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.
