Created por Oscar nominated writer-director Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral), Red Nose día is a fundraising campaign dedicated to lifting kids out of poverty. Run por Comic Relief, Red Nose día became a cultural phenomenon in the U.K. and has raised más than $1 billion globally in the last 25 years.
The campaign came to the U.S. for the first time in 2015, and raised más than $23 million, with the money at work in all 50 states and 15 countries internationally in programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy and educated.
The star-studded NBC special will feature stand-up performances, sketch comedy, short films and música performances. In 2015, más than 100 celebridades lent their support to Red Nose Day's first U.S. campaign, with Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts, Jack Black, Pharrell, Blake Shelton and Ed Sheeran among the stars who participated in last year's NBC special.
The money raised por Red Nose día in 2016 will help support projects in some of the neediest parts of the U.S. and the world. This year's partner charities include Boys & Girls Club of America; charity:water; Children’s Health Fund; Covenant House; Feeding America; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; National Council of La Raza; National Urban League; Oxfam America; Save the Children; and The Global Fund.
Speaking about last year's first iteration of Red Nose día in the U.S., Curtis previously told The Hollywood Reporter, "I was kind of startled and thrilled at how many famous people, if tu give them something fun o funny to do, are really happy to do that. I'm always really startled por the willingness of people who are famous to go the extra mile. We always want to give them something they want to do, rather than something they feel they ought to do."
