Deets: Comedy icon Will Ferrell and rock superstar Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers are throwing a party. A quinceanera party to be exact. The Red Hot Benefit Comedy + Music Show & Quinceanera hosted by Ferrell with his Funny Or Die team and musically curated by Smith will be a star-studded extravaganza held at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 29th at the historic Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles. The show will include performances from the Red Hot Chili Peppers plus other musical acts and comedy from the hottest comedians.
For Ferrell the beneficiary is Cancer for College, the charity started by his USC fraternity brother Craig Pollard over 20 years ago. The charity has granted over $2 million while helping more than 1,000 cancer survivors realize their dream of a college education. For Smith it’s the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, a non profit organization founded by Chad’s Red Hot Chili Peppers bandmate and bass player Flea, who strive to address the decrease in arts education in schools while providing cultural enrichment to the community by offering private music lessons at a reasonable cost and granting scholarships to children in need, providing free lessons and instruments.
