Crain Ferguson (The Craig Ferguson Show), Whitney Cummings (Unforgettable) and Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) join Emmy and Tony-winning, Academy Award-nominated actress and animal advocate Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie) and her co-star June Diane Raphael (Grace and Frankie) among other comedic guests to bring the laughs to “Wait Wait…Don’t Kill Me 2!,”loosely inspired by NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!.” This annual fundraiser, hosted by actor Paul Scheer (The League), will take place Friday, April 27, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. at the Broad Stage Theatre in Santa Monica. All proceeds will support VFTA as they continue their fight for creating respect and empathy for animals through education, rescue, legislation and advocacy.
Said Melya Kaplan, Executive Director of VFTA, “We are grateful to our returning all-star cast with Lily Tomlin, June Diane Raphael, Whitney Cummings, Casey Wilson, Craig Ferguson and Paul Scheer as host. It brings together some of funniest people on earth to raise money to help the Voice For The Animals Foundation (VFTA) continue their fight to give a voice to the animals. It is a fun evening of hilarity and I hope the public will join our efforts to take care of our animals.”
