This latest Secret Policeman’s Ball, the comedy and musical benefit extravaganza from Amnesty International that tackles the issue of freedom of expression – or, more precisely, the lack thereof in places throughout the world – is the first of these events since they began in London in 1976 to be held outside of the UK. Captured in high definition at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, the show is the usual mix of edgy comedy from big-name comedians from both sides of the pond such as Russell Brand, Jon Stewart, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Silverman, and Ben Stewart. It’s disappointing again that for this momentous event they give us only this brief behind-the-scenes featurette as an extra and thin booklet with stills and brief liner notes.
The comedy in The Secret Policeman’s Ball is at such a level, most of the time, it is almost enough to make you forget the real problem with the violent suppression of speech around the world. It was also announced today that UK fans will be able to watch the Ball on Channel 4 within days of the event itself. Campaigning for freedom of expression remains a fundamental part of Amnesty’s campaigning work. Meanwhile last year Amnesty campaigned for the release of young poet in Bahrain who was jailed for reading out a poem.

Established in 1976, The Secret Policeman’s Ball used anarchic humour to throw a spotlight on human rights abuses.

Beginning in 1976, they have featured the cream of Britain’s comedians and musicians, and laid the groundwork for high-profile charity events, including Live Aid. Brand, Izzard, and Silverman issue the three best stand-up routines, and they certainly don’t let down concerning grittiness, especially Silverman who somehow manages to equate be arrested for stalking a boyfriend who rejected her to living in a police state.
