Liveblogging Comic Relief

Post categories:

David Thair | 13:57 UK time, Friday, 13 March 2009

This is it! The big red nosed day, Red Nose Day, is upon us once again - so if you were planning on doing anything else tonight, forget it. Clear your diary. Cancel all appointments... alienate all your friends.

Do whatever it takes, because if watching star-studded, specially written comedy performances interspersed with harrowing films about poor and vulnerable people in the UK and Africa is your kind of thing - and it certainly is ours - then you'll want to do nothing else but tune in to BBC One tonight from 7pm. And, if you're not near a telly, fear not - you can still watch live online via the BBC One website.


300_dannyrobins.jpgWherever you're watching Comic Relief, keep your browser pointed in this direction throughout, because we'll be blogging ourselves raw from at the event in our special backstage area behind the studio. Guest blogger for the night, comedian and writer Danny Robins will be bothering celebrities and providing an extra angle on proceedings, so subscribe with a feed reader or keep hitting refresh to stay up-to-speed with what's happening on and off screen.


We'll also be joined by Comic Relief twitterer Mark Woods. He's been up a very large mountain with Chris Moyles and lived to tweet about it.


Of course, if you're into that sort of thing you can follow proceedings on twitter via your mobile browser - but if you find yourself stranded away from your computer for the night (perhaps due to locking yourself in the toilet, for example) - the BBC Comedy mobile site will also be updated regularly. You'll find a link on the BBC Mobile homepage.


So we hope you'll be joining us for tonight's liveblogging occurrence. Join the conversation with other readers by leaving comments, or send us emails directly via comedyblog@bbc.co.uk to let us know what you're doing to be funny and raise money on Red Nose Day. You can even send us photos - and please note that we'll assume you're happy for us to publish anything you send, unless otherwise stated.
