Comedy Gives Back will produce a 24-hour international digital telethon next month — with comedians such as Kevin Nealon, Dane Cook and Adam Devine seen above promoting it — in live comedy shows in New York City, Los Angeles, London and Sydney, and wherever you have a screen to livestream it via Dailymotion. All to benefit Malaria No More (www.MalariaNoMore.org), a charitable organization striving to end deaths from malaria.
Talent lined up to perform so far includes: Greg Behrendt, Adam Bloom, Jim Breuer, Ronny Chieng, Dane Cook, Rhys Darby, Adam Hills, Marc Maron, Rove McManus, Eugene Mirman, and Kevin Nealon.

Dailymotion will also be the sole distributor of the live stand up shows Video On Demand following the free 24 hour live-stream on Nov. 6-7. VOD content will be available on November 9.
“We are so inspired by the comedy community who has rallied to help make our vision a reality to create a day of laughter, to raise money and awareness for Malaria No More,” says Zoe Friedman, Co-Founder of Comedy Gives Back. “And with the telethon being distributed digitally, a donation to this worthy cause is simply a click away.”
Friedman’s other co-founders are Amber J. Lawson and Jodi Lieberman.
