Can't wait!!!!!

Lenny Henry in his once a year red suit....maybe he'll wave his arms and do Theopolous T Wildebeast too.....

And if we're really lucky his pointless, overweight, wife will come on and give us one of her hilarious...look at me, a big person pretending to be a small person...routines.


Think maybe I'll go grate my scrotum instead.

Wrong, and a very common misconception, and part of the reason I don`t particularly like Comic Relief.

Yes, a lot of the money goes to Africa, but that`s not all, it`s supposed to go to UK-based charities too, which it does, and does a lot of good work too. But everytime they advertise on the telly on the run-up to CR, they always show starving African kids, or African kids with AIDS. That to me is playing with people`s emotions, and I don`t like it. It says a lot about the attitude of the West these days when we get more worked up about problems thousands of miles away, and couldn`t care less about homelessness or poverty just outside in the street.

It also highlights a deeper problem I have, that of the West being made to feel "guilty" or "responsible". Too many times these days do we hear that we have to give money because we should feel "responsible" because we have so much, and other countries have so little. Why? Because I`ve been born in the "4th richest country" (which I don`t believe for a second, poverty is rife in the UK) I should give my money to other countries? I think not, especially when there`s so much in this country that needs sorting.

Besides, it smacks too much of being the "World`s Policeman" again, and I don`t like that feeling that everytime there`s trouble in the world, Britain will come running. Surely the US and Europe should stick their necks out once in a while too, but you never seem to hear much about it.

Anyway, rant over. My point is this:

Give to charity if you wish to. If not, never let anyone guilt trip you into it.

Of course you don't hear much about fundraising in other countries, you live in the uk. Last time i checked i don't think the uk were 1st place in the table of those that give aid to other countries. You are right for the wrong reasons. A lot of problems in the third world were *created* by british imperialism, so thats we (namely the british government and whoever else is responsible)should put our hands in our pockets... however the responsibilty shouldn't lie with those of us who have hardly any money to begin with. I work for the minimum wage, but i'll give what i can to any charity, at home or abroad, whenever i have the opportunity- because i know the situation won't change anytime soon so if i can help at least one person today, i'm pretty happy with that... no matter what side of the globe that person is on.

Hooray! Good to see.

Is Comic Relief live? Or is it pre-recorded.

It is my surname, but then again it's reasonably common.  I think everyone hates maths really, even if they claim to like it it's only because they are good at it...

NO! I adored it! I still read books on it and go to voluntary public lectures on Prime Numbers!

One the topic of Comic Relief - I hate to be a Scrooge, but I'd rather give 50 quid and not have it on telly meself, Still, I suppose if it's what you're into...

Its mainly live but they show pre-recorded shows/ sketches/ clips etc.

Comic relief has really gone downhill since back in the day-it used to be something to look forward to, really funny and everyone made an effort. Now its kinda shite.

I know Simon and Nick made an appearance in the Spider Plant thing, but what was Mackenzie Crook? I'm an American, so I have no idea. I'm trying to find some way of downloading it...

I can't watch Comic Relief. I had a bad experience with it 2 years ago. It was the worst thing that could have been on the TV right then.
