This latest Secret Policeman’s Ball, the comedy and musical benefit extravaganza from Amnesty International that tackles the issue of freedom of expression – or, more precisely, the lack thereof in places throughout the world – is the first of these events since they began in London in 1976 to be held outside of the UK. Captured in high definition at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, the show is the usual mix of edgy comedy from big-name comedians from both sides of the pond such as Russell Brand, Jon Stewart, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Silverman, and Ben Stewart.
