The read is to raise money for CORE, a charitable organisation providing emergency relief amid the coronavirus pandemic, and the Reform Alliance, which aims to 'dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system'.
In a statement, host Dane Cook said: "We're so excited to finally bring you our Fast Times table read in what I must say is the coolest virtual classroom I've ever been in.

Penn - who founded CORE and appeared in the original movie - said: "On behalf of our dedicated team at CORE, I'm so appreciative of the support Dane has given and continues to give to our work.
"I'm always game for a giggle. So to gather remotely for a night of laughs with so many talented folks while providing CORE with much-needed resources to continue our vital work - then consider us fully onboard to play!"
It is not yet known who will play each character, however, we do know that Penn will not reprise his role as Jeff Spicoli.
