Catalogue Note

The 2006 Comic Relief event was a fundraiser for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. It marked Comic Relief's 20th anniversary, and featured Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, and Robin Williams doing a parody of "When the Saints Go Marching In."  In addition to a plethora of comedy sketches performed by the day's most prominent comedians, Bill Clinton appeared with George H. W. Bush thanking Comic Relief on behalf of its Katrina efforts. 

Richard Wallich is an American impressionist who has spent more than 40 years developing his unique aesthetic. He has been commissioned by HBO (the network that most frequently televised Comic Relief events), Major League Baseball, and Kodak, among others.
