The Secret Policeman's Ball 2012, 20 June 2012
Author: Jackson Booth-Millard from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I saw the 2006 and 2008 editions of the Amnesty International charity show on Channel 4, and it was good to see that they were doing another one, but this one was special as it celebrated fifty years of the charity and it was being done at New York City's Radio City Music Hall. The acts in the show were Ben Stiller and David Walliams comparing English and American words, stand up by Jack Whitehall, Statler (Steve Whitehall) and Waldorf from The Muppets, John Oliver, stand up by Jimmy Carr, Noel Fielding and Russell Brand - aka The Goth Detectives, Bill Hader as Julian Assange, stand up by Micky Flanagan, stand up by Sarah Silverman, Paul Rudd and The IT Crowd's Matt Berry, stand up by Eddie Izzard, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, a short song by The Amnestones: Catherine Tate, Fred Armisen, Kristen Wiig and Matt Berry, stand up by Hannibal Buress, a short cartoon appearance by Beavis and Butthead, Mumford & Sons singing "Roll Away Your Stone", stand up by Reggie Watts, Peter Serafinowicz as Sir Paul McCartney, short videos from Monty Python: Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Jones, and Coldplay singing "Viva La Vida", "Paradise" and "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall". Good!
