The secret policeman online

The Secret Policeman’s Ball was a benefit gig of comedy and music to raise funds for Amnesty International. The Secret Policeman’s Ball version, that’s the one that gets me every time, there’s such a venom in that one like no other.
You can see their point, it’s not a political statement to be gay, but at the same time it’s common humanity that you would support someone who was in prison just because of the fact that they were gay.
June 2009 marks the 30th anniversary of the pioneering Secret Policeman's Ball series of benefit shows for Amnesty International. There is a comedy sketch in which John Cleese, as the Pope, is pissed off with Michaelangelo because the artist's painting of The Last Supper has three Jesus-es in it. Thirty years of "mock 'n' roll" performances are featured in the Secret Policeman's Film Festival - which will run June 11-July 19 at the Egyptian Theatre and the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles - and June 26-July 31 in New York at Lincoln Center and Manhattan's Paley Center. There were so many memorable clips, to be seen in their entirety later on in this film festival: Rowan Atkinson (Mr. And many of the musicians who will be seen in the series are still actively supporting Amnesty's efforts, such as Sting, Gabriel, Tracey Chapman, Joan Baez. While the Egyptian Theatre opened to the public for the US Premiere of two Secret Policeman films, the VIPs who attended the special screening squeezed into the padded cell of pleasure, that is the private enclave at the back of Hollywood's historic Pig 'n' Whistle restaurant.
John Altman, who was involved as band leader for the first two Secret Policeman's Ball shows, sat in with a scorching soprano sax. I pinioned Martin Lewis with a bottle of mineral water and demanded to know more about the TV interview clip in which Cleese credited Lewis with coining the Secret Policeman's Ball title.
So much entertainment and information makes the brain feverish, like that of a child locked in a pantry full of candy.

But, specifically with the Secret Policeman’s Ball, Amnesty had ruled that gays did not count as political prisoners and therefore they didn’t support gay prisoners. It came back in the Secret Policeman’s Ball, but again on the same principle I knocked it down to just three verses on my Youtube version, I just tried it different ways and found that had the impact, and that people’s attention spans are a bit shorter now, and that if you want people to notice the song and remember it then I found you have to cut that out.
The anniversary is being saluted with a major film festival in Los Angeles and New York: June 11 - July 31. Apparently, Lewis is no longer interested in being a mere producer-writer-humorist but is bent on some plan for world domination - and delightfully so, as he presented a VIP audience a filmed retrospective of 30 years of great comedy and music, distilled from 65-70 hours of footage.


A new generation of activist rockers, such as Green Day, Nickelback and Tom Morello carry on the good work. There, the live music featured many of Lewis' pals, including guitarist extraordinaire Laurence Juber (of Paul McCartney's Wings fame). And Neil Innes, widely known as the 7th Python, led a demented singalong of Run Away from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, singing the praises of cowardice with great aplomb. I concluded the evening on the fire escape, talking with comedian Emo Philips, who performed at The Secret Policeman's Third Ball in 1987 and Amnesty's Big 3-0 in 1991. We buy items as close to Mint condition as possible and many will be unplayed and as close to new as you could hope to find. That’s why I was singing it and that’s why I was so angry, because I was singing it to an Amnesty audience. If Cleese, who was so instrumental in creating the series of benefit shows for Amnesty International thirty years ago, is the Pope, then Martin Lewis, who co-created and co-produced those extravaganzas, immortalized on film, is a benign British hydra, a multi-headed, multi-tasking entertainment serpent who slithers between producing the annual Mods & Rockers Film Festival at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, creating a couple of the films seen at tonight's opening and wrapping his serpentine self around his talented friends and bringing them in to perform live on grand opening nights, like last night on Hollywood Boulevard. I had told him of the book I am working on about the early years of Jimi Hendrix and rather obligingly, his first number was Hendrix's Little Wing. He wore a disconcerting shirt that featured a doll's head on it but despite that, we came up with new car alarm sounds. Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. But I thought it was quite funny." Was there any truth to the rumor that it was initially titled the Secret Policeman's Scrotum?
