Comic Relief '09: Do Something Funny For Money

Thursday, 29 January 2009
Comic Relief 2009 (or Red Nose Day, if you prefer) is scheduled to touchdown on 13 March. As usual, there will be a mix of games, comedy sketches, fundraising events and television specials to help raise cash for disadvantaged people in Africa and the UK. Confirmed treats for RND09 are:
  • David Tennant (yay!) co-hosting the first live hour with Davina McCall (ugh!)
  • "Let's Dance For Comic Relief" with T4's Steve Jones and Claudia Winkleman.
  • Celebrities climbing Mount Kilimanjaro; namely, Gary Barlow, Fearne Cotton, Denise Van Outen, Alesha Dixon, Cheryl Cole, Kimberly Walsh, Ben Shephard, Chris Moyles and Ronan Keating.
  • Top Of The Tops with Fearne Cotton.
  • A Two Pints Of Lager & A Packet Of Crisps special. Oh, joy.
  • The Saturdays will release the official RND charity single (a cover of Depeche Mode's "Just Can't Get Enough")
  • Gavin & Stacey special.
  • "Comic Relief Does The Apprentice"; where celebs like Carol Vorderman, Jack Dee, Gerald Ratner, Patsy Palmer, Michelle Mone, Ruby Wax, Fiona Phillips, Jonathan Ross, Alan Carr and Gok Wan attempt to make a television advert for Sir Alan Sugar.
I may even "live blog" RND09 this year and set-up some kind of fundraising thing myself. I decided that just seconds ago, so any suggestions or brainwaves about what I can do... just let me know!
