Red Nose Day 2016

Red Nose Day 2016: Game of Thrones' Ramsay Sings, 11 Other Key Moments

If you’re a reindeer named Rudolph, every day is Red Nose Day. For the rest of us, it’s an annual celebrity telethon for children on NBC — and as we all saw on Thursday, it can get weird.

And we mean “weird” in the best way, of course. $30.7 million raised in the name of helping children on a global scale is nothing to thumb your (red) nose at.

Hosted by Craig Ferguson, Red Nose Day 2k16 was a two-hour parade of stars and sketches, and while not every gamble paid off (poor Malin Akerman!), at least it was all for a good cause.

One of the highlights of this year’s telethon was another musical Game of Thrones parody, this time shining a spotlight on one of Westeros’ less savory characters; last year’s, literally titled Game of Thrones: The Musical, featured Kit Harington belting about bows and Emilia Clarke as the Rastafarian Targaryen.

    I kinda wonder why Chelsi Peretti wasn’t in the the Key & Peele bit

    A lot of people don’t like Tracy Morgan, but I thought his segment was very good.
