In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Amnesty International, the Secret Policeman's Ball was staged in the USA for the first time at New York's famous Radio City Music Hall. With a history dating back to 1979, the Secret Policeman's Ball has always gathered the best comedy and musical talent to use wit and humor to raise both funds and awareness for the vital work that Amnesty International does to prick the conscience of governments around the world.
An amazing line-up of both British and American performers took to the stage including: Russell Brand, Eddie Izzard, Jon Stewart, Reggie Watts, Ben Stiller, Paul Rudd, Sarah Silverman and Seth Meyers, along with taped contributions from Monty Python members Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. Musical elements were provided by Mumford & Sons and a concluding set by Coldplay. Following in the footsteps of its illustrious predecessors, the 2012 Secret Policeman's Ball is as relevant, as funny, as important and as badly behaved as ever.
