Will Ferrell has announced the second installment of his ‘Best Night of Your Life’, an out-of-this-world night of music and comedy to benefit Cancer for College on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

The event will be hosted by Ferrell, who has recruited a star-studded lineup including comedians Jon Stewart, Hasan Minhaj, Jo Koy, Patti Harrison, Roy Wood Jr., Rory Scovel, plus a special appearance by SmartLess with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett. Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) has assembled an all-star musical lineup featuring Stefan Lessard (Dave Matthews Band), Beck, St. Vincent, Cindy Blackman Santana, Dogstar featuring Bret Domrose, Robert Mailhouse & Keanu Reeves, along with Jack Black and Fred Armisen who will perform as the one-time supergroup ‘Mike McCready and The Casual Acquaintances’, with additional performances by DJ White Shadow and Princess featuring Maya Rudolph and more specials guests on the way.

“Immediately upon completing our last show in 2018 I set out on a search of the cosmos. The mission was to find the most incredible lineup of talent this world has ever seen. I think we can comfortably say mission accomplished. For those of you saying, “but Will, we’ve seen you a lot over the last five years in successful films on popular streaming platforms and wildly funny TV appearances, I’m here to tell you that cloning is real. Shoutout to Bill Ferrell, you did a hell of a job in my absence.”

“My clones and I are super proud to be supporting the charity, Cancer for College,” said Will Ferrell. “I think we can all get on board with hating cancer and the terrible things that can come with it. For 30 years, this organization has provided need-based college

scholarships, educational experiences and medical debt relief to cancer survivors. All the proceeds from the show will benefit the cause.”

Tickets: presale tickets will be available beginning this Wednesday, August 9 at 10 am PDT via the Greek Theatre and Ticketmaster, with tickets going on sale to the general public this Friday, August 11 at 10 am PDT.

The event celebrates the 30th anniversary of Cancer for College, a non-profit that provides need-based college scholarships and educational experiences to cancer survivors. Cancer for College was founded in 1993 by three-time cancer survivor and double amputee Craig Pollard, Ferrell’s fraternity brother at the University of Southern California. “We are so thankful to our friend Will Ferrell and his talented group of friends for supporting our cause,” said Pollard. “The event proceeds will provide several hundred cancer survivors an opportunity to attend college and lower their medical debt.”
