‘Hilarity for Charity’ Trailer: Seth Rogen Saves the World With a Netflix Special — Watch

The stand-up special raises money for Alzheimer's awareness.

Seth Rogen's Hilarity for Charity

A day after announcing that it has acquired Seth Rogen, Netflix has released the trailer for the actor and comedian’s “Hilarity for Charity.” The stand-up special, which raises funds for Alzheimer’s awareness, was co-founded by Rogen’s wife, Laura Miller, in 2012. Watch the trailer below.

It isn’t just Rogen who appears onstage: Tiffany Haddish, Sarah Silverman, Michelle Wolf, John Mulaney, Michael Che, David Chang, Ike Barinholtz, Chelsea Peretti, Kumail Nanjiani, Jon Lovitz, Jeff Goldblum, Sacha Baron Cohen, Nick Kroll, Post Malone, Chris Hardwick, and Craig Robinson & The Nasty Delicious all feature as well.

“I’ve reached my threshold on dick jokes,” Rogen says onstage before catching himself. “I’m joking — there’s way more dick jokes.”

In its April Fools’ Day joke about “acquiring” Rogen, Netflix described the event as “the first project where Netflix was able to successfully extract comedy directly from the actor’s mind.” “Hilarity for Charity” premieres on Netflix this Friday, April 6.
