YouTube’s first-ever Comedy Week begins May 19, running through the 25, and to start it off right the video-sharing website is presenting The Big Live Comedy Show. Some of the comedy world’s biggest names will be appearing live, including Sarah Silverman, Seth Rogen and The Lonely Island.
Other comedy acts scheduled to perform are Epic Rap Battles of History, the cast of Comedy Central’s “Workaholics,” Garfunkel and Oates, Reggie Watts and more.
Before the event begins, the performers will walk the rest carpet during a live pre-show, which is presented as part of the stream. What will these funny people have to say? It being a comedy event, there’s sure to be a ridiculous fashion choice or two.
The pre-show kicks off at 8 p.m. ET, with The Big Live Comedy Show beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
