One highlight will be titled “G.R.O.A.T.,” or “The Greatest Roast of All Time: Tom Brady,” a roast of the football legend hosted by roastmaster Jeff Ross himself, which will be filmed by Netflix. Additionally, Chris Rock will host table reads of his favorite films; the cast of Big Mouth will perform at the Greek Theater, as will the creators of I Think You Should Leave; Seth Rogen will host another variety show benefiting the Alzheimer’s charity Hilarity For Charity; and more.
