Red Nose Day

Today is Red Nose Day.

Every other year in Britain the Comic Relief charity organises Red Nose Day, with the aim of raising money to help the poor in the UK and across the world. As part of the day, the BBC Turns over its main TV channel (BBC1) to an evening of laughter to raise money: a telethon.

There are also several things happening in the run up to it.

This year, they have supplied 'five minute interviews' with people such as Tom Jones and Stephen Fry amongst others.

My favourite one, however, is the Basil Brush interview.

Basil is a puppet on a children's show, but has a wicked sense of humour and tells some of the corniest, oldest jokes you have ever heard.
