It’s no joke.
Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Coldplay and more, all in one room on Sunday, March 4th performing at Amnesty’s Secret Policeman’s Ball in New York City.
It promises to be an irreverently hilarious salute to free speech and Amnesty International’s life-saving human rights work, sure to ruffle the feathers of dictators everywhere.
New York City is far away, you say? You don’t even need to leave your comfortable couch. Watch it live online, streaming at EpixHD.com on March 4th, 7PM ET/4PM PT.
Want to join us live at Radio City Music Hall, within spitting distance of Sarah Silverman, Russell Brand and other stars? We’re giving away two tickets to the Ball, including airline tickets and two nights accommodation in NYC. Enter our ticket sweepstakes now, and spread the word!
There is so much serious work to do promoting human rights worldwide, that sometimes we at Amnesty are just not that funny. It’s okay. We admit it. We talk about it with our therapists and we are fine with it. Really.
That’s why it’s a good thing that there are some really funny people out there. People like Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, David Cross, Fred Armisen, and Statler and Waldorf from the Muppets. Well, technically the Muppets are puppets, not people, and are thus not covered under major international human rights laws. But we shouldn’t tell them that.
We digress. In all seriousness — the Secret Policeman’s Ball will feature wonderful, talented, knee-slappingly hilarious people (and Muppets, see above) who are willing to stand in front of an audience and make delightful fools of themselves to support Amnesty and everything we stand for.
Go ahead. Laugh loud. Laugh for human rights. We serious folks at Amnesty give you permission.
