Hollywood celebrities have been enlisted to help promote Obamacare with a "Tell a Friend — Get Covered" campaign in a live event.

Beginning Thursday at 12 p.m. the campaign, in partnership with Will Farrell's Funny or Die entertainment firm, will air an eight-hour variety show on YouTune to educate and inform Americans about the new healthcare law, The Huffington Post is reporting.

Jennifer Hudson, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Banks are scheduled to take part in the event.

Story continues below video.

The goal is to encourage those in the 18 to 34 age group to enroll in Obamacare. The administration's goal is that 38 percent of those enrolled are in that age group, but so far less than a quarter have signed up, according to numbers released Monday.
