Red Nose Day, the U.K.’s #1 television fundraising event, is coming to America in a spectacular star-studded special live on Thursday, May 21 (8-11 p.m. ET) on NBC who will close out the 2014-15 regular season with a three-hour live Red Nose Day charity telethon. Inspired and supported by Comic Relief U.K. – the British charity behind Red Nose Day – NBC will televise the benefit featuring hilarious stand-up comedy, clever parodies, sketch comedy, incredible music performances from A-list artists and short, compelling films about the cause.
In addition, Funny or Die, the award-winning top destination for comedy on the web and producer of high-quality content across numerous platforms, has partnered with NBC to create original content for the special so that only means it will be worth watching!
