ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Celebrities got into the swing of the fifth annual 'Hilarity for Charity' by dressing up for actor and film maker Seth Rogen's event, which raises awareness of Alzheimer's among young people, gives support to families struggling with Alzheimer's and also raises money for scientific research. The event held at the Hollywood Palladium saw Rogen and his wife Lauren Miller dressed up as characters from Nintendo's Mario Bros and Scott Eastwood dressing up as his father's character Joe from the iconic Sergio Leone Westerns. Rogen, speaking on the red carpet, explained "I mean our whole goal was to make Alzheimer's something that younger people are talking about and I think the fact that Snoop Dogg is playing our Alzheimer's charity is a very big step in the right direction." Snoop Dogg headlined the show and performed 'Young, Wild and Free' alongside Rogen. Other performers included Joseph Gordon-Levitt performing 'The Silver Dagger' with his wife Tasha McCauley dressed in a blood-soaked cowboy outfit. Courtney Love sang The Rocky Horror Show's 'Time Warp' and Nicholas Petricca sang his Walk the Moon hit 'Shut Up and Dance' and performed Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' with Rogen. According to a press release from the organisers, the event raised $1.6 million for the charity.
