The 'Give It Up for Comic Relief' gig will be on BBC Three, with backstage coverage hosted by Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 and a highlights package broadcasted on BBC One.
Kevin Cahill, CEO at Comic Relief said, "Comic Relief has funded work tackling substance abuse for many years. We were thrilled when Russell Brand offered to highlight the issue and raise funds to help tackle the problem. It's a perfect use of his celebrity profile to front the Give It Up for Comic Relief gig and work behind the scenes to put it all together. He has played a blinder."
Money raised from ticket sales as part of 'Give It Up for Comic Relief' will go to help support people affected by drug and alcohol addiction.
