Tuesday’s show with Nick Helm at The Komedia has SOLD OUT! Thanks very much if you bought a ticket and are helping raise money for Martlets Hospice. If you have yet to purchase a ticket there may be a final few left on the door for followers of this blog. Let us know.
Thanks also if you came to our last sold out show with Stephen Carlin. Complete with auction money and donations the event raised over £900 for Whoopsadaisy and little children with cerebral palsy. A fantastic amount for a fantastic charity. Check out their work here: www.whoopsadaisy.org
We’re delighted to announce that our May show is with Matthew Crosby of Pappy’s and TV’s Badults fame, to raise money for Target TB. He’s brilliant! Let’s make it our third sold out show this year! We tend to do one international charity each year and Target TB is a small Brighton-based charity that raises money for people in India and Africa.
More exciting news this week: Stewart Lee is definitely absolutely utterly confirmed and coming to gig with us this summer, showcasing new material. We’ll be offering advance pre-sale tickets to followers of this blog so please be sure to follow it and to Like our official Facebook Page via the link on our Home Page (we have other Chuckle sites with loads of followers but this is the one that appears to show how popular we are – Facebook made us do it). So join the club and we’ll be in touch with a special code and a funny handshake.
Recently the comedy world has been frenzied about all things Festival, and we will be joining the party and taking Charity Chuckle to the Edinburgh Fringe later this year with Just The Tonic at the Caves, for the first week only, 4.45pm at the Fancy Room, and we’ll be inviting all our favourite acts to take part. Twitter will no doubt be the main means of communication in Edinburgh this year, so please make sure you’re signed up to @charitychuckle – if you like that sort of thing!
And finally… Grand National horse the Big Shu may have fallen at the third post at the weekend, but Charity Chuckle co-promoter Jim Holland is going for gold with his first solo stand-up show, Shoegazing. He’ll be performing at the Brighton Fringe in May and for the whole of August at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival – 6.20pm at the Caves Wee Room on Niddry St. He’s already had a wicked response to Work in Progress shows; Brighton’s own comedy son Seann Walsh “cried with laughter!”
Look out for Jim’s previews in Brighton including Monday 7th April with Nathanial Metcalfe at the Caroline of Brunswick – BOOK HERE – and Tuesday 29th April with Aidan Goatley, also at the Caroline. Or check out the more professional version of the Shoegazing: Work in Progress shows throughout the Brighton Fringe at the Dukebox Theatre at the Iron Duke. Here’s Jim’s updated website for more info on the show.
That’s all for now. See you Tuesday – not at the front!
Kerry and Jim
