NBC, Funny or Die, and Comic Relief Teaming Up for U.S. Red Nose Day

(via Deadline)

The gigantic UK comedy fundraiser known as Red Nose Day is making its way stateside, specifically to NBC with the help of Comic Relief and Funny or Die.

Featuring sketches, stand-up, and more from, undoubtedly, the biggest names possible, there will be a three hour show that will raise money for big charities. The names of performers and charities have yet to be announced, but Red Nose Day has been noted for raising over a $1 billion in donations.

Looks like they don’t need an old school telethon to run through the wee hours of the morning. We’ll see what they’ll pull off when the show goes down next spring.
