Episode Summary

EDIT
The Secret Policeman's Other Ball (1981)
AIRED:
The 1979 Secret Policeman's Ball show had yielded a successful film and two albums (of comedy and music), and the same production team banded together in September 1981 for an even more triumphant four-night reprise at London's Theatre Royal. Once more John Cleese lined up most of the comedic talents - the by-now usual mixture of "Oxbridge" stalwarts and promising newcomers. Martin Lewis parlayed the success of Pete Townshend's 1979 appearance to recruit more musicians to the Amnesty cause: Sting, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Donovan - and, most fortuitously, Bob Geldof, who made his first-ever benefit appearance at the 1981 show. The concept of entertainers banding together for a good cause apparently left an impression on him.moreless
