Top British comedian Adam Bloom will be headlining the bill at a charity comedy night in Islington in February – to raise money to support disabled and terminally ill children in London.
The Arc in Angel is the venue for the event on Tuesday 26 February, which is being organised by local comedy fans David Benaim and Aryeh Citron.
Adam Bloom is a familiar face on TV’s Mock The Week and Never Mind the Buzzcocks, is a regular at the Edinburgh Festival and has had three comedy series commissioned by BBC Radio 4. The comedy night will feature three additional talented acts; Mae Martin, Joe Bor and Prince Abdi have between them racked up a host of TV appearances and comedy awards, with MC Bryan Lacey.
Advance tickets are £12 each from www.chucklesforcharity.co.uk
Alternatively, they can be purchased on the door, priced at £15. For more information, go to: https://www.facebook.com/events/139875289503868/
All proceeds from the event will be donated to leading UK children’s disability charity Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children, to help fund its Kit Box Service. Newlife offers the loan of Kit Boxes full of sensory toys and development aids for children with specialist needs; each one contains around £400 of equipment and they are available on a three-month loan, delivered directly to families’ homes. All Newlife services can be accessed by contacting the Nurse Helpline on 0800 902 0095 or by emailing [email protected] All Newlife services are free of charge.
