Veteran comics Les Dennis, Bobby Davro, Keith Harris and Spit the Dog have pledged their support for Comic Relief 2007, it has been reported.
All of the stars talk about their past glories and their lack of VIP status in a string of television and radio adverts to promote the Kleenex Red Nose Day Blow £1 packs.
The first advert, which will be broadcast on Wednesday, shows Les Dennis asking “what’s funny about Ricky Gervais?”, before mocking David Brent’s famous dance from The Office.
The other ads show Keith Harris admitting times have become so hard he’s sold Orville to “some bloke down the pub”, Bobby Davro breaking down in tears because he’s “never on the telly anymore” and Bob Carolgees claiming that Spit the Dog is “A-list and should be treated like it”.
Emma Leech, Kleenex brand manager, said: “Comic Relief does incredible work here in the UK and Africa so we are really proud to be involved.
“Comic Relief also fits with our new Let It Out campaign encouraging people to let it out both physically and emotionally whether through laughter, tears or just a good blow of your nose.”
The Kleenex Blow £1 promotion gives five winners the chance to be VIP guests of Comic Relief on Red Nose Day on March 16.
To enter, people have to text an on-pack number which also gives the chance to win a Kleenex blow-up Red Nose Seat, with one available every hour, and 70p from every text sent will go to Comic Relief.
