On 30th March 2010, at the world famous 02 Arena, over 35 of the nation’s favourite comedians and TV stars came together for the UK’s biggest stand-up show ever! They performed this one off-exclusive comedy event in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Filmed in front of 15,000 screaming fans, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala features the entire comedy extravaganza, including bits they didn't show on TV. This is the must have comedy DVD of the year.

Starring: Alan Carr, Andy Parsons, Bill Bailey, Catherine Tate, Christine Bleakley, David Mitchell, Gok Wan, Jack Dee, Jack Whitehall, James Corden, Jason Manford, Jo Brand, John Bishop, Jonathan Ross, Katie Price & Alex Reid, Kevin Bridges, Kevin Eldon, Lee Evans, Mark Watson, Michael McIntyre, Noel Fielding, Patrick Kielty, Rich Hall, Rob Brydon, Ruth Jones, Sean Lock, Shappi Khorsandi, Stomp, The FoneJacker.

DVD Extra: Jimmy Carr hijacks the ad break

Great Ormond Street is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals with the broadest range of dedicated, children’s healthcare specialists under one roof. Proceeds from the Comedy Gala will help raise much-needed money to allow the hospital to continue to help sick children from across the UK. For more information visit www.gosh.org

4.0 out of 5 stars A great show 26 May 2010
By PC
I saw this show live at the o2 and was very impressed. However I am a bit disappointed in the dvd as I was hoping it would include the full show rather than an edited version in which some of the comedy genius is removed. I was particularly annoyed that the Bill Bailey set was cut short and they didn't even show the same material that was shown on the Channel 4 airing of the show. Overall the dvd is great and supports a great cause but I was unhappy with the editing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much editing 26 Jun 2010
Although the DVD cover boasts that it 'features the entire comedy extravaganza, including the bits they didn't show on TV' - it really isn't. And I should know as I was there. Quite a few sets were cut short, even when they contained no material that might be deemed offensive (Bill Bailey and Kevin Eldon's version of Hallelujah/Last Christmas in German immediately springs to mind. Even parts of their set broadcast on Channel 4 aren't on the DVD...) which was a great disappointment as many of the omitted gags were the reason I, and many others I know, bought the DVD.

On the other hand, the range of comedians and the pure, unstoppable humour of the evening is absolutely worth 5 Stars - although hearing "How are you all doing?" 30-40 times does wear a bit thin - a fact Jack Dee actually commented on towards the end of the night in his typical grumpy style.

Apparently a comedy gala 2011 is being planned so to the powers that be:
Don't edit some of the highlights out and then promote it as the entire show or you will have some very dissatisfied customers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great selection of comedians 7 Oct 2010
Loved this DVD as you get to watch a wide range of comedic talent in Britian at the moment. I loved the fact they included not just stand up comedians but slipped in shows such as Peep Show. This DVD will appeal to a wide range of tastes as there is humour for everyone- it introduced me to acts I hadnt really heard of. Jimmy Carr's hijack of the adverts is also a clever idea and i enjoyed the addition as i didnt get to see the showing on Channel 4. The only thing that seems lacking which I didnt realise until i read other reviews is that some of the show was cut- a pity but never mind- still a good DVD.
