Comedian, actor and TV host Chris Hardwick (“The Wall”) will host NBC’s third annual “The Red Nose Day Special,” featuring great comedy, entertainment and compelling films shedding light on kids in need.
Poignantly capturing the dire challenges some children are faced with internationally, Julia Roberts will travel to Nairobi, Kenya to visit one of Africa’s largest slums – Kibera. People there live in extreme poverty and the need for essential medication is critical. She visits an overcrowded hospital full of serious cases, most of which are entirely preventable with vaccines that cost as little as $5.
The special includes the much-anticipated “Red Nose Day Actually,” a short “Love Actually” reunion film from writer-director Richard Curtis, who is also the founder of Red Nose Day. Bringing together the cast of the beloved holiday movie to support the charity, Curtis will reveal an exclusive version of the film with never-before-seen footage just for “The Red Nose Day Special” airing in the U.S.
