The awareness campaign, which started in Britain in 1988 to raise money for poverty-stricken children in the U.K. and Africa, arrived in the U.S. today with the same important purpose. Dozens of stars joined forces with NBC and participated in a three-hour telecast Thursday night in an effort to raise funds for children living in poverty here at home and abroad.
The show featured segments that told moving stories of children in need, as well as funny skits starring some of Hollywood's biggest celebs letting loose for a good cause.
In the words of host Seth Meyers, "We make you laugh, then we make you cry, then we make you open your wallet."
Here are three of our favorite bits:
The funds raised during the Red Nose Day campaign will be given to a variety of nonprofit organizations, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Children's Health Fund, Feeding America, the National Council of La Raza, and the United Way. To learn more or donate, click here.

Flavor Flav was arrested in Las Vegas early Thursday morning for… well, a lot of things.
Nevada Highway Patrol public information officer Chelsea Stuenkel told The Insider With Yahoo that they pulled the 56-year-old entertainer over in his 2005 black BMW over for going 73 mph in a 45 mph zone. He was arrested on six charges.
The misdemeanors are suspicion of driving under the influence, speeding, possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, having an open container of alcohol, false registration, and driving with a suspended license. The total bail for Flav — whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. — was $7,000.
This isn't the first time the rapper and television personality has had a run-in with cops on the road.
Last year, the Public Enemy hype man was pulled over for speeding on his way to his mother's funeral in New York. When police ran his license, they found out it had been suspended 16 times.
An attorney for Flavor Flav said she would get back with a comment when the AP informed her of her client's arrest.

A stunning and very alarming report has emerged involving the Duggar family.
According to a recently uncovered police report, Josh Duggar, one of the many stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting , allegedly molested five girls — some of whom, were reportedly his sisters — starting in 2002. He was around 14 at the time.
Josh, 27, issued a statement to People in response to the allegations: "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."
Josh has resigned as Executive Director of the Family Research Council.
So what triggered this investigation in 2006 if the Duggars never came forward? Oprah, actually.

The Pitch Perfect 2 star has been under fire ever since an Australian tabloid alleged she was lying about her age. The outlet posted photos of Wilson — whose real name, it turns out, is Melanie Elizabeth Bownds — from her old school in Australia, proving she is in fact 35, not 29. This was confirmed by business records on Wednesday. B ut hey, who doesn't lie about their age in Hollywood?
The magazine reports that the new couple met through mutual friends. "They get along really well, they respect each other’s work," the insider says. "She's been too busy to date for awhile, they've been texting often, and they've been spending some time together in L.A. and New York."

Queen Bey and Nicki Minaj dropped their "Feeling Myself" music video on Monday — on Tidal, of course — and one particular scene definitely got a reaction (possibly an overraction) out of viewers. Jay Z's better half can be seen pouring out a shiny bottle of Armand de Brignac — aka Ace of Spades — into a hot tub, which rubbed quite a few folks the wrong way.
Why? Because it's a big old waste of money. The bottle of bubbly ranges in price, sometimes upwards into the hundreds of thousands of dollars range, although it's unclear just how much this particular one costs.
Beyoncé pour $20K Champagne into a tub like it's nothing. She should give me a bottle so I can return it and pay for my tuition.
So seeing Beyoncé pour out a $20000 bottle into a pool is a slap in the face to me
Beyoncé over here pour 20,000 dollar Champagne in a hot tube while California ain't got even a years worth of water.

Cash Warren posted a sweet message to wife Jessica Alba on Tuesday to celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary. The 36-year-old entrepreneur shared the above throwback photo on Instagram, writing: "This was taken the day our journey began almost 12 years ago. Today we celebrate 7 years of marriage and I'm more in love than ever before. I pinch myself because life isn't supposed to be a fairy tale but our life together sure feels like one. Happy Anniversary my love @jessicaalba."
Two children later and they're still going strong.
Alba, 34, met Cash while filming Fantastic Four . The couple's low-key nuptials took place in the ceremony room at the Beverly Hills courthouse. They applied for a marriage license and waited about 40 minutes for the paperwork to be processed before a staff member officially married them. No one else attended the wedding, according to People.
The 25-year-old superstar let loose following her 8 big wins and it was all captured in the awesome photo booth — complete with costumes and props — on hand at the fete. Taylor's younger brother Austin, who graduated from Notre Dame over the weekend, posted the above shot on Twitter, writing, "Last night was a wild ride #DoneWithCollege."
Can you spot all the celebs?
One Direction's Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne got in on the fun, posing with Ed, Taylor, Calvin Harris, and Austin. In one shot, Swift and her DJ beau only have eyes for each other. Could her new romance have anything to do with why her ex Harry Styles skipped out on the soiree with his bandmates?
Harry Styles's absence was clearly the last thing on Taylor's mind. She got goofy and wild with a ton of her other pals in attendance… particularly with Calvin. In another photo booth shot that made its way to social media, you can see the couple sneak a quick kiss.
The Star Trek actor was photographed packing on the PDA with Vail Bloom, who appeared on the most recent season of Bravo's Vanderpump Rules . Pine, 34, and Bloom, 32, took a PDA-filled stroll out in Hollywood on Sunday. The possible new couple held hands as they went shopping at American Rag and then were snapped kissing over lunch.
This isn't the first time Chris has been spotted out with a reality TV star. He and The Hills 's Audrina Patridge dated back in 2009 #neverforget.
So who is Vail Bloom?
She most recently appeared in season 3 of Vanderpump Rules working as a hostess at Lisa Vanderpump's West Hollywood restaurant Sur. Before she caught the acting bug, Vail was headed down a very different path. She graduated from Princeton with a degree in Architecture but got that good ole' L.A. itch and relocated to L.A. She was even nominated for a Daytime Emmy for her role as Heather Stevens on The Young and the Restless in 2008.
While Chris and Vail look quite smitten with one another, Pine has been up front about how difficult it is to settle down in Hollywood.
Everyone is in agreement that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are the best couple in Hollywood, right?
The Jurassic World star has been having his moment for a year or so now, but Pratt hasn't forgotten what it was like being the lesser-known actor in his relationship.
In the latest issue of GQ, he was asked whether it's weird to be in a marriage like his where th e fame balance keeps readjusting itself.
"Mmm… I think it probably could affect... I think it's something you have to manage," he replied. "It's a little different, because she's achieved enough to hang her hat on for her life, anyways. She's done really amazing things — she's always gonna be known for really funny and great work, critically acclaimed work and successful stuff."
He is referring to the sequel, which begins filming next year.
Pratt is also aware he will probably have to make a choice between his family and taking that great movie role at some point.
He probably would be good at that.
Yep. Chris and Anna are definitely the best celebrity couple ever.
Nice (and funny) guys don't always finish last… just ask Justin Long. Amanda Seyfried landed her first Voguecover, and in the June issue, the Ted 2 star shares the funny story of how Justin hooked her.
"I followed him on Instagram," she reveals, "and I thought something he said was really funny. It was a beautiful picture of a snail, and the caption said, 'F--king MOOOOOOOOVE.' It made me laugh out loud, so I texted him."
The writer of the Vogue article notes that although "this is a relatively young relationship, [Amanda] talks about Long, who is 36, as if they've been together for many years." Seyfried, 29, and Justin initially met through mutual friends and began dating in the summer of 2013. "I really do have my own identity, both inside and outside the relationship, if that makes any sense," she states. "It just feels right. It's also really good to feel OK being alone."
Sounds like Amanda has her priorities straight.
