No, that is not elaborate CIA code. The Secret Policeman's Ball, a concert hosted annually in Britain to raise money for Amnesty International, is making its way to the US of A for the first time in its decades-long history. The show will take place at NYC's Radio City Music Hall on March 4, and as the New York Times Arts Blog reports, Comedy Central talent will factor in heavily.
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will headline along with some folks from a show called "SNL" (?). Other comedic talent will include Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Silverman and David Cross, with possible appearances by Hannibal Buress, Aziz Ansari and more. (My boss is going to hate me when tagging this post.)
Sounds pretty amazing! There is lots more information available on this dedicated Facebook page. Also, I just wanted to point out that the Wikipedia entry is titled "The Secret Policeman's Balls." That is all.
