Can a group of comedians put on a live comedy show and use laughter to change the world? Well, our history says so.
That’s why we’re bringing together some of your favourite comedians for a special stand-up show; Comic Relief - Live at The London Palladium.
What can I expect?
On Monday 26 February, get ready for a belly-aching laugh with live performances from Aisling Bea, Joel Dommett, Fatiha El-Ghorri, Rosie Jones, Sara Pascoe, Mawaan Rizwan, and the Comic Relief legend himself – Sir Lenny Henry.
Sir Lenny has been cracking jokes and wearing Noses for an incredible 39 (seriously, 39?!) years. And this year, he’s handing over the mic to a line-up of the finest and funniest comedians around to take the reins.
What better way to mark the beginning of a new era than returning to those early days when Lenny put on a “one-night” Comic Relief stand up gig in 1986 - setting the stage for decades of the best kind of giving - comedy and compassion all rolled into one.
And now it’s time for the encore!
Join us for a very special evening of stand-up comedy as we say thank you to Lenny and celebrate his 39 years of being funny for money.
How do I attend?
Tickets are on sale now. Doors open: 6.30pm. Show starts: 7.30pm. Over 16s only.
Before I go, at least tell me a joke?
Nice try, you’ll have to buy a ticket to get those! What we can tell you is that all profits will go directly to Comic Relief.
So, that means a night out seeing some of your favourite comedians could help put food on plates and roofs over heads, keep little ones safe and help support families affected by conflict and climate change.
Just by seeing something funny, you’ll help raise loads of money. Sounds like a good deal to us!
All profits will be donated to Comic Relief. Comic Relief is the operating name of Charity Projects, a registered charity in England and Wales (326568) and Scotland (SCO39730)
