Happy turkey day! How will you be celebrating Thanksgiving this time around? Maybe with a nice homecooked dinner, surrounded by those near and dear; or maybe, you'll be kicking back on the sofa, as another NFL game plays on your screen. As for our favorite comedians?

The Laugh Factory will be taking the cherished time to give back to the community, as they ring in the holidays with their 40th annual free Thanksgiving dinner. Of course, though, things will be a bit different this time around. So, what can you expect exactly?

For starters, expect a whole lot of laughs, as comedians Tiffany Haddish, Dane Cook, and Tim Allen are set to headline the November 26 event. Set to kick off from 1 to 5 p.m., the star-studded event - which will actually be taking place outside Hollywood's Laugh Factory venue - will adhere to social distancing, all while blessing us with yummy food and a chuckle or two.

So, what's on the menu this time around? Or should we say, what have our favorite funny guys cooked up for us, literally? While the theatre's annual event typically calls for a delicious buffet, this year's turkey (and stuffing, of course) will actually be pre-packaged to go, adhering to safety guidelines.

"Please invite anyone you may know who is alone for the holiday to get a wonderful Thanksgiving meal and some comedy that will be food for the soul," Laugh Factory owner, Jamie Masada explained in a heartfelt statement. As he put it, "We believe laughter is healing, and we need laughter now more than ever.”

Safe to say, we couldn't agree more, Jamie. On that note, we wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving, from the family. Now, excuse us, we've got some cranberry sauce that's calling our name.
