Emily Hampshire To Host Live-Streamed Show To Benefit The Actors Fund

Schitt’s Creek star Emily Hampshire is set to host new weekly live-streamed talk-show Humpday With Hampshire to raise money for The Actors Fund.

This new series will raise money for emergency financial assistance and other services for entertainment and performing arts professionals who have been impacted by COVID-19. According to the press release, the show will live-stream weekly until film, TV and theater productions are back up and running.

The show will premiere this Wednesday, April 1st, on The Actors Fund YouTube channel and will feature virtual interviews with celebrities in their homes. Humpday With Hampshire will feature quarantine-themed games including “Show Us Your Junk (Drawer)”, “What is your quarROUTINE”, and “Phone a Friend Roulette.” All viewer donations will go directly to The Actors Fund.

“I couldn’t ask for a better creative distraction than hosting a show that not only helps raise money for an important cause, but also lets me connect with a dream team roster of guests without having to leave my apartment or even put on pants!” says Hampshire in the press release. “There’s such an insane amount of stress in the world right now, and if we can do something a little fun for all the stir-crazy people out there and help the industry, that means everything to me.”

Be sure to catch the show this Wednesday here.
