Comic Relief 2019
The fun starts at 7pm as the biggest comedy party on the planet is broadcast live from Elstree Television Studios, hosted by Sir Lenny Henry, Paddy McGuinness, Emma Willis, Romesh Ranganathan, Rob Beckett, Alesha Dixon, Clara Amfo, Zoe Ball, Joe Sugg, David Tennant and other special guests.
Prepare for a mammoth night of live comedy, sketches, music acts, fundraising films and more.
Expect special treats from the likes of Alan Partridge, Freddie Flintoff, the cast of BBC Three’s Famalam, Mamma Mia, Bodyguard, One Red Nose Day and a Wedding and much, much more.
Viewers will also be treated to exclusive performances from the cast of Only Fools And Horses The Musical and Magic Mike Live. There will be a special Comic Relief sketch from the cast of BBC Three’s Famalam and a number of spectacular live music performances. Plus, the cast of Mischief Theatre will perform a live magic trick - what could possibly go wrong?
Expect the unexpected as more surprises and special guests are yet to be revealed for what promises to be the most unpredictable night of TV tomfoolery of the year. Plus throughout the night there will be a look at how Comic Relief makes a huge difference to those living unimaginably tough lives in the UK and across the world’s poorest communities, and how money raised this Red Nose Day will help to change the lives of many more.
