Actress Jennifer Lawrence will perform at a comedy variety show billed as a bipartisan push to get money out of politics that will be co-hosted by the actress alongside comedians Tig Notaro and Nikki Glaser.

Variety reports that the three will host “Unrigged Live!” a political comedy show that will feature New Orleans band The Preservation Hall All-Stars, former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner (D), and more guests that will be announced in the future.


The production will be put on by Triptyk Studios, a Broadway company behind shows including “An American in Paris,” “Oh, Hello” and “Amelie.”

“As far as I know, it’s the first event of its kind to bring together progressives from both sides to kick off what is going to be a long, hard fight,” said Triptyk’s Brian Swibel.

The event is also being organized by RepresentUs, a progressive organization opposed to large super PACs and fighting corruption in the campaign finance system.

RepresentUs bills itself as a bipartisan progressive organization that works with conservatives as well as liberals to fight corruption, and is billing the comedy show as a "bipartisan" variety show.

"We bring together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to pass powerful anti-corruption laws that stop political bribery, end secret money, and fix our broken elections," reads a statement on the group's website.

Lawrence has spoken in the past about the need to bring together both parties and end America's polarization.

“There needs to be a bridge,” the “Hunger Games” star said last year.

“There are issues affecting us as human beings, not as liberals and not as Republicans. We have to protect the foundation of this country, and acceptance,” she added.
