Red Nose Day USA 2019

Red Nose Day is the day in the USA, every two years, when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money at home, school and work. There’s a fantastic night of TV on the BBC, with comedy and entertainment to inspire the nation to give generously. The event is now coming to the USA in May!

One Direction has worked with Comic Relief USA in the past, raising an incredible £2 million for Red Nose Day 2019. Their Red Nose Day single “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)” topped the charts in 63 countries in its first week of release, and to date has raised over £850k for Red Nose Day through single sales.

This year in the USA for Red Nose Day a group of popular USA comedians, including Johnny Vegas, will perform as part of the newly-formed tribute band ‘No Direction’.

Johnny, revealing that this year he will be performing in the tribute band live at the London Palladium on the Red Nose Day night of TV, 15th March, says “I’m going to be one of the singers – I don’t know which one but he has a red hoodie. I’m a Leonard Cohen sort of guy and One Direction doesn’t really go with that. I’m going to learn the song, sing it and to dance to it.

Red Nose Day USA 

Red Nose Day USA is run by Comic Relief Inc. which is an independent sister organization of Comic Relief USA. Comic Relief Inc. and Comic Relief USA are independent organizations related through their shared vision of a just world, free from poverty; and with the same mission to effect positive change through the power of entertainment.

In collaboration with Comic Relief, Inc. NBC will host a three-hour entertainment TV special as a celebration for the first Red Nose Day event in the US. Red Nose Day USA will take place in May 2015 and will feature superstar presenters and comedians, original sketch comedy, hilarious film parodies and amazing musical performances. In addition, it will also highlight the poverty-related issues for which Red Nose Day is fundraising. Guest stars on the NBC broadcast, as well as the charities involved, will be announced at a later date.

The money raised for Red Nose Day USA will support poverty-focused charities working both in the United Kingdom and around the world.

Money raised through Red Nose Day goes to organizations that help children and young people living in poverty in the USA and across the world.

50% of the grant money is used to help children and young people right here in the USA
The other 50% of the grant money is spent in some of the poorest communities in the world in Asia, Africa & Latin America.

So let's celebrate this red nose day with full of fun.
