The Secret Policeman's Ball: The Ball in the Hall
17 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a great Amnesty International charity show on Channel 4. It first started back in 1976 with acts from the likes of Rowan Atkinson, the Monty Python team and Victoria Wood, and since then, this one came along. I cannot remember laughing all that much at everything, but I certainly remember many of the faces. These include The Big Impression's Ronni Ancona, Russell Brand, Chevy Chase, Dead Ringers' Jon Culshaw, Julia Davis, Jimmy Fallon, The Mighty Boosh (including Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding), Richard E. Grant, Stephen Mangan, Austin Powers' Seth Green, Jeremy Irons, Eddie Izzard, Andrew Maxwell, Al Murray (The Pub Landlord), Graham Norton, EastEnders' Shaun Williamson, and my favourite act, Dave Armand (Johan Lippowitz) doing sign language with Natalie Imbruglia singing her song "Torn". Good!
