Newsflash: Comedy Kills Malaria

Ed Helms is one of many comedians who have taken on the fight against malaria. Stars from The Office, 30 Rock, and other shows have come together to spread awareness for this deadly disease. Malaria No More, an advocacy campaign dedicated to ending malaria in Africa by 2015, has created a series of hilarious videos and "PSA"s to educate people about malaria.

Helms has said that it is difficult to blend comedy and awareness of malaria because it is easy to diminish the reality of the lives of millions of people in Africa, but he believes that comedy is one of the greatest tools to get a message across.

Comedians coming together for a good cause. Let's help end malaria by 2015.
