Presenting Stand Up for The Loss Foundation, a comedy night where your laughter benefits charity.
Launched in 2015, Stand up for The Loss Foundation, has recruited incredible line-ups of the country’s best comedic talent, including Stewart Lee, Doc Brown, Andy Parsons, Kerry Godliman, Aisling Bea, Sara Pascoe, Paul Sinha, Danny Bhoy, and more, and all in the name of raising money for bereavement support services.
The event has been praised as the comedy night of the year and also been Time Out’s recommended event.
This year we had side-splittingly good comedians lined up to make people belly-laugh, as well as a few surprises on the night to make it the best evening of their summer!
Back by popular demand we have the very funny Tom Deacon, one of the hottest young comedians and presenters on the circuit. He has made us roar with laughter year after year and this performance will be no exception!
The immensely funny Josh Widdicombe! He is a world-famous stand-up comedian, who you may have seen hosting The Last Leg. Expect ‘hysteria-inducing jokes arriving in lightning quick succession…”, Three Weeks.
The insatiably talented Ed Gamble! “Essentially a great guy delivering humour through your classic microphone/speaker combo!” (Ed’s own words)
The incomparable Joe Wilkinson! As seen on 8 out of 10 Cats, Drunk History, and numerous other TV shows, the hairy headed comedian is well known for providing endless chuckles.
The cool and composed Ava Vidal! “Stand-up with a harsh, dark edge, a refreshing change from all the feel-good crap”, Melbourne Age
The hilarious comedian AND magician Pete Firman! “The new poster-boy for British comedy magic”, The Telegraph.
On the night we launched our pioneering Virtual Reality Campaign, backed by The Big Lottery Fund, which transported people into a virtual world that opened their eyes to our cause and touch their hearts.
