THIS JUST IN: Late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Fallon has signed on to headline the Bob Costas event to benefit SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center.

The event, which is the 22nd annual, begins at 8 p.m., April 17 at the Fox Theatre.

Fallon is a Saturday Night Live alumni with a versatile comedic style that has enabled him to be involved in a diverse line-up of television and film projects. He currently hosts Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, which airs locally at 11:35 on KSDK-TV (Channel 5).

Costas’s benefit has a history of attracting all-star comedians — past headliners have included Billy Crystal, Jay Leno, Ray Romano, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Murray, Gary Shandling and Kathleen Madigan.

The music act for the event has not yet been announced.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $100 and are on sale through Cardinal Glennon or by calling 314-577-5605. Sponsorship levels which include pre-show dinner options are also available.
