Britain Comic Relief Special
The 'Comic Relief does
Little Britain Live' DVD went on sale for £5 and at least £3 from every sale
went straight to Comic Relief.
Matt and David were
joined by celebrity guests for a Live special for Comic Relief 2007.
The show took place on
Wednesday 22 November 2006 at the Hammersmith Apollo.
Celebrity guest stars
- Kate Moss (played
Vicky Pollard's sister).

(who got a nasty surprise from Maggie and Judy).

- Kate Thornton (as
Stars in their Eyes presenter in the Anne sketch).

name. He joined in to sing the theme tune to the television programme Minder

Moyles as an overweight victim of Marjorie's fatfighter's club.

Held in aid of Comic
Relief, stars such as Russell Brand, Kate Moss, Peter Kay and Jonathan Ross
joined Matt Lucas and David Walliams on stage to make last Thursday's event at
London's Hammersmith Apollo a truly special laugh-in.
Aside from the help of comedy heavyweights, arguably the highlight was Holby
City star Jeremy Edwards accidentally exposing himself on stage. The former
Celebrity Big Brother contestant Edwards was pulled out of the audience by
Walliams’s perverted ex-children’s entertainer Des Kaye. Also joining him on
stage was the equally unsuspecting victim David Baddiel. The pair were then
forced to play a game called "hunt the sausage" during which time Walliam's
character started fiddling with Edwards. It was then that Walliams pulled down
both Edwards' trousers and his pants, exposing 'little Jeremy' to over 3,000
astonished audience members!
included the appearance of the real Dennis Waterman, who interrupted the duo's
sketch which sends him up as a dopey midget who always has to write and sing the
theme tune of every show he's in.
Accusing the Little Britain pair, he demanded: "tell me what is the point of
this sketch? Firstly, I don’t speak like that. Secondly, I’m not a midget.
Thirdly, I don’t insist on singing the theme tune."
However, all Lucas and Walliams had to do was mention Minder, On The Up and New
Tricks and the argument was won. All Waterman could do was lead the audience in
a chorus of I Should Be So Good For You to thunderous applause!
Tickets for the
exclusive fundraiser were available for £125, £75 and £35. All the proceeds went
to Comic Relief.
The show, Little
Britain's Big Night, took place at the Hammersmith Apollo in West London and was
being filmed by the BBC which broadcasted on March 16th 2007.
