We never paid much attention to Red Nose Day in years past, but there’s never been a year like this! So we just may don our digital red noses (no touching faces!) and watch tonight’s two NBC specials that support the cause of ending child poverty.

First up at 8 pm ET/PT is Celebrity Escape Room, with Jack Black as host and Ben Stiller, Adam Scott, and Friends co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow solving puzzles to be the first to escape from a series of rooms.

Then, at 9 pm, it’s the two-hour, sixth annual Red Nose Day Special, hosted by This is Us stars Mandy Moore and Justin Hartley.

The special will feature musical performances by Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, OneRepublic, Ellie Goulding, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, Sam Smith, James Taylor, Meghan Trainor and Adrienne Warren.

There will also be comedy from Jim Gaffigan, Tony Hale, Ray Romano and Lilly Singh.

Finally, you can expect to see such celebrities as Julia Roberts, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Paul Rudd, 5 Seconds of Summer, Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Garner, Ricky Gervais, Joel McHale, Stephen Merchant, Sarah Silverman, Susan Kelechi-Watson, Bryan Cranston, Mario Lopez, Milo Ventimiglia and Noah Jupe.
