Since it began, Comic Relief has raised more than £425 million. Of this total, a massive £355 million has been raised through Comic Relief’s 10 Red Nose Days. Here are five fundraising facts:
1. Out of the total money raised from Red Nose Day, 60% is spent in Africa and 40% is spent here in the UK.
2. Red Nose Day cash has supported nearly 6,000 projects across the UK. From Aberystwyth to Aberdeen and Ballymena to Brighton, a lot of vulnerable people’s lives have changed for the better.
3. Just £20 can buy clothes and toys for children who have nothing after fleeing their home with their mum because of domestic violence.
4. Over 1,500 projects across 40 African countries have received funding with cash raised through Red Nose Day. This cash is making a huge difference to people and communities across the continent.
5. £50 can pay the school fees of 2 children living in extreme poverty in Ethiopia, for a whole year. An education gives them the best chance to escape the poverty they face and look forward to a brighter future.

Some of the best characters in this are the guy who cannot stand being called gay ("who dear me dear no dear"), the grandma who can't keep a lid on her nasty side; the silly woman who's gullible on the internet and marries a death row inmate and of course that funny sketch about the woman working in the wig salon, some of the funniest moments come from this.
There's some really good observations by Catherine though; like the restaurant waitress who does those stupid things you often find in themed places ("Table 3 wants Boogie Dogs *silly music*") and of course Lauren who's supposed to be based on a real teenager - she seems to have got the annoyance they can often give others, and the slang is just funny. There's also the office worker annoying that poor woman next to her with those guessing games, how many of us have people like that in our lives?
Some really annoying things - that Irish woman who keeps saying "he's a gay man now", it's one of her worst sketches; the one where a red headed woman is taken to a special refuge, thought that was really stupid and some moments in series 3 show that Catherine was really ready to stop making the show, as she was showing signs of running out of material.
This is a good show though, really funny, the gran has me in stitches, so yes, repetitive comedy can be good, like the likes of Enfield, Whitehouse, Bishop, Novak, Taylor and many others who've made very repetitive jokes lately.Read more ›
Catherine Tate has generously made all of these sketches for comic relief and £3 of the £5 DVD will be going to the charity.
I would highly recommend this DVD to any fan of Catherine Tate.
My favourite character is Nan, and I simply laughed my head off as she competed with Noel Edmonds in Deal or no Deal. Absolutely brilliant, worth the fiver alone.
Buy it, for a great cause and will have you in stitches.
The good: characters like Lauren the teenager, Derek the "not at all gay" man, the vicious-tongued Nan and the ginger refuge are hilarious and make this set well worth the purchase. Also, people such as the randy nurse, the flatulent snob and the "I can do that" woman will raise the odd smile.
The bad: the first series is very spotty and contains too many badly-conceived characters like the valley girl and the woman who marries a murderer on Death row (these sketches have no real point or pay-off at all). Too many episodes in series two and three are dragged down by characters such as the "make a drama out of anything" woman and her kids, the "laugh about anything" couple and another couple whose whole reason for existing seems to be purely to moan about various food they've been forced to eat. These sketches are not only unfunny, they grate on the nerves and in many cases are ridiculously over-length. If even dragging in Paul Whitehouse can't save a sketch you know something's going wrong.
In summary, the better sketches make this box set worth a purchase but now and again patience (or a fast-forward button) will be required.
