There are charity comedy gigs galore in London. Every week comedians take the time to perform (for free) at stand-up shows across the capital to help raise money for worthy causes. On December 4, Stand-Up for Bowel Cancer takes place at the Shaw Theatre in aid of charity Beating Bowel Cancer. If you’re a comedy newbie, it’s a great opportunity to give you some (comedy) circuit training, as the gig features a line-up of club stalwarts. Terry Alderton (who’s become a bit of circuit legend) headlines the bill, plus support from former ‘Big Breakfast’ presenter Paul Tonkinson, Comedy Store regular John Moloney, Bob Mills, Curtis Walker, Paul Thorne and MC Mickey Hutton. Oh, and there’s a turn from a secret special guest (oooh, mysterious!).
Stand-Up for Bowel Cancer takes place at the Shaw Theatre on December 4, doors at 7pm. Tickets are £22 and can be purchased here. Looking for another good-lookin’ benefit gig? Try Karl and Joz’s Over the Top Christmas Love In, with Harry Hill, Tim Key and lots more.
