Secret Policeman's Ball

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Andy (along with a bunch of SNL pals) will attend the Secret Policeman's Ball in March.

"Epix, the premium TV venture of Viacom, Lionsgate and MGM, said Thursday that it will be the exclusive U.S. broadcaster of Amnesty International’s star-studded Secret Policeman’s Ball next month.

The comedy and music event will be held at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on March 4... the broadcast deal is seen as helping human rights organization Amnesty drive awareness among a younger generation.

Amnesty previously said that performers at this year's event will include Coldplay, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Russell Brand, Mumford & Sons and Reggie Watts.

New performers added to the show include comedians Seth Meyers, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig, John Oliver, Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Rashida Jones, Hannibal Buress and Statler & Waldorf from The Muppets. Added British comics include Noel Fielding, Micky Flanagan, Peter Serafinowicz and Jack Whitehall.

'Amnesty International is thrilled that so many top comedians, musicians and entertainers will sound off for free speech at The Secret Policeman’s Ball by using the power of speech itself to challenge and resist those who would constrain it,' said Suzanne Nossel, Amnesty International USA’s new executive director. 'On March 4, we will stand with bloggers in Egypt, China and Azerbaijan, a writer in Cameroon, Burmese comedian Zarganar, who was sentenced to 35 years in prison for mocking his government, and countless others facing punishment for writing and saying what they think.'"


I wonder what Andy will do, and whether or not Jorma, Akiva, or Joanna will accompany him. Hmmm...

I'm also a fan of The Mighty Boosh, so hearing that Andy Samberg & Noel Fielding (TMB) are going to be in the same room just makes me squeal.
