New Comic Talent for Comic Relief

Comic Relief has gathered some of the best new comedy talent on the circuit to star in a series of online videos for the charity. The first video features Natasia Demetriou, Lolly Adefope, Jamie Demetriou, Rhys James and Nick Mohammed.

In the comedy short, written by Daniel Audritt and Kat Butterfield, the group brainstorm ideas for this year’s Red Nose design with…dismal results.

Funny Women Best Show Award winner Anna Morris, 2009 Funny Women Awards winner London Hughes and 2014 Funny Women Awards finalists Massive Dad will all feature in future Comic Relief comedy shorts!

Comic Relief founder Richard Curtis, who is also working on a sequel to Love Actually, said: “Red Nose Day has always benefited from the support of incredible British comic talent, so it seems right that this year we’re handing the mic over to some of the most exciting new names on the circuit, from writers to stand ups and actors.

“The special Comic Relief Live gigs and the new YouTube series are a chance to see the comedy stars of tomorrow in action.”
