Comedian Kevin Hart will host the relaunched Jerry Lewis telethon for muscular dystrophy.
The telethon was always held on labour day weekend but the new two-hour, star-studded virtual fundraiser event will air October 24th.
Hart says the telethon’s return is an incredible opportunity to bring back the work of Lewis, who helped make the telethon a TV tradition for decades and raised billions of dollars.
Lewis died from natural causes in 2017.
