equipment!”) while Silverman, there to “save” the show, said fundraisers often remind her of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“They grant these kids anything they dream up, except for not dying.”
L.A. folk-rocker Beck rounded out the night’s festivities with a stripped down, acoustic set.
“We are the anti-comic relief,” he snickered beneath a dark cowboy hat.
Ticket proceeds from the event went to non-profit disaster relief org AmeriCares.
