Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

This recording of the comedy fundraiser for Amnesty International enjoyed a theatrical release (in a much longer form) following its TV screening. A brilliant cast of comedians and performers (including John Cleese, Peter Cook, Clive James, Rowan Atkinson, Billy Connolly, Pete Townshend), and some wonderful sketches provide guaranteed entertainment. The same formula was repeated with The Secret Policeman's Other Ball which had a theatrical debut as well as the Third Ball in 1987. All are worth catching and feature wonderful moments from some of the most popular comedians of the last 35 years.
