The "Mad Men" star has signed up to host the "We Hate Hurricanes" event next month at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Comedians Will Ferrell, Aziz Ansari and Sarah Silverman will join Hamm onstage, and the audience will also be entertained with performances from rocker Beck and other yet to be announced acts.

All proceeds from the show will benefit AmeriCares, a disaster relief aid organization that provides immediate medical response after emergencies and long-term humanitarian assistance. "We Hate Hurricanes" will take place just two days before "12.12.12" -- a star-studded Sandy benefit concert that will be held at New York's Madison Square Garden.
