The 12-hour show, co-hosted by Pardo, Matt Belknap and Pat Francis, will stream live at www.pardcast.com from the ACME Theater in Los Angeles and benefits Smile Train, an international children’s charity that provides necessary surgery for those born with a cleft lip or palate. To date, this philanthropic event has raised over $55,000 for organization and they couldn’t be more grateful.
“We are only able to provide free cleft surgery for poor children around the world because of donors and supporters like Jimmy and his fans,” said Smile Train Executive Director, Priscilla Ma. “The Pardcast-A-Thon is a wonderful event and we are very thankful to have Jimmy as part of the Smile Train family.”
Confirmed guests at the Pardcast-A-Thon include Sarah Silverman, Andy Richter, Greg Behrendt, Walter Koenig and other surprise comedy stars that will be revealed during the event.
