Organization organized by Whoopi Goldberg
, Billy Crystal
and Robin Williams
, and has since staged yearly comedy extravaganza
s to raise money to fight homelessness
in the USA
Yet another Reagan era charity extravaganza.
My embarrasing moment is that a few months after the first Comic Relief, before anyone knew there would be another, we were watching it on video, and I saw the number, and I said to my friends, "Hey, let's call it!" I figured it had long since been disconnected. Imagine my shock when Comic Relief actually answered! I was so embarassed I just hung up. I still feel bad about that sometimes.
