Remember Comic Relief?

Post by Marie5656 »

Anyone remember Comic Relief..from back in the 80's? Hosted by Billy Crystal, Robin Williams and Whoppie featured stand up comics doing a benefit "telethon" for charity. Folks called in pledges. Anyway, they are doing on this coming Saturday on HBO (check your local listings for time) to benefit New Orleans.

Remember Comic Relief?

Post by beautyful »

Obviously I don't remember the Comic Relief of which you speak (I'm from England) but thought I would chip in coz we have a similar thing, in fact its called the same...presented by Lenny Henry (if anyone knows who i mean) Its been going for years but I think they have stopped it now coz we have a lot of what you call Telethons in Britain (Children in need etc)

Anyway point of this was I wondered what your Comic Relief entailed? Whether it was similar to ours?
