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.

For anyone who doubts the remarkable trajectory of Pamela Anderson's career, she now gets to add "first Playboy Playmate to be knighted" to her CV. During a stop by The Ellen DeGeneres Show , Anderson joked about her recent knighthood and added that she'll become a Countess next month.
"Lady Pamela. And then it will be the Countess of the Lilly or something like that," Anderson said of her upcoming upgrade. "Anyway it’s an environmental thing."
Anderson said the knighthood comes as a reward for her tireless work for animal rights. She's worked for years with PETA, advocating for a vegan diet and the discontinuation of the use of fur in fashion. Earlier this week, PETA unveiled its latest ad starring Anderson, in which she recreates Psycho 's infamous shower scene.
On the show, DeGeneres joked that she likes animals, too, and would like a title of her own. Sorry, Ellen, but Americans don't get to be knights.
Anderson also joked about her A+ genes; now that she's 47 she's happy to share the spotlight with her two sons, Brandon and Dylan.
She says she's not completely off the idea of marriage, however.

On Thursday, the U.K.'s Attitude magazine unveiled photos of its June cover star, Harry Potter 's Matthew Lewis.
Lewis posed for the magazine's swimwear and underwear issue in various states of undress, saying he's surprised by all the attention his post-Neville Longbottom physique has gotten.
"Obviously a lot of attention focused on it, which I didn’t expect at all," the 25-year-old said. "I’ve never considered myself to be good-looking at all. Just average."
Yes, this is what Matthew Lewis used to look like:
And this is what he looks like now:
But there was at least one person who wasn't quite so thrilled to look at hot Neville lounging in a cardigan and his Armani briefs: Harry Potter creator and (probably) Lewis surrogate maternal figure J.K. Rowling.
Matthew responded with his tail between his legs.
Ten points to Gryffindor.
It Looks Official: Robin Thicke and His 20-Year-Old Girlfriend Geary Show Up to Cannes Party TogetherMallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago
Robin Thicke must have been crooning seductive ballads into the universe, because it looks like the romance gods have blessed him with a new relationship. Thicke, 38, showed up on Wednesday night to a yacht party during the Cannes Film Festival with his much younger girlfriend, 20-year-old model April Love Geary, essentially putting their relationship out in the open. This is for real, folks.
According to People , the two also cavorted at the Grisogono bash at the Hôtel du Cap on Tuesday. Thicke reportedly performed there, too.
While the two had been spotted outand about together before — and the paparazzi caught her vacationing with Thickeand his 5-year-old son, Julian — Thicke is now putting their relationship on display by choice by happily posing for the cameras, rather than being subjected to the paparazzi's shots. He really has an official lady now.
But it looks like he's moved on and is happier now, at least.

Taking your first selfie is a rite of passage. That moment you press the little camera button, choose your favorite filter, and post it — you're suddenly in a new class along with other technologically savvy people who are searching for their best angles.
Of course, people who heavily indulge in selfies are often accused of exercising vanity, but the same cannot be said for Eva Mendes, who — despite having an Instagram account for a few months now — snapped herfirst selfie for a really, really good cause: to raise awareness and generate donations for a little boy as he battles cancer.
She also posted a photoof Andrew.
Further, Eva's selfie is proof: not all selfies exemplify vanity. Some demonstrate compassion, instead. To donate to Andrew's fund, click here.

Actors Dylan and Cole Sprouse, whom you might remember for playing the adorable tyke Adam Sandler bonds with in Big Daddy or the title characters in the Disney Channel's The Suite Life of Zack and Cody , have pulled a full-on Jodie Foster.
That's right, the 22-year-old twins have accomplished the double whammy of escaping child stardom without a scandal (save for one nude photo) and earning a college degree. They walked across the stage on Wednesday as part of New York University's Class of 2015. Both graduated with honors, but in very different fields: Cole studied archaeology, while Dylan opted for video game design.
We've tried to do right, to fix some of the negative stereotypes of child stardom. We've had some bumps, but I'm so glad we went to Uni.

Cher can't turn back time, but she's still got it!
The songstress and movie star turned 69 on Wednesday. She marked the occasion by sharing exactly the kind of bold and saucy comment for which she's known.
💋's 2 all4 AMAZING TWTS🎉IF I MUST BE AS OLD AS CLOUDS,It's Ok.I can sing,I'm Funny, have a great laugh& can wear the fk out of a dress
Yeah, you can! Cher certainly stunned in her sequined, floor-length Marc Jacobs gown at the Met Gala on May 4.
The entertainer's claim that she can sing has been proven for decades, ever since she and Sonny crooned "I Got You Babe" together back in 1965. And that Oscar for the 1987 romantic comedy Moonstruck shows that she can back up what she says about being funny, too.
Said as only Cher could say it.
