@U2, May 24, 2016
By: Karen Lindell

 

Bono will participate in this year's Red Nose Day Special, a TV fundraising entertainment program airing live at 9 p.m. ET Thursday on NBC.

Red Nose Day, run by the nonprofit organization Comic Relief Inc., raises funds for needy children around the world. In the U.K. it has raised more than $1 billion globally over the past 25 years, and was launched last year in the U.S.

Thursday's two-hour TV special will include comedy and music performances, plus short films about kids in need. Yes, wearing a red nose is part of the fun. Perhaps Bono will don one?

He is among 60-plus other celebrity guests scheduled to appear including Elton John, Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Blake Shelton, Ellen DeGeneres, Jack Black, Tracy Morgan, Kobe Bryant, Chloë Grace Moretz, Bill Gates, Tyler Perry and Zac Efron.

People are invited to wear red noses and participate in "FUN-raising" Red Nose Day events throughout the day.
