Watch Will Ferrell and Chad Smith host an all-star drum off at the Red Hot Benefit

The pair decided not to face each other on the skins this time around

Comedy legend, Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers Drummer, Chad Smith, co-hosted the Red Hot Benefit Comedy + Music Show & Quinceanera in Los Angeles.

The pair, who have often been told they look almost identical, previously faced off in a drum off on Jimmy Fallon’s show, which Ferrell won.

Speaking at The Red Hot Benefit, he said: “That was a great night for me Chad, when I beat you, a professional drummer.”


However this time around they set up a team drum off, featuring the likes of Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters, Tommy Lee and Stewart Copeland from The Police.

The night was raising money for two charities – Ferrell’s Cancer for College, which gives cancer survivors a chance at a college education and Smith’s Silverlake Conservatory of Music, which was founded by bandmate Flea, to increase teaching around music in schools.

The event, which is being live-streamed by Ferrell’s comedy site, Funny Or Die, will feature musical performances from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Devo, plus comedians such as Nick Offerman and Jim Gaffigan.
