Alan Carr, who will appear on the night, said: “The excitement really is building as we get ready to come together for the Comic Relief Spectacular on the 28th February. It’s already such a great line up and I was absolutely thrilled to announce that the incredibly talented Kerry Godliman and rising star of comedy, Rosie Jones, are going to be joining us at The SSE Arena, Wembley. I know it’s going to be such a fun night, and with it being just around the corner, now’s the chance to get your tickets!”

Russell Howard, said: “Gigs like this are great as they help Comic Relief raise vital funds that enable them to help people here in the UK and around the world. Back in 2017, I travelled to Liberia for Red Nose Day where I saw first-hand how Comic Relief cash was making a difference to lives over there - it was such an eye opener; which is why I’m delighted to be joining forces with them again to take part in the first ever Comic Relief Spectacular. So grab your ticket now, for what promises to be an enormous, life-changing night of fun!”

Katherine Ryan also added: “I can’t wait to take part in the first ever Comic Relief Spectacular. With a name like that, you know it’s going to be an extravaganza. The SSE Arena, Wembley is such an iconic venue and I love performing in London. It’s so exciting to know that I’ll be joined by some of the biggest names in comedy for a life-changing night of laughs. Money raised will enable Comic Relief to help people right here in the UK and around the world. So you know what to do – grab your ticket and we’ll see you in February!”
