Joel Dommett hosts special Comic Relief Live show at Brighton Fringe

17th May 2018

17th May 2018: Comedian and actor Joel Dommett is set to host an incredible night of hilarity with a one-off Comic Relief Live show at Brighton Fringe this month.

Joining him will be some of the country’s most exciting and fresh comedy talent – Edinburgh Newcomer Award winner and podcaster Sofie Hagen, Scottish Comedian of the Year winner Larry Dean, BBC New Comedy Award winner Angela Barnes, and upcoming stars Catherine Bohart, Lauren Pattison and Brennan Reece.

The host of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here Now and his star line-up will be taking to the stage at one of the best venues in the South-East - Komedia –on Wednesday 30th May at 8pm.

Explaining why he’s especially excited about this gig, Joel said: “I’m heading to Brighton for this year’s Fringe and bringing with me some sweet new names on the comedy grapevine. I always love performing in Brighton, and not only because the transport links back to my house are fantastic, but it’s like London’s fabulous little brother who went to fashion college and joined an improv group. Money raised from the gig will enable Comic Relief to help people here in the UK and around the world! Grab your ticket now – it’s a great cause and it’s going to be a super fun night!”

Following the success of previous Comic Relief Live gigs, the event is set to be an epic evening and all for a good cause, meaning every laugh really does matter!

At least £5 per ticket goes to Comic Relief. To get yours, visit the Komedia website(opens in new window).
