For weeks now Comedians from the world of Stage, Screen & Dole Queue have given up their freetime to do something special for charity, and we appreciate their efforts.
We've all watched the clips & seen the suffering.
And It's hard not to shed a tear or two.
Bob Geldof put it like this ...
"It first came to our attentions on the TV over 20 F**kin years ago
and we did what we F**kin could then, but these things don't just go away.
Its a sad fact but Lenny Henry is still not funny.
He wasn't funny 20 years ago & the problems are still there.
I remember watching those tragic pictures of his solo show in 1985, it really stuck in my f**kin mind and I knew we had to act.
People didn't realise the F**king suffering in Lennies act, they couldn't comprehend the thousands of deaths that had occured.
Midge Ure was uninvitable for comment.
Jonathon Ross of Jonathon Ross fame takes up the story:
"When you see what Comic welief has done for Lennies Caweer
You know that its all worthwhile.
Just one pound can buy a whole Lenny Fresh running gags for a full 25 minute Routine".
So you are probably saying - well that's as maybe & fairly boring but what can I do ?
We are not asking for much, you don't have to watch a whole episode of the Lenny Henry show or anything crazy.
Just pledge a few pounds while he's on, laugh if you can
& remember not everyone in this world is as funny as you
think of those less fortunate & dig deep.
Coat hanger my friends
