Most people were shocked by the terrible fate that met the victims of the South Asian tsunami on Boxing Day, and many probably wish they could do a little to help. Maybe Revolver Entertainment can provide a way with their new release, The Best Comedy DVD In The World!, a benefit for the disaster victims with every penny of profit going straight to children’s charity, UNICEF.
Revolver are hoping to raise at least £1 million for the tsunami appeal with this celebrity-hosted DVD, which features clips of some of the world’s greatest comedy, from the world of stand-up, television and feature film, all donated free by various UK video labels. Clips featured include Ricky Gervais, Little Britain, Richard Pryor, Monty Python, Wallace And Gromit, Joe Pasquale, Bo Selecta and Phoenix Nights, to name but a few.
Although no release date has yet been set, everybody is working flat out to get the DVD on the shelves in the first week in February, priced £9.99. Most information on the DVD will be available soon on Revolver’s website at www.revolvergroup.com . Those who are interested in UNICEF and its work can find out more at www.unicef.org.uk
