Opinion: Comic Disbelief – Was This Year's Red Nose Day Show A Disaster?

I was unable to watch most of Comic Relief last night due to a family bereavement. What I did see though only added to my grief. I don’t know if this was officially the worst Comic Relief night in recent memory but according to this article here which has some similar criticisms, the £71 million raised is the lowest total on the night in a decade.

TV Review: Comic Relief 2015

Dancing for 24 hours? What a twat. It’s easy to be cynical about Comic Relief. From the bathfuls of baked beans to celebrities raising their profiles for charity there is much to knock about it. But I don’t know why, maybe I am getting softer and soppier, last night’s Comic Relief seemed pretty decent to me. I started off thinking Dermot O’Leary was a bit of a dick, but ended up thinking he was a bit of a hero. If you want a hatchet job stop reading now.
