Celebrate Red Nose Day!

Today is Red Nose Day! It’s the day that celebrities and people around the world come together to have fun, make a difference for kids in need, and organize FUN-raisers. Red Nose Day started in the U.K. and has raised more than $1 billion globally in the last 25 years. In 2015, the FUN-raiser launched in the U.S., and in the first year it raised more than $23 million.

 

Tonight in primetime on NBC, a star-studded cast of your favorite celebrities will come together to raise money to help get children out of poverty. The two-hour special is hosted by funnyman Craig Ferguson and will feature musical performances, short films, and hilarious comedy. Elton John, Ellen DeGeneres, Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, and Blake Shelton are among more than 65 stars coming together in Los Angeles.

 

Tonight, look out for some hilarious standup comedy from Tracy Morgan, Blake Griffin shooting three’s and donating $5,000 for every one he makes, performances by Elton John and Blake Shelton, and more!

 

Here’s a sneak peak of what you can expect tonight.

 

 

So put on your red nose, have some fun, watch tonight’s special, and donate to a great cause.
