08 Mar Comic Relief and Oxfam team up for unique comedy gig in London
Adding to this year’s International Women’s Day celebrations, Comic Relief and Oxfam have joined forces to put on a unique comedy gig at the Leicester Square Theatre today.
The gig, called ‘Women Stand Up’ will feature an all-female line up with Kerry Godliman hosting a wonderful night of fresh raw talent and familiar faces.
A host of comedy stars of the future and female comedy legends have already pledged their support, with Bridget Christie, Mae Martin, Shappi Khorsandi, Birthday Girls, Athena Kugblenu, Massive Dad, Evelyn Mok and some very special guests all appearing of the night.
Comic Relief founder Richard Curtis said, “Red Nose Day has always benefited from the support of incredible British comic talent, so it seems right that this year we’re handing the mic over to some of the most exciting new names on the circuit, from writers to stand ups and actors. Oxfam has been a brilliant partner of ours from the very beginning – and is now one of the organisations through which the money raised through Red Nose Day is spent supporting women and girls living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world. It should be a great event.”
