When it was all said and done, more than $100,000 was raised. You can watch the special below.

We need to see more and more stuff like this during these trying times. Lots of people are obviously struggling and need all the help they can get.

People like Chappelle and Burr stepping up is a great thing for everybody involved. They’re arguably the two most famous comedians in the game right now.

They move the needle, and the fact they helped raise more than $100,000 for comedians in need is proof of that fact.

While the coronavirus pandemic has done a hell of a number on society, it has been awesome to see so many people step up and help.

There’s been no shortage of stars using their platforms to help others, and it’s a perfect reminder that Americans always look out for each other.

Props to Burr, Chappelle and everybody else involved. Hopefully, more people follow the great example they set!
