The upcoming variety show — the sixth annual event — will be shot in front of a live audience in early 2018 in Los Angeles and will become available to stream Netflix worldwide shortly thereafter.
Musical and comedic talent for the 2018 show has yet to be announced. In past years, Hilarity for Charity has featured appearances by Snoop Dogg, Miley Cyrus, Amy Schumer, Jim Gaffigan and James Franco.
Hilarity for Charity aims to inspire change and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease among millennials. Since its inception in 2012, HFC has raised over $7 million in funds for the cause.
Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen (pictured above) will executive produce Hilarity for Charity’s Los Angeles variety show alongside their fellow founding board members, Matthew Bass, Raffi Adlan and Tum Cohl.
Rogen announced the deal in a tweet:
I'm thrilled to announce that Netflix has joined HILARITY FOR CHARITY as a presenting sponsor and will stream our next variety show!!! Yay!!
