You've heard all the jokes about comedians walking into a bar, but what happens when a trio of self-described "chuckleheads" dedicated to fighting climate change, walk into the UN?

We recorded the result, for our latest episode of The Lid Is On, UN Radio's new podcast series.

Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad and Maya Rudolph are the stars of The Angry Birds Movie, due to be released in May.

The internationally-renowned Hollywood comedians were at UN headquarters recently to help inspire climate action, towards a more sustainable and happier future, for us all.

It's a tale of how a bunch of angry mobile game characters, finally saw green, with tears and plenty of laughter along the way.

Dianne Penn has the full story.

"The Lid is On" is also available on SoundCloud:
