More Stars Play D&D for Comic Relief

Hot on the heels of their recent fund raising success with Comics Play Dungeons and Dragons, Comic Relief and Wizards of The Coast have teamed up to present more celebrities playing even more Dungeons and Dragons for charity. The D&D Live 2020: Roll w/ Advantage event will be live via DND Live Portal between June 18th to June 20th. It's all happening live in the US, so you may have to stay up a little later if you're in Europe.

Events include:

  • Funny people like Thomas Middleditch, Brian Posehn, and Kevin Sussman will work together to solve problems or, more likely, cause some hilarious new ones.
  • WWE Superstars Alexa Bliss, Tyler Breeze, Dio Maddin, Ember Moon, and Xavier Woods will contend with the beefcake destroyer Jeremy Crawford, a.k.a. Principal Rules Designer for D&D.
  • Deborah Ann Woll will lead a group of actors—including Amy Acker, Janina Gavankar, and Matthew Lillard, and Sam Richardson—in improvising a way to help people in a fantasy world not that different from ours.
  • And principal D&D writer Chris Perkins takes players new to D&D—including Felicia Day, Brett Gelman, David Harbour, Brandon Routh, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, and Martin Starr—through adventures sure to de-mystify the hobby for all who tune in.
