Byron — who’s partnering with Funny or Die to produce the benefit — says viewers can expect more than just cookie-cutter material from the comics and actors. He tells us he gave them free rein to get creative in 2-3 minutes … and it’s going to produce lotsa laugh-out-loud moments.
Some other big names set to appear on the 2-hour comedy special include Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman, Judd Apatow, Jack Black, Whitney Cummings, Whoopi Goldberg, George Lopez, Marc Maron, JB Smoove and Marlon Wayans.
‘Feeding America’ encompasses a nationwide network of 200 food banks, and Byron told us the majority of them are facing increased demand for food and supplies due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The special airs this Sunday, May 10 at 7 PM on NBC, the Weather Channel, Comedy.TV and the app Local Now.
