Wednesday 22nd June: Comic Relief is excited to announce the return of the Comic Relief Comedy Club, with a Pride Edition special that will be held at 21Soho, in London (3-5 Sutton Row, London, W1D 4NR), next month.
The Pride Edition special will take place on Tuesday 5th July at 8pm and will showcase some of the finest LGBTQ+ talent on the comedy circuit, including: Sofie Hagen (she/they), Jodie Mitchell (they/them), Michelle de Swarte (she/her), Charlie George (she/her), and Stephen Bailey (he/him) who will also be hosting. The evening will also include a funny and heartfelt conversation about Pride and what it means to them.
Stephen Bailey said: “It’s so exciting to be a part of such an incredible line up of comedians from the queer community, we never get to be together at the same time and so this is a great way for us to raise money for Comic Relief to support vital LGBTQ+ charities and have a good ol' goss about the rest of the circuit! I adore performing at 21Soho – it's been good to us comics and is one of few venues that actually cares about its decor. So, if you can make it, come on down, we’d love to have you."
Comic Relief is proud to support Pride and has funded LGBTQ+ work that fights against injustice and discrimination in the UK and around the world for over 25 years.
Tickets for Comic Relief Comedy Club: Pride Edition cost £8 plus booking fee and can be purchased here(opens in new window), with all proceeds going directly to LGBTQ+ charities & projects.
