Seth McFarlane is a comedy master act, and many of you know him as the genius behind Family Guy and many other comedic powerhouses. Last night, the comedian was honored at Variety’s 3rd Annual Power of Comedy Event presented by Bing. He took home the Power of Comedy Award for his countless contributions to the field of comedy and all things funny. But that wasn’t all the fun-filled night had to offer. In addition to the honor received by Seth, numerous comedians took to the stage to deliver their funniest bits. All profits garnered from ticket sales went directly to the Noreen Fraser Foundation, an organization that funds women’s cancer research. What a good cause; we’re so happy the night was such a thriving success!
Bing’s ongoing campaign, “The Bing It On Challenge,” where the popular search engine asks participants if they prefer Google or Bing, was integrated into the show and proved to be quite successful. The fabulous event was hosted by Joel McHale, with special performances by Eric Andre, Owen Benjamin, Alex Borstein & Rachael MacFarlane, Chris D’Elia, Garfunkel & Oates, Seth Green, Anthony Jeselnik, Nick Kroll, Bill Maher, Patton Oswalt, Giovanni Ribisi, Paul Scheer, Max Greenfield, Amy Schumer, and that’s not even the complete list!
