Red Nose Day, the national fundraising campaign to end child poverty, returns to NBC with a night of special primetime programming on Thursday, May 24.
Hosted by Chris Hardwick, this year’s broadcast will include a special version of Celebrity Ninja Warrior and Hollywood Game Night. Other celebrities such as Kirsten Bell, Kelly Clarkson, Julia Roberts, Ed Sheeran, Marlon Wayans, Sean Hayes, Ellie Kemper, Zooey Deschanel, Sasheer Zamata, Tony Hale, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, Akbar Gbajabiamila and Matt Iseman will also be a part of the broadcast.
Red Nose Day was created by Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning writer/director Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill) and leverages the power of entertainment to bring the nation together to have fun and make a difference for children in need both here in America and around the world. It has raised over $1 billion globally since its launch in the UK in 1988.
Just last year, Red Nose Day's 2017 campaign raised over $35 million.
