Hilarity for Charity, a movement run under the leadership of Seth Rogen and his wife Lauren Miller, will celebrate its fourth anniversary this year, and it will be marked with James Franco's Bar Mitzvah.

The annual fundraiser will feature performances by popular celebrities like Paul Rudd, Bruno Mars, Tenacious D, Patton Oswalt, Aziz Ansari, Judd Apatow, The Backstreet Boys, Samuel L Jackson, Kevin Hart, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Silverman and "Weird Al" Yankovic.

The show hopes to raise awareness regarding Alzheimer's disease and inspire many to donate for the Alzheimer's Association. The couple started the trend of using comedy for the sake of charity, after the disease affected Miller's mother.

The celebrities who will be performing at the event are: Bill Hader, Kyle Kinane, Al Madrigal, Ron Funches, Justin Willman, Seth Rogen, James Franco, HAIM, Miley Cyrus, Paul Rudd, Bruno Mars, Tenacious D, Patton Oswalt, Aziz Ansari, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Silverman, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Judd Apatow, The Backstreet Boys, Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Ty Burrell, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nick Kroll, Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, Sarah Silverman and many others.
