“The Ball is Back!”

Remember the Amnesty International benefits shows?  It was a series of comedy gigs to raise the profile of Amnesty and Human Rights.  The shows were known as The Secret Policeman’s Balls and starred Python regulars such as John Cleese and Michael Palin; also starred other British favourites sucklike as Rowan Atkinson and Stephen Fry.  Well it’s back.  And if the return show is half as good as the originals, it will be hilarious.

“People have been pushing us to do another Ball for many years and we always held back. We’re doing it now because the world needs a poke in the eye, it needs laughter and frankly, it needs more Balls”  show producer Lisle Turner

Good luck Amnesty.
