A cornucopia of the country’s top comedians will join forces for a series of very special one-off gigs for Help Refugees: Stand Up 4 Refugees 2017.
Five fundraising gigs are set to be performed in five cities featuring some of UK comedy’s finest performers.
One of the five shows will take place at the Brighton Dome on 21 June, with Shappi Khorsandi and Mark Steel leading the performances and Jen Brister taking up the MC’s mic.
All the money from ticket sales will go to Help Refugees, the biggest grassroots distributor of aid to those in Europe and the Middle East currently affected by the global migrant crisis and an important voice in the call for fair treatment towards refugees and asylum seekers in the UK and abroad. Help Refugees currently operate in over twenty camps in Europe and the Middle East and their winter fundraising appeal raised nearly £1 million, all of which goes directly to the front lines of the crisis.
