Red Nose Day has been a charity staple in the United Kingdom for over a decade now, but U.S. audiences only got their first taste last year when the organization Charity Relief partnered with NBC to launch the first event stateside. The United States’ inaugural Red Nose Day was such a success that it was a no brainer for it to return this year, and so it did last night with even more stars and hilarious sketches.
Considering last year’s event brought us such viral gems as the “Game Of Thrones”/Coldplay musical and Anna Kendrick’s Indiana Jones, it was going to take some big-time effort for the 2016 installment to even come close to the first edition. Fortunately, everyone from Margot Robbie and Key & Peele to Ludacris, Tony Hale, Olivia Wilde, Jack Black, Sarah Silverman, Julia Roberts and the cast of “The Walking Dead” showed up to deliver the laughs and encourage viewers to help raise funds for children in need, poverty alleviation and various charities across the world (the event raised $31.5 million this year). Robbie even stripped down to put a funny spin on her cameo in “The Big Short.”
