Jackbox Games Hosts Celebrity Jackbox With Charlize Theron Tonight

Jackbox Games

Jackbox Games, studio behind The Jackbox Party Pack series, will be hosting its final Celebrity Jackbox event tonight to raise money for organizations currently fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The celebrity lineup for the final episode includes Charlize Theron (Monster, Mad Max: Fury Road, Bombshell), Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is the New Black, Crashing, With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus), Joel McHale (Community, The Soup, Card Sharks), Aisha Tyler (Archer, Whose Line Is It Anyway?), and “one more celebrity guest to be announced soon.”

All donations made will be given to The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP), CARE, and the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF)’s #TogetherforHer initiative. The organizations support the fight against domestic violence towards women and girls during the time of COVID-19 lockdowns.

Jackbox Games initially started the series in early May and pledged to donate $100,000 to the featured charity in each episode, such as Direct Relief, Save the Children, and more. Each episode featured different celebrities including Jeff Goldblum, Jack Black, Olivia Wilde, and more.

The final Celebrity Jackbox episode airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET on Facebook, Mixer, Twitch, and YouTube.

The studio’s next game, The Jackbox Party Pack 7, is scheduled to launch later this fall with two out of the five games announced for it so far: Quiplash 3 and The Devils and the Details.
