(2001, 97 mins, Amnesty International, Directed by Declan Lowney)

Early in the New Millennium, John Cleese handed over the organizing of future Amnesty-UK shows to Eddie Izzard, who described his first production as "the son of the Secret Policeman's Ball". Izzard re-fashioned the concept for the new era in this 2001 show held at London's Wembley Arena. Izzard hand-picked the cream of contemporary British comedians to join him including: Harry Enfield, Paul Whitehouse, Jeremy Hardy, Vic Reeves, Phill Jupitus, Dom Joly and Jonathan Ross. The show's Python heritage was saluted with a spirited updated version of the "Four Yorkshiremen" skit that included Izzard and actor Alan Rickman. The show also featured cameo appearances by Dawn French, Colin Firth, Richard E. Grant, Tim Roth, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Kate Moss and Michael Stipe. Live music was provided by by U2, Tom Jones, the Stereophonics and Badly Drawn Boy. This will be the US Premiere of the film in any media and its World Theatrical Premiere
