Host Deirdre O’Kane said of the charity show: "After three years of fantastic live fundraising events, it's so exciting to be bringing this to TV for the first time in Ireland with RTÉ. I'm in awe of the response we've already received from comedians and performers and the incredible efforts our partners at RTÉ and the Community Foundation for Ireland have put in to make the show happen. It's going to be a memory-making night that'll raise serious funds to help people who need it most as a result of Covid 19."
'RTE Does Comic Relief' kicks off on RTE One at 8pm on Friday, June 26.
