Hollywood Game Night: Red Nose Day Special

“Hollywood Game Night,” hosted by Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch, joined the Red Nose Day celebration on Thursday, May 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with some of the biggest names in entertainment set to prove their pop culture chops.

Kelly Clarkson (“The Voice”), Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”), Jack Black (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”), Chelsea Handler (“Chelsea”), Isla Fisher (“Wedding Crashers”), Sarah Silverman (“I Love You, America”), Sasheer Zamata (“Saturday Night Live”) and Cedric the Entertainer (“Why Him”) competed in support of the mission to end child poverty.

Additionally, blink-182’s Travis Barker joined the “HGN” house band, The Scorekeepers, as a guest drummer for the evening.

The two teams played Red Nose Day-themed versions of fan-favorite games, including Super Smash the Buzzer, Clue-Boom!, Lil Picassos and more.

In this special edition of “Hollywood Game Night,” the gameplay worked a bit differently — the team that got the most points in each game earned money to donate to Red Nose Day. At the end of five rounds, the team that earned the most money went on to play a special Celebrity Name Game for the chance to raise even more funds.

Red Nose Day is an annual event that harnesses the power of entertainment to raise money and awareness for children living in poverty in America and internationally. NBC's night of special Red Nose Day programming is a culmination of a seven-week fundraising campaign, which brings together millions of Americans around the country to have fun and make a difference. Talent who have supported the campaign include Julia Roberts, Ed Sheeran, Elton John and many more.

Red Nose Day was created by Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning writer-director Richard Curtis, (“Love Actually,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill”). It has raised more than $1 billion globally since its launch 30 years ago in the U.K. in 1988.
