Asian tsunami disaster appeal and will, no doubt, be pulling out
all the stops when they take to the stage at 8pm on Tuesday, February

a five-minute slot.

so far, includes: Dawn French, Julie Walters and Victoria Wood;
Lee Evans, Jimmy Carr, Johnny Vegas, Bill Bailey, Jo Brand, Sanjeev
Bhaskar and Meera Syal, John Culshaw, Omid Djalili, Eddie Izzard,
The League of Gentlemen, Alistair McGowan, Dave Spikey and percussion
Other big name acts will be announced over the coming week.

for release on DVD.
All proceeds will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
