Brian Posehn is RETURNING to Gimme Metal for a weekly #GrandpasMMetalStash! Brian’s been a huge fan of heavy music since he was a kid. That was a long time ago. Grandpa’s Metal Stash is all about playing all of his favorite shit, old and new. Mostly old. The idea is you’re sitting on his floor with headphones on for two hours. Enjoy the ride!
LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Laughter is healing, and during the Covid-19 public health crisis a renowned group of celebrity comedians, including Whitney Cummings, Jim Gaffigan, Ken Jeong, Adam Sandler and many equally famous and talented comedians will be performing live, April 4, 2020 at 4 p.m. PST, via livestream to lift the nation’s spirits as well as to raise money for an emergency relief fund.
All participating performers agree, the nation needs an evening of laughter and the goals of Comedy Gives Back LAUGH AID are to both entertain the world as we sequester in our homes, while also supporting the standup comedian community that lives and breathes with a live audience but has been sidelined with venues closed this Spring.
Additional celebrity comedians performing live include, Dave Attell, Joel Kim Booster, Bill Burr, Dane Cook, Ken Jeong, Anthony Jeselnik, Jessica Kirson, Bert Kreischer, Howie Mandel, Marc Maron, Big Jay Oakerson, Patton Oswalt, Tom Papa, Ray Romano, Jeff Ross, Iliza Shlesinger, The Sklar Brothers, Bob Saget, Amanda Seales, Dan Soder, David Spade, Taylor Tomlinson, Gina Yashere and others. See www.comedygivesback.com for the lineup (subject to change).
In difficult times like these, many of us (including medical science) find laughter is the best medicine. While bringing a few hours of much needed relief to a distressed nation, Comedy Gives Back aims to support its peers that may find themselves in less than comical situations.
