Stewart, Colbert & Russell Brand Will Kick Off First U.S. Secret Policeman’s Ball
Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Russell Brand, and Reggie Watts will be among the performers at the first ever American version of the Secret Policeman’s Ball on March 4 to benefit Amnesty International. Coldplay and Mumford & Sons will also be in attendance. The event, a long-running British tradition, has been transported to the New World by former Daily Show producer David Javerbaum, who says to expect two hours of music, standup, sketches and “wild fun and games in the audiences.” Take that, England; we’re gonna take your awesome ideas and make them our own! That’s what you get for pulling that taxation without representation shit back in the day.
