Comic Relief has been running since 1985 and has raised over £1 billion since then. First established by writer Richard Curtis and comedian Sir Lenny Henry, the money from fundraising and donations goes towards charitable efforts in the UK and abroad.

Each year, various events take place in the run-up to the main event: a televised special, featuring various comedians, actors, and celebrities. Popular TV shows will often do comedy skits or specials of their shows in order to encourage viewers to donate money.
