Russell Brand To Host Comic Relief Gig
Nicole Scherzy, Jessie J & more are set to perform at the fundraiser in March...
The Noel Gallagher will perform.
The gig aims to reunite personalities from both the world of music and stand-up comedy to support those who are affected by drug and alcohol addiction in the UK.
Comedians Jimmy Carr, Noel Fielding, Frankie Boyle, Simon Amstell, Doc Brown and ex-One Show host Jason Manford will also appear, with more acts due to be announced in the next few weeks.
Speaking of the event, Comic Relief CEO Kevin Cahill said: "Comic Relief has funded work tackling substance abuse for many year. We were thrilled when Russell Brand offered to highlight the issue and raise funds to help tackle the problem.
"It's a perfect use of his celebrity profile to front the 'Give It Up for Comic Relief' gig and work behind the scenes to put it all together. He has played a blinder."
Pre-sale tickets will be available from 9am today (Thursday, January 31) until 7am on Friday, February 1, when tickets go on general sale.
